H1Z1 zombies promise a screaming good time

    
10

H1Z1’s developmental plans have long included adding a variety of zombies into the mix, from different looks to different skills. Female zombies were added last October — now get ready for a new one. Remember that undead abomination in a straight jacket that you got a glimpse of in last week’s video? That’s the upcoming screamer zombie. Bound up and with no lower jaw, this creature can’t actually attack a player, but don’t think that makes it harmless. Instead of inflicting damage itself, it emits a blood-curdling wail that brings every zombie anywhere in the vicinity down upon the head of whatever player was unlucky enough to be spotted by it. Get a gander at its wobbly gait in the short animation clips below, and read up on the behind-the-scenes thought of the artists on the official dev blog.

Zombie apoc survival mmo. Months go by and you don’t get the next zombie type. Nope. You get a 3 second video of a “work in progress”. You will all be zombies before daybreak “finishes” one of their products.
I feel for the fans though. Just like EQN, this game was a great idea with a lot of promise.

Well 7 days to die has 2 different screamers now, and the newer one is pretty freaking scary. Went off running and screaming when I missed my shot and spawned literally like a 7th day horde, which came from all directions and several of which found a ladder over on a building we forgot about that they could use to get into our base, from above.

on topic… h1z1…. it shoulda been aliens

I am surprised Daybreak has not seen the writing on the wall regarding H1Z1.   Not many folks really seem to care much about it any more.  Sure, there are a few, relatively speaking; but enough to justify MMO scale development?  Don’t think so.
SOE brought this game out of the closest way to soon.  The time of this genre is fast fading, and will probably be gone by the time H1Z1 is ready for prime time.

Silly zombie. How you are you going to* bite with no jaw!

*I promised my English teacher a long time ago to never write “gonna”, although I think it would have sounded better here.
