Don’t get too comfortable with the current zone layout in either version of H1Z1. A new map, code-named “Z2,” is currently in development and will be placed into both King of the Kill and Just Survive.
In this week’s producer’s letter, the team said that this map will offer better performance and be a visual improvement on what’s already in the game. “Compared to any other single feature, Z2 is the most resource intensive to develop,” the letter said. “It has the largest single team working on it, and it will be in development for many months in total. With an 8km x 8km playable space, it is easy to see why it needs so much effort.”
In other H1Z1 news, the team invited players to check out the new King of the Kill Ignition mode this weekend and promised the delivery of a new crate next week themed around (seriously) “extreme zombie wrestling.”
