H1Z1 is building an improved eight-square-kilometer map

    
12

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.”

Good for the fans, but I’m still completely zombie’d out when it comes to gaming.

So… they’re just now working on something that was part of their original promise, when they said the current map was “only one small section of the playable world.” Back pats all around I guess….?

Damonvile Wratts I’d guess that at about ~25,600 french-fries^2

Wratts they’re Americans trying to decipher the metric system. Just be glad they didn’t say it’s 800 french fries long.
