Is the game totally open world like DayZ?If not,can you describe how it actually is a little?

 

I understand the cash shop is nothing but cosmetics and trivial things that can be obtainable in game as well,do you think this is true?

I've been staring at my screen all day debating if it was worth it to purchase.

Let me know how it goes; in regards to crashes and whatnot. Definitely don't want to spend the money today/soon if it's not on a playable stage yet.

The crashes and bugs are there.

The world is open but no idea how big for i haven't been able to explore too much yet although i encountered 3 other players in my first 5 minutes of play.

Considering i haven't played DayZ or anything similar i would say it is worth it.

The cash shop sells very basic items like flashlights and flares,some clubs and ammo.I honestly don't know yet if this is going to be a problem all i know is that you can get cash shop items off of other players corpses.

There only seems to be a portion of the map available at the moment for this phase of testing. I still haven't been able to successfully join a game. Will attempt again after work today.

I believe they stated that alpha stage is only 40% of the worldmap atm - I'm actually not to sure about zones, I don't think it is zones, would feel very awkward if it was, so hopefully it's fully open.

 

Though they will be expanding the world map to be larger and eventually hit 100% before beta, as of what I read atleast

Yeah. there's no zoning or instancing. Colorado is one cohesive map.

Its open world, nozones or anything... the only instances will be for guild wanting to rent a place to build their base, its kind of hosted on a seperate server and not part of the game. its a place to store weapons and grow food and stuff. tho we dont have much info on that at the moment.

 

 

At the moment the game is in Alpha so its not got many active features and its very buggy, but thats what an alpha is there for.
