Early Access First Impressions - TheHiveLeader

TheHiveLeader went to San Diego to get hands-on experience with H1Z1. Available for Early Access on Steam on January 15th!


Smedley Predicts 150-200 Early Access Servers

John Smedley has taken to Twitter in a big way this morning with his prediction that H1Z1 will need 150-200 early access servers to accommodate all of the interested players. In addition, he mentions that even "disgusting PvE Carebear servers" will be part of that number.


TheHiveLeader to Live Stream Tomorrow

TheHiveLeader will be on hand in San Diego tomorrow to bring our readers a first-ever live stream event featuring H1Z1. The show will be hosted here in our own MMORPG.com Live Stream room from 3:00 pm PST / 6:00 pm EST tomorrow, Friday, January 9th. Be sure to be here for all three hours to get a first hand look at Sony's new zombie-themed MMO.


Early Access Begins on January 15th

Sony Online Entertainment's John Smedley has posted to the H1Z1 Reddit that early access will begin on January 15th. The team had originally planned to push H1Z1 out by the end of 2014 but felt it needed more time to give the game more polish. Early Access will not be a full game but is, according to Smedley, a fun game to play. Players can gain access to H1Z1 for $19.99 and "a more expensive one that we will announce here shortly".


Release Date Expected Today

Today marks a banner day in the development of H1Z1. Sony Online Entertainment will be announcing the release date of the post-apocalyptic zombie-themed MMO. We'll update this post as soon as we hear.


Art & the Game

Sony Online Entertainment's Ruby Opfer is the host of a new H1Z1 video where she speaks about the art in the game. She spends the video answering player-submitted questions alongside images from the game. Check it out!

The Why of Weapon Inclusion Explained

In a new developer blog on the H1Z1 site, Senior Game Designer Jimmy Whisenhunt discusses how various weapons 'made the cut' to be included in the game. After, Whisenhunt writes about the continuing design process from selection through the actual in-game model.


It's Us Against Zombies

Senior Designer Jimmy Whisenhunt was pretty sure about what he wanted for SOE's upcoming Zombie apocalypse survival MMO, H1Z1. “It’s got to make sense,” he said, “the game design has to be accessible and logical.”


What’s Next for H1Z1?

When some of PlanetSide 2’s best and brightest developers stepped away from the game several months ago to work on a new secret project, you sort of knew something special had to be in the pipe. It wasn’t long before we found out that it was SOE’s new survival horror MMO, H1Z1. No, it’s not a game about rampaging STDs, but rather a game about shambling zombies.

Making Weather a True Part of the Game

In most MMOs, weather is just a novelty. It adds some ambiance to the world and makes a zone seem more lifelike. That’s not going to be the case with SOE’s zombie survival MMORPG H1Z1 (also known as Hizzy). I had the chance to sit down and chat with Senior Designer Jimmy Wisenhunt and Graphics Programmer Ryan Favale to talk about how weather in their game won’t be just a setpiece, but a part of the survival and gameplay in H1Z1.


Demo Shows Off Latest Features

A new video demo of H1Z1 has been released. In it, Sony Online Entertainment's Senior Designer Jimmy Whisenhunt shows players the latest features to be added to the game that is set to enter its Early Access Launch in the near future. Viewers can get a look at such systems as survival tactics, crafting, new weapons and how weather will play a part in every player's experience.


Color Me Optimistic

When I first watched the stream where John Smedley, President SOE, announced H1Z1 I was more than a little concerned in the direction the development of the game would take. After my meeting with Adam Clegg, one of the developers working on H1Z1, to discuss development on the Survival Horror MMORPG I have started to believe this game can do well in the genre.
