An MMO game referred to as a "survival sandbox" by its creators, Daybreak Game Company. H1Z1 takes place in an alternate world, 15 years after the discovery of the titular virus that caused a world-wide zombie epidemic. The few survivors fight for their lives, struggling against zombies, wild animals, and other surviving factions. During the game, players get the chance to build a shelter or even entire cities somewhere in the United States. An extensive crafting system also makes it possible to craft useful items from procured raw materials. On the technical side, H1Z1 uses a modernized version of the Forgelight engine which was previously used in Planetside 2 and EverQuest Next among others. The game uses the free-to-play model with micropayments for some additional features.

H1Z1 is an attempt to enter to the MMO games world with the zombie apocalypse, known as survival sandbox by the large studio Sony Online Entertainment. Interestingly, it is worth to add during discussing the game that the Japanese giant has put on the free of micropayments (free-to-play) model.

Story

The action of production takes place 15 years after detecting the H1Z1 virus - at this time the civilization lies in ruins and the people who remain conduct ruthless struggle for survival, struggling with hordes of living dead. The starting point of the game is a random town somewhere in the United States, but with the passing of the time, developer of the game has increased the size of the world, filling it in both extensive wilderness and big cities. To make it easier to roam this vast space, the players receive a variety of vehicles and aircrafts.

Gameplay

What is more, the players can also fill the virtual America. They receive a rich set of tools, enabling them to obtain raw materials (for example, by cutting trees) and then building their own shelters, houses and even entire settlements.

Nothing stands in the way to the players linked to the group, for example, helping each other and trying to survive at the expense of other survivors. The ability of building a post-apocalyptic society makes that at each server can be thousands of players who play simultaneously.

While we are speaking of building, it should also be mentioned the possibility of setting fire to various things (especially those which have been left by others). There is no shortage of craft developed system that allows the construction of tools or weapons (such as Molotov cocktails). The players must be careful not only for each other and zombies, but also for wild animals. What is more, they have to take care of the basic needs of their characters, like food or a place to sleep.

In the game there is no promotion of the character to the next levels of experience and skills. Furthermore, characterís death is not permanent - after the death of the hero is resurrection. Nevertheless, H1Z1 game is characterized by a dark climate and atmosphere of terror. We can observe the action from a first or third-person (FPP / TPP) perspective.

Technology

The game was created using Forgelight engine - the same that drives PlanetSide 2, Landmark and EverQuest Next. What is interesting, the presented game has received support for Player Studio services, allowing players to exchange their creations, also for real money.
