What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“H1Z1 has always been developed under the principal of creating a game side-by-side with our players. As part of the H1Z1 franchise, we want to grow our relationship with our players and continue to develop Just Survive as an Early Access title with our community. We’ll continue to use Early Access as an opportunity to incorporate player feedback, work out bugs, and adjust and expand features to ensure the best possible experience at launch.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“H1Z1: Just Survive is the game that strives to deeply immerse players into its post-apocalyptic world with emergent gameplay elements like weather, body sim, survival crafting and base building. We are working side-by-side with our players to ensure that they get the best experience possible at launch, and the game will remain in Early Access through the end of the year as we add more robust systems and features.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“H1Z1 will continue to grow and evolve throughout development, and features will be refined and adjusted based on player feedback. Players can look forward to exciting content, such as: an expanded selection of vehicles and gear, diverse character creation, and a robust base building to create an exciting survival MMO experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Players up to the challenge can test their survival skills in game now. We will continue to develop, implement and improve features and systems that will fully immerse players into the post-apocalyptic world throughout Early Access, as well as incorporate player feedback. Those who choose to purchase Just Survive should anticipate an evolving feature set and bugs as systems are created and refined.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“H1Z1: Just Survive is available for $19.99 USD with optional in-game purchases.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Player feedback plays a major role in the development process of Last Stand. Our players challenge us as developers to be that much better at delivering great game experiences, and we invite and encourage them to join the conversation on Twitter, Reddit, and the Steam forums.”

Game Update December 2nd

Hi Survivors! 

Two months ago, we updated Just Survive…and it wasn’t the prettiest update we’ve done in the game’s history. 

We’ve taken a different approach to how we deal with Live patches since then. We’re communicating with you, the community, as much as we can about what we’re up to (and what you’re seeing) on Reddit and on Discord. We’re using Test heavily and repeatedly. If you’re unfamiliar with what we’ve been up to on Test since that last update, take a peek at these past Reddit posts here, here, and here and you’ll see what I mean. We listened to your feedback. We addressed issue after issue, tweaked, and resubmitted back to Test – not directly to Live. We intend to continue using Test just like this in the future.

This Live patch addresses a long list of issues so I’ll highlight just some of the more important ones: lag was a major issue with the last update.  We’ve reduced it. Vehicle and base exploits were huge issues. We’ve addressed those. Loot balance was a little inconsistent before. We’ve tweaked that, too. Perhaps what’s been most important to me to address is simply how we interact with you, the Just Survive community. This starts by earning your trust back. It’s been a long two months, but I hope the team’s efforts with this update confirm our devotion to this game and to all of you.

In my first two months here, I’ve learned a ton about Just Survive and more importantly, about you guys. I can say beyond the shadow of a doubt that the core player base here is one of the most devoted I’ve personally ever seen in my career. That’s beyond inspiring to me. I’m not going to lie to you - we’re not always going to see eye to eye. We’re going to break a few things along the way. And we might not always fix things in the order you want us to. But I can promise you that I’ll always be straight with you and communicate with you on a regular basis. This means frequent updates on Reddit. It means doing AMAs now that we’ve restored the Live version of the game to something you will enjoy playing again. It means Community Outbreak streams with the JS team. 

Most exciting to me is that it means finally being able to talk about what we have planned for 2017. What most people don’t know yet is that we have a core portion of the team that has been working on nothing but the future of Just Survive. We’ll finally get to start talking about that soon. Fix now, cool later. Right? We’re getting a lot closer. 

Just Survive isn’t dead. Far from it. We’re just getting started.

We've made a ton of fixes you can see the full list of here!

Hello from Landon Montgomery -- New H1Z1: Just Survive GM

Hello Survivors!

My name is Landon Montgomery and I’m celebrating my second week here at Daybreak as the new General Manager of H1Z1: Just Survive. I wanted to say hello to the community and take a moment to give you some detail on me and my role. As GM, it’s my job to oversee Just Survive top to bottom and deliver on the existing and future promises of the game. Speaking of which, we have some really cool design plans forming up as I write this that I’ll be stoked to share with you in the coming months. Right now however, I’m focused on getting the live build to a solid, high quality state for the Just Survive community.

Leading up to and during the short time I have been here, I’ve been able to assess the Just Survive history both internally and externally. And, while I recognize that the past year has been a little frustrating for the loyal crowd, I know that the internal team is excited to push forward and do right by you, the players. It’s one of the reasons I’m here and why we’re actively building up the Just Survive team. We’ve added several key roles and we are excited to introduce these additional team members in the coming weeks.

In addition to forming a solid team, my main objectives for the development team are to communicate with you on a more frequent and consistent basis while also delivering against what we have communicated. Collectively, we want to focus on solid updates and quality content. The team is actively reading and listening to your discussions on Reddit and social and we have lots of ideas that we want to implement, but our key focus will be consistent delivery of well tested updates that don’t break other things.

Easy to say, right? So, why should you listen to me?

I’ve been in the game industry since 1996. I joined a studio back then by the name of Virtus where I co-developed the first id authorized third-party Quake level editor, Deathmatch Maker. After that, I spent time as a level designer and artist at Bethesda Softworks before moving to join the startup Rebel Boat Rocker. We worked on a FPS in the late ‘90s for EA called Prax War, but it was eventually cancelled. This turned out to be one of the luckiest moments in my life, and as a direct result, I was able to co-found Gearbox Software.

I did a bit of everything at Gearbox. By day, I was the COO. By night, I was an artist/animator/director/producer and so on. We all wore many hats those first few years. I spent some of the best years of my life at GBX. We’d worked on so many great IPs, from Half-Life to Halo, Tony Hawk to James Bond, and we’d successfully launched our own original IPs, Brothers in Arms and Borderlands. I’d accomplished so much of what I’d dreamed of doing at that point in my life, but decided it was time to shift focus to another important job– I just wanted to be a good dad. As a result, I was able to spend the first years of my little girl’s life right there with her. I got to see all of the magical first moments in person and I loved every minute of it.

Eventually I started to miss the gaming industry and took a contract gig with Nintendo that reignited my passion for developing games. It is my default setting and I knew it was time to come back.

When I started talking to Daybreak I came out here to San Diego to see things in person and realized almost immediately that I had to join this team. My past two weeks on site have solidified that the people here are amazing, the talent pool is deep, the passion and energy is through the roof, and the opportunities and abilities of the studio are super compelling. I’m really excited to be a part of this family.

We have so much planned for the Just Survive community and I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t believe in what we have in store for you all. In the coming weeks and months, I’ll be able to share some of these things with you. For now, I want to focus on stabilizing the live game and moving forward from there. You all deserve that and so much more to boot. I’ve seen what lies in store of for you guys. It’s beyond what’s been discussed to date and its cool stuff.

As we onboard new team members, we’ll likely do an AMA in the coming weeks so stay tuned for that. For now, I hope that the team and I can demonstrate our absolute dedication to Just Survive and you, the fans.

About This Game

In H1Z1: Just Survive, the H1Z1 zombie virus has crippled civilization. Corrupted by the need to survive, gone are the comforts of society as a new normal permeates the world. You are one of the last remaining humans. Every choice matters, every moment is borrowed time, and every breath could be your last. If you don’t want to join the dead -- or the undead -- you’ll have to be cutthroat, resourceful, and alert at all times. Scavenge, craft, and build to protect yourself from zombies, roaming beasts, and perhaps the deadliest threat of all – fellow humans. Do you have what it takes to Just Survive?
