Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

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.”

Important Information Regarding Marketplace Items

On July 25th, 2016 we will be removing the ability to sell certain older H1Z1 crate items on the Steam Marketplace. Crate items have been marked trade only since Mercenary Crates were released last year. This change brings the older (pre-Mercenary Crate) items in line with the rest of the crate items in the game. Please note that crates themselves can still be traded and sold on the Steam marketplace.

Producer's Letter For July 13th

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while since I posted one of these. Although I do apologize for the extended dry period, I do want to clarify my update cadence going forward. As you noticed last update, our current build was on the Test Server for a good amount of time. This supports our general philosophy that publishes remain on test until they reach a quality level we are comfortable with. I know some of you are thinking, “Yea, there were still bugs in that publish”. Fact is, H1Z1 has been receiving a lot of changes under the hood and we just adopted some of the combat improvements from KOTK which we feel are relevant to JS. This includes many bug fixes and performance adjustments. As much as we would love to avoid a single issue, as soon as we publish an update to the masses, issues tend to show themselves more rapidly. We are happy that we could turn a lot of these around quickly and we want to thank all of you who helped us out by reporting issues.

Moving forward, you can expect an official updated from me AFTER we do a live publish. This way, you get the new stuff and you see what’s coming next. Pretty straightforward!

So, what’s happen in development?
As usual, no guarantees for release date of the following topics. They’ll go live when they’re ready and they will hit the Test Server first!

Weapon enhancement recipes
You’ll now be able to kill rare zombies to find prototype weapon parts. You’ll combine these prototype parts with normal weapons to discover a recipe. The newly crafted weapon will have special abilities and stats. They will also have finite lifetime and cannot be repaired. So, save these for a “Special” occasion.


Upon death
You player will now rise as a zombie. So you or your friends will have to….um….kill you again to get your stuff back. Should be fun!

Boss zombie experimentation
I don’t want to spill the beans too much on this one. As we continue growing Just Survive, we’re always looking for ways to introduce new play loops into the game. Having boss encounters plays well with many of the things we want to do going forward. So, don’t be surprised if you run across a more vicious situation sometime soon. And you thought bears were scary! Hah!

Survival Score Servers:
We’re putting together another server ruleset. This one is designed around the notion of “How well did I survive?”

It’s going to work something like this:

A few designated servers will be on an auto wipe system. Every XX weeks (1, 2 or 3 possibly) the world will end. The server will wipe itself and give a final score to each player. This score is accumulated and displayed in the UI as you are playing. You’ll get points for things like zombie kills, recipe discovery... Etc. Think of it as a more advanced version of the death screen when it presents your end stats. Past scores will be available for some undetermined length of time also.

We are still designing and working out the kinks with this one and you can expect to play it on the Test Server first to provide your own feedback.
Expect to hear more about this in the future.

Limited Base Building
Couple fixes:
The Villas are being opened for base building
Campfires, torches and flares are no longer restricted from the rule
Sorry Krakow players….we missed you in the rule update. You are getting the rule also.

Exploiters
We are fully aware of the current exploits going on. We do not speak publically regarding steps being taken when dealing with this sort of thing. But I will say, if you are caught exploiting, you will be banned. Please pass it along

Loot
For a long time now, loot has been in a state which wasn’t on par with a survival experience. We’ve read all your posts; we’ve gone invisible and observed many players. We’ve checked high, low and medium pop servers. We spoke to many players live in chat.

I’m sorry if we’ve given you the easy life in the past but times need to change a bit. In a nutshell, the current loot drop rates are intended. Building a base was never intended to be a simple task btw…

That’s all I have for now.
Peace out and see you all in game!

H1Z1

Pro's, Good survival/zombie game. Good gameplay. Fun when your just trying to kill some time.

Con's. Community, What has happened is there is a handfull of people who want to play a survival game but all the guys who aren't good enough to play KOTK run around and KOS the survival players. Being sniped by someone with a hunting rifle at long range hiding in tall grass gets old after the 50th time. Apparently people in India just really want to be mass murderers for no apparent reason. Vehicle controls are a bit clunky but not to terrible.

Like the game, would like to reccomend it but the community kills it for me. They have turned it into Call of Duty where basically everyone has a gun but you, someone will most likely see you before you find a gun and ammo for the gun you have. You will die alot with no possibility to defend yourself. Then some Indian kid will talk trash like he is good at PVP when truth is if he was good at PVP he would be playing KOTK instead of just survive.

In closing If your looking for a survival game this is OK. If your looking for a survival game where everyone you see will have you on KOS armed or not it is a little better. If your looking for a PVP game with a bunch of scrubs who are to afraid to play a game geared specifically toword PVP but still want to play with their epeen, or kill people who aren't really PVP focused so you can feel like your good at a game for once, this is probably the game for you.

This game has turned from a zombie survival game with a battle royal killing field to KING OF THE KILL. Buy our crates today!

The game wasn't meant to be a zombie themed team deathmatch game but thats what it has come down to. The updates they do for this game are few and far between but now the king of the kill side of things now there is the bread butter and entire turkey meal.

I hate to be the person that says they like the game and then leave a negative review but I'm being honest here. I like most have spent way to much on this game with the crates and keys. I look back at how much I spent and it makes me sick to think I wasted so much for skins for a game. When you spend over 100 bucks on a game that costs 20 bucks *bought before the split happened* it is a little bit sickening. My sick wasn't 100 bucks wasted though. Multiply that number by ten. Yes over $1,000 worth of useless garbage and still never getting all the skins I wanted. One of the worset choices I could have made. I chose to support them because i do enjoy the game and I thought they still had a chance to make this game great.

After months and months of promises of new content coming and "Hey Community we have great things to come checkout the new screamer zombie!" Yes we have that now but where is our Katana blade? Where is the New map they said was going to go live 6 months ago? Its on King of the kill oh yeah I see whats going on here.

People complain about the hackers and glitchers. Well yes there are measures that they could have done to make the game yes vulnerable to being attacked by scripters / hackers however you see those people as. If people want to cheat in a game they will find a way. For goodnessake we got people glitching out farmville just to get ahead on that game. My point is, there is always going to be hackers in the game unless they truely work on a anticheat of their own.

Everyone has a right to their own opinion, and daybreak has the right to ignore mine. Like I said before I love the game and I want to believe in the dev team but I can't take them serious when all they push is king of the kill on this game and crates crates creates...

I bought the game when it came out... They have done a great job, but there are still SO MANY BUGS and It is DYING. I gave it a chance but im not going to play it until they think of the players other than dumb ♥♥♥ skins! I am so vivid with how they are wasting all the earnings to MAKING SKINS, INSTEAD OF TRYING TO UPDATE THE DAMN GAME!
FIX YOUR ♥♥♥♥ DAYBREAK!

I bought this game a long time ago. It was infested with cheaters. Chinese people and cheaters. Cheating Chinese Cheaters. Oh also everyone would block off the loot spawns with man made huts.

Probably a year later now, all of this is still happening. And the devs, like most "early access" devs (which will never fully release, they cant until they fix their problems, and there seems to be no forward progress towards this end.)

At this point it's an early access cash grab where the only work the dev team does is release new crates so you have to buy more keys from them.

If you like Pay to Play where you are the only one whos playing legit on the server where your base can be completely destroyed in the span of an hour, buy this game!

If not, avoid. I'd go a step further and avoid all early access games unless they are from indie developers who are actually working on their game.

This has been early access for at least a year, and will never leave this stage of development. They are too busy milking the cow.

First to talk about the game:
It is quite enjoyable as a game. To run around trying to find some stuff gather up materials and craft lots of items exp: base, harvest fields, repair and healing kits and etc.
What made me think about the game and want me to share my opinion was:
1) The game is out for some time now, but some of the features are still not finished.
exp: 1 - Base buildings can be entered with just disconnecting cable and going through metal walls or doors. Which allows sometimes to steal loot from parts of the base that is not fully locked. ( But the base is blocked from the outside right ?)
2 - When you get into the game and you played it a bit, you discover that you can raid other peoples bases, but then you walk around peoples bases and suddenly see shacks flying in the air with no connections to the ground. Sad part you have a chance of raiding them cause some of the bases can be built from 16 or more foundations that means you have to destroy every building around that shack that you want to raid and that would take an inmeresuable amount of resources which would you result busily living in the game and not enjoying it.
3 - I found out a lot of drivers and settings you can do to boost your fps, but that doesn't work if the area you live in is highly populated. Most of the computers that have only minimum or medium requirements can't run around in the city and play normal course they get the really low frame rate or impossible drops. So we are speaking of 0 optimized for NVIDIA or Radeon video cards.
4 - The massive exploits like you can farm metal as much as you want with just 1 crowbar or similar materials.
Would I recommend buying the game? No, it is not worth your time at the moment until they finally release it and update the visual
