What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“More things are constantly being added and the experience will change over time. It's less beta testing at this point and more expanding on the game, although bugs and glitches are inevitable.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Most likely for several months, but it will depend on what the community thinks.”

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

“The current final release goal is to improve graphics, upgrade networking functionality, create more content and provide full Windows, OSX and Linux support.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is completely playable with hours and hours of content to explore.”

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

“It will remain free, but the abilities provided by Gold may change. Nothing that will make the game pay to win, however.”

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

“Throughout all of the development so far popularly recommended ideas have been added to the game. This will continue through the Steam release with the forums. The Steam Workshop could also be integrated to allow the community to create their own content. Polls are widely used to gauge community interest in various ideas.”

August 28 Update Notes


When PEI first came out it had to balance every different playstyle from hardcore survival to casual combat. With the addition of the Yukon map those hardcore survival players have a huge harsh location to explore and build bases, and it is the perfect location to begin adding more complex survival mechanics such as temperature and aggressive animals in the future.

Next up I would like to create a map set somewhere in the USA for the opposite side of the playstyle spectrum which will have a much stronger military presence fit for lots of fun PvPing as well as crazy locations to find like a racetrack with racecars.

With those two maps PEI can then be balanced to somewhere in between the extremes, more hardcore mechanics can be added to the Yukon and new weapons can be added to the USA.

What do you think of this plan?
What sort of things would you like to see in the USA map?

Warning: Today's update contains some of the new items/vehicles intended for the USA map, so if you want to experience it all for the first time when this map comes out make sure not to spawn in the sabertooth, peacemaker, heartbreaker, golfcart or taxi.

One thing I'm considering right now is making it so that Gold members can toggle Gold versions of their weapons as an extra bonus. For example on the Timberwolf the main black body part could become shiny Gold, or the barrel/bolt could be Gold accented. What do you think of this idea?

Which gun would you like to see Gold most?
Which melee would you like to see Gold most?

August 21 Update Notes

Steam Economy:

The Steam economy is now fully integrated into Unturned spanning from trading cosmetics to selling them on the Community Market! This allows you to give your character a unique appearance and keep that appearance between servers regardless of what loot you find.

The easiest way to get cosmetics into your Steam backpack is to play the game! After playing a certain amount of time you will occasionally see a cosmetic drop notification showing what has been given to you. Feel free to sell it on the market to make some money!

The rarest drops are Mystery Boxes which, when opened, will give you a random super rare mystery item, or if you're extra lucky you might even get one that has a special effect like fire or sparkles! These require a key to open which cost $1 or your currency equivalent, and are a new way to help support the game if the Gold upgrade price seems a bit steep.

While in-game if you find an item you would like to show instead of your cosmetics, for example a ghillie suit, you can click the button underneath your character preview to toggle them on and off.

If you would like to get your own cosmetics into Unturned's economy you can submit one to the curated Workshop! More details on how to do that can be found here:

  • Added support for metallic textures on shirts/pants.
  • Added destroyed quad models to editor.

  • Fixed clothing menu scaling issues.
  • Fixed blurry edges of scaled item icons.

The in-menu patch notes now show just the changes portion of each announcement, and should fit better on most screens.

Originally the quad was going to be part of the USA map update, but it was too much fun to make so I did it a couple days ago!

About This Game

Unturned is a sandbox game in the emerging multiplayer apocalypse survival genre. Rather than focusing on being an MMO it provides players with easy systems to sit down and survive the zombie infestation with their friends. Over the course of a typical adventure, groups will have a blast fortifying locations, scavenging for supplies, trying to live off the land and negotiating with other people. The game is being developed entirely with the community in focus, and tons of features are based entirely on feedback:

Players can build massive forts out of structural building blocks, or build onto smaller buildings in the world with barricades. It is also possible to create traps and intricate electronic systems. More options for building are constantly being added based on what the community requests.

It is entirely possible to live off the wilderness by harvesting resources, fishing, growing crops and hunting animals down. What sort of survival stuff is added is entirely decided by the community.

The game goes where the community wants it to. The initial release map is set on the lovely Prince Edward Island, but over the next few months many more locations will arrive for players to explore depending on what the community wants to see. Currently the island has plenty of interesting locations to discover and loot.

Players can choose to enter player versus player servers and battle other players to steal their gear. Banditry is highly supported with plenty of weapons and sneaky devices.

Players can join player versus environment servers to team up with other people, and easily create clans to play with their pals.

Early Access Review
"Oh no! Another Minecraft ♥♥♥♥♥♥ Game about Zombies *crying*" No is not!
Unturned is game about Zombies and Survivors where we need (As Survivor) Survive hard times, find food, water, something what you can defend yourself build your first house then upgrade it after hours of playing into Big Castle or something even better.
Singleplayer is pretty cool but is like "pfff ezzzz" there is nothing hard, no players, no fun or at least 10 hours, later you feel bored of that slowly weak Zombies what you will kill with Stick.
Multiplayer Oh Yeah! Thats what im talking about! In Multiplayer you need be really careful any step or noise what you will make can be your last in your terrible life, lots of Bandits, Snipers, even noob with car can kill you in like... 1 sec. And you cannot trust anyone faster or later you will die finally.
+ Big map
+ Multiplayer
+ Steam Workshop
+ Achievements
+ Lots of weapons
+ Even if your computer is toaster your game will open and run... somehow...
+ Slapping zombies *slap*
+ Some types of Zombies (Armored ones etc)
+ Crafting system
+ Hunger System
+ Building

- Boring Singleplayer
- Nothing than Players is dangerous in game
- After 10 hours playing you have almost everything in game
- Lags on servers
- Admins have sometimes wtf powers and can fly :C or kill you even if they are on other side of the map

Unturned is talented game, but still need some work for be an very good Zombie game
