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.”

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
As you play, you will have to worry about four main things; Irradiation, hunger, thirst, and health. Irradiation is the hardest to take care of once you progress. If you get into battles with hoardes of zombies, you can easily die due to radiation sickness.

Health is also pretty dificult to take care of, but not nearly as much. You can heal from eating, using medkits, and a few other actions. Hunger and thirst are the easiest to take care of. You can find canteens, and fill them with ocean water to avoid having to find bottled water or soda. You can also grow crops, and cultivate a farm at a location of your choice. A few tips I can give are:

Set up a base away from zombies or towns, they can attack and destroy crops, and bases.

Be sure to NEVER provoke zombies once you first start with no weapon, unless you are an older player.

Also, make sure that the first thing you do is raid a farmhouse, you can find arrows, bows, guns, axes, bats, chainsaws, etc.

You will sometimes find what I like to call the "Hulk"
It is a zombie that is larger than normal, and does alot of damage. If you try to fight him, be sure to kite him, or just shoot him.

If you don't know what kiting is, it is when you allow the enemy to attack, and when he is done attacking, stab him, then quickly run back before he hits you. Just do that continuously to kill him.

The "Hulk" can drop a variety of military grade weapons. You may find that the most prominent of all is the "Dragonfang"

The Dragonfang is an LMG, with a magazine size of 100. Also, there is crafting in this game, which is much too complicated to get into on a post, but i can say that you can repair weapons, craft barricades, walls, doors, roofing, gun attachments, apparel, bandages, and many other things.

Also, be sure to check out the airport or military base when you get very good gear.

If you find any of what i said intrigueing, then by any means necessary, get this game.
