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.”

Building Decay:

One issue on large public servers is players who join, place a few buildables and leave forever. With the decay command you can now specify a delay before these items will no longer be saved. By default the timers last 7 real-life days, and are reset whenever the owner or group who placed the buildables joins. You can disable them by using 0 as the timer length, or for example 604800 to restore the 7 day timer. To avoid issues with losing bases on private servers or servers which only boot up every few days the timers also reset when the server has not been launched in half of the duration of the decay.


Skillsets have made a return from! By default they do not spawn with loadouts, but you can configure this on your server by using the ID of the skillset in front of your normal loadout commands. To give the items to all players similarly to how loadouts worked before this update use 255 as the ID, or for a specific skillset the following are supported:

0 - Civilian
1 - Fire Fighter
2 - Police Officer
3 - Spec Ops
4 - Farmer
5 - Fisher
6 - Lumberjack
7 - Worker
8 - Chef
9 - Thief
10 - Doctor
255 - All Skillsets

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.

For a free game, it is amazing!
You've got so many features that many paid open-world games are missing plus the Developer is constantly updating the game.

I host a server for this game now and develop plugins, I'm really happy with this game. Thanks Nelson.
