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 19 Update Notes

Russia Map:

The map you've all been waiting for is finally here - Russia is now available to play!

Russia is Unturned's new largest map clocking in at 4x the size of PEI/Washington/Yukon giving you tons of room for bases and exploration, and through its tiered loot progression provides an interesting blend between survival and combat. Many of the new gameplay features from the past couple months have been designed with this map in mind as well, for example the best items are hidden away in the new radioactive deadzones giving reason to loot the lower portions of the map for gasmasks/filters.

It's also been a bit of an experiment: until now Unturned's development has been entirely solo, but for this project I worked together with several community members popular for their workshop submissions to help on the map. This has proven a very interesting experience, and in the near future I'll be putting together documentation/tips/rules based on what I learned through the process so that this can be expanded to more community-created updates!

Thanks to Justin "Gamez2much" Morton and Mitch "Sketches" Wheaton for their work on the map itself, Alex "Rain" Stoyanov for creating many of the new driveable vehicles and Amanda "Mooki2much" Hubler for several objects/houses. If you are enjoying the map and would like to support these creators consider checking out the new Russia Mystery Box!

View Russia Map Mystery Box

Rather than requiring a key to open, this mystery box is purchaseable for the same price as a key (the proceeds of which are split with the creators) and will probably remain on the stockpile page unlike the normal dropped mystery boxes. On that note: the Hot Mystery Box has been removed from drops and replaced with the Arms Shipment Mystery Box which contains skins for all of the new guns introduced in the Arms Shipment updates!

Update Notes:

  • Added Russia map and associated content.
  • Added Russia Map Mystery Box.
  • Added Arms Shipment Mystery Box.
  • Added effect nodes for different ambient sounds/lighting.
  • Added Precision Charge. [ID 1393]
  • Tweaked to give XP for healing other players.
  • Fixed object power search while loading on server.
  • Fixed workshop to show preview warning with >1MB image rather than failed to submit.
  • Fixed crafting magazines not showing ammo total.
  • Fixed minigun barrel spin not visible to other players in multiplayer.
  • Fixed not playing out of ammo click noise.
  • Fixed some bugs with attachments and skins toggle.
  • Fixed Instinctive Timberwolf skin attachment color.
Note: The creator of Rocket mod (Sven) would like all Rocket server hosters/admins to know that kicking suspect accounts is now enabled by default, but can be disabled in the Rocket config.

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.

Roomscale VR Support:

Unturned's level editor now supports the Vive! You can build the visuals of your maps using motion controllers with modes that provide the same functionality as the desktop editor, along with some special abilities like throwing objects. For non-visuals elements of the level such as data entry, spawn management or navigation baking the desktop editor is still required.

I beat a guy to death with a flashlight, flew a helicopter into a lighthouse, mugged some dude for his pants, drove a tank i found around the city for a bit, traveled to Russia, got high off glue, shot some guy with a 50 cal cause he looked at me funny, hid in a tree for a while, and then jumped down and beat another man to death with the flashlight.

Then i went home and played unturned, great game!

If your looking for a review on this game you've come to the wrong place, but if your looking for an outstanding lemon bars recipe you've come to the right place.

1) 2 cups Flour
2) 1/2 cup Sugar
3) 1/4 teaspoon Salt
4) 2 sticks (1 Cup) Salted Butter, Cut Into Small Cubes
5) Filling
6) 1-1/2 cup Sugar
7) 1/4 cup Flour
8) 4 whole Large Eggs
9) Zest And Juice Of 4 Medium-sized Lemons
10) Powdered Sugar, For Sifting


1. For the crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-by-13-inch pan with butter.

2. Stir together the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the butter to the bowl and use a pastry cutter to cut it all together until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Press into the prepared pan and bake until golden around the edges, about 20 minutes.

3. For the filling: Stir together the sugar and flour. Crack in the eggs and whisk to combine. Add the lemon zest and juice and mix until combined. Pour over the crust and bake about 20 minutes.

4. Allow to cool in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours, then sift powdered sugar over the top before cutting into squares.

(Use an 8 x 10 pan if you'd like the layers to be a little thicker.)

My story and experience.
1 of my first friends on steam asked me to play this and host a server.

Me being nice, I did this.

Non pvp server is made
We play

My friend takes everything in site even if I see it first and Im going to get it.

I ignore this even though its rude. Just us on server.

Whenever I start to die my friend "helps" me find food etc but eats it or uses it and says he didnt find much. I know hes lying.

I found a sleeping bad. No more spawning randomly everywhere for me.

My friend gets jealous and then proceeds to tell me I can use admin controls to give him 1.

I tell him no because Ive been playing fair and square so he has to too.

He gets all butthurt and whines nonstop everytime he dies now.

Keeps bringing up admin commands to give him stuff.

I ban him.

I quit the game.

12/10 would ban cry baby anytime for being cry baby.

So let me preface this review by stating that I have followed the development of this game from its VERY EARLY ALPHA STAGES. I played this game when it was a mere shadow of its former state, and while many changes have been made to the game, the overall game itself at its core is the same. However, this is a review of it's current state as of 8/19/2016 (The Release of the Russia Map) And here are my thoughts

So for anyone that didn't know this is a game being developed by one guy and I must say, what he's done with it is really damn impressive and he deserves praise! Unturned has achieved things as a free to play game that games like H1Z1, DayZ Standalone, Rust, and others like it have yet to achieve and all of those games require a purchase. One thing I must praise this game for is its FTP model. It is 100% Free to Play. There are no paywalls, timers, buffs for buying into the game, or anything of the like. It's reasons like this that I actually bought into this game years ago to support its development. It was and still is only 5 bucks and while it doesn't necessarily grant you a whole ton of stuff (Extra Hud Customization, Access to Gold Tier servers, and some cosmetic items) I still don't regret my purchase in the slightest. This is a damn good game that has evolved into something that resembles Arma or the DayZ mod rather than something like H1Z1.

So why am I downvoting this game? After all I certainly have enough hours in it and I have nothing but praise to give to the game. Well....this game as of late has had some....problems. Specifically with the way that servers are being handled and also with some gameplay elements that have been added that really make no sense.

My biggest problem with this game is the way it handles servers....or rather the community that runs the servers. This game is meant to be played in a server with a medium to high tier population if you ask me. It adds tension knowing that other players could be around and you're all struggling for survival in a large landspace. The problem however deals with the servers themselves. The community has effectively turned Unturned into an FPS rather than the survival game it used to be. You will be hard pressed to find a server these days that doesn't feature map teleportation, kits that you spawn in with that kill the purpose of ya know....surviving, and other features like this that really just make the game an FPS played on a big map. If you do manage to find a reasonable server with a Vanilla ruleset 9/10 times it will be run by abusive admins who have sealed off spots with high tier loot and abuse their powers to the extreme.

It's a damn shame this game doesn't have some form of official servers at this point because the community is becoming cancerous to players that want to play the game as it was intended. I got on today to play the newly released Russia Map (Which is spectacular btw) and once again the server issue persisits and it has been here for the last 3 months now and it's just getting worse. It really sucks all the fun and playability out of the game. I honestly love this game, it's the one Early Access game I will support hands down, but at this point I will leave the review negative until they fix the glaring issue with its servers. I would love nothing more than to change this to a positive when the issue is resolved!

If the server issues are resolved I highly encourage you to hop in the game and give it a try for yourself. It's got a great crafting system, some rather advanced gun physics compared to other games in it's genre, and while its building system could use some work it is still pretty fun. I will continue to check in on Unturned periodically in the hopes that the server issue is resolved.

Thanks for reading and if you've played, what are your thoughts? Do you agree, disagree, think I'm a ♥♥♥♥ing pleb that needs to git good? I'm curious. Leave a comment and I'll definitely get back to you on it if you're interested.
