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.”

  • Improved shadowstalker audio.
Tweaks:
  • Guns no longer spawn with the safety on.
  • Decreased zoom on shadowstalker scope and increased damage versus all targets.
  • Increased loot density.
  • Increased contrast of midday lighting due to popular request. (Is this better? Let me know.)
Fixes:
  • Fixed air traffic control tower missing navigation data.
  • Fixed default map Devtest set to Canada.
  • Fixed naked militia zombies.

Thanks for reading!

February Roadmap

Hello!

February Roadmap:

February is going to be a polishing month for 3.0 in that a lot of the features are now there, and it's just a matter of building on them to create a bit more new content. This is going to be a bit less strict of a month in that there are less specific goals other than to improve the game by doing things such as:
  • Expand selection of buildables such as stairs, ladders, farms, chests and traps.
  • Fill in the map with more detail, furniture and locations.
  • Implement character specialties and skill trees.
  • Improve the user interface.
  • Boost performance.
  • Better item spawning in multiplayer.
Due to the flexibility of this month feedback is going to be even easier to integrate into the game, so be sure to voice your opinions!

3.6.0.0 Update Notes:

If you're interested in testing out this patch head on over to the Preview branch! You can gain access using the secret passcode "OPERATIONMAPLELEAF" in the Betas tab.

Additions:
  • Added ability to use backspace instead of delete.
  • Added ability to ctrl-delete to remove an entire road.
Improvements:
  • Gold member clothing no longer provides any warmth.
  • Hunger is food, thirst is water and sickness is immunity to be more understandable.
Tweaks:
  • Swapped ghillie hood to hat slot so it provides heat.
  • Reduced delay between zombie inside range and attack.
  • Decreased sample counts of postprocessing. (ambient occlusion, light shafts, etc)
  • Disabled specular shaders, so let me know if you find any besides on the ice.
  • Black and white heightmaps are no longer halved since the vast majority of people have updated.
  • Visions have a 12.5% chance of altering each color channel at the same time.
Fixes:
  • Fixed pants being uncraftable.
  • Fixed node and path tools selecting the opposite and crashing.
  • Fixed pebble texture bleeding.
  • Fixed a few cases of objects misconfigured.
  • Fixed creating levels with the same name.
  • Fixed duplicating items when holding it and taking the container off.
  • Fixed navigation near water.
  • Fixed visually small objects not showing up on map.
  • Fixed water refraction/reflection draw layer distance.
  • Fixed resources generating near edge of material.
  • Fixed zombies cancelling searching when hit repeatedly quickly.
  • Fixed ragdolls to be disabled with physics disabled.
  • Fixed a crash when smoothing terrain.
  • Fixed equipment input missing a patch applied months ago.
  • Fixed map image resolution.
  • Fixed a dumb performance bug with lots of objects. (although obviously large numbers of objects still drain performance)
Keep in mind that a lot of buildings still need furniture, there will probably be quite a few performance issues that need fixing and the item spawns are poorly balanced, but the Canada map is now available to begin testing along with hundreds of new models and a few items. Do not set your expectations too high for now!

Several more locations may be added in the future as well such as a race track, golf course and mine. In the mean time be sure to let me know what you think!

Thanks for reading!

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:

Fortification:
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.

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

Explore:
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.

Bandits:
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.

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

Early Access:
This is the first public release of the game, but new features and content are constantly getting added as a result of community feedback. You can see how far the game has come with the help of the community since the original testing prototype:

Early Access Review
The term 'Free-to-Play' is slapped onto the side of a lot of games nowadays and it rarely lives up to expectations, with many of them carrying the undertone of 'Pay-to-Win'. With Unturned this isn't the case.

The game is a completely free to play zombie survival game, there is an option to pay to upgrade this to a Gold membership however this is purely for aesthetic purposes - Newer/slick UI, extra character model customisations, Gold username displays on the in-game chat, you can also gain access to gold-member-only servers with a few % bonuses like exp and loot but this is a level playing field as you can only play with other Gold members with these bonuses.

I don't wish to give much away about the gameplay but the game is awesome to play with friends and you can set up your own private servers fairly easily.

There are a few bits and pieces that I feel could and most-likely will be improved in the near future:
(There is currently a huge overhaul in development to the game so these points may/may not be valid once the update is live)

  • The crafting system has pretty much zero guidance, and the recipes aren't exactly obvious. I don't like being spoon-fed but Stick + Bolts = Torch didn't occur naturally to me. The wiki contains everything you need to know about crafting.
  • (Only in Player vs Environment) Once you have fortified, armed/equipped yourself, and have a steady income of growing crops the game becomes a lot less challenging - although I still manage to die in the simplest of situations... I would love to see roaming hordes on this game.
  • At present the game only has one map, although the developer (The one developer working on this title) is in the process of creating a new Canada map.
  • Hackers are a bit of a nuisance in online PvP servers.

The above notes are just from my own personal take and experience of the game so far.

These aside, I love the simple, blocky graphics, the open world feel, the insatiable appetite of your character - same goes for the zombies, the weapons and attachments, the survival mechanics, the trust issues, the uneasy silences, the countless naked respawns etc etc.

I would really recommend this game to anyone who enjoys surviving with friends.

Built a house with my friends (Took 5 Hours) and then some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ shot us in the face with a crossbow when we were least expecting it... He proceeded to take all of our crap and destroy the house by the time we got back there was nothing but a moldy carrot.

10/10 would waste 5 hours of my life again.

You know how an Italian chef kisses his fingers and says something in Italian that translates to "A masterpiece" after tasting their own dish? That's how I feel about this game.

I don't really know why I enjoy this game...

The graphics are similar to Minecraft, not particularly impressive but appealing.
The combat is okay.
Sound is minimal but it doesn't feel like anything's missing.
The difficulty is very high at first.
The crafting is not very self explanitory.

I guess I'd classify this as a guilty pleasure. .-.

EDIT:

I have recently learned that this game is undergoing major updates and the update beta shows a ton of promise, fixing the crafting issues and adding tons of new items.
