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.”

3.8.8.0 Update Notes

Hello!

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 new attachment interface. (Feedback?)
  • Added outlines and backdrops to item icons.
  • Added ping sorting to the in-game server list.
  • Added new player storage systems.
  • Added progress bars to generators and plants.
  • Added blocking to wells and waterwheels to prevent getting trapped.
  • Added minimum time to respawn to mega zombies.
  • Added [insert] to refresh bundles for people making custom content to easily test.
Improvements:
  • Improved attachments search to not show duplicates.
  • Improved life interface to not show when attaching.
  • Improved terrain in the South East.
  • Improved health/etc bar system behind the scenes.
  • Improved inventory slot icons.
Tweaks:
  • Tweaked maximum number of mega zombies to 2.
  • Tweaked default vehicle counts a bit lower.
Fixes:
  • Fixed exiting vehicles in garages.
  • Fixed large packets getting sent incorrectly.
  • Fixed missing door slot on House #3.
  • Fixed a crash when reading key from localization.
  • Fixed a crash when loading.
  • Fixed crossbow tactical position.
Keep an eye out for weird server bugs. Due to the player savedata changes there will likely be a ton of issues and some (should be only inventory, otherwise bug) was lost although you can recover it if you want, but on the upside server performance should be a lot better.

Going off of the polls from yesterday it looks like the vast majority of you guys play multiplayer with about half preferring the cooperative aspect. Going forward hopefully this can be improved to have better networking and support for working together more!

Thanks for reading!

I'd appreciate it if you provided some feedback on the following polls to help judge what part of the game is currently most popular and what needs to be worked on the most:
http://strawpoll.me/3961314
http://strawpoll.me/3961321
http://strawpoll.me/3961327
(Don't worry, co-op and multiplayer will both be counted as network focus however it will change what aspect of it is most important to you.)

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:

Ok, ok, I know what you are thinking, "this games is just a stupid copie of Minecraft, not worth it". Well let me just say, your wrong. This is the best game I have played with friends. It is basicaly a free (totally amazing) version of dayZ. The map is huge and the 3.0 version is so much better. here is a story of what happened when I first got the game.

I woke up stranded on a island with nothing at all. I found some pants and a Tshirt and set off. I searched and searched for a while untill I found a Glock stashed under a bed, and some food in the kitchen. I set off. I killed zombies as I went and eventually found another player. I thought he was friendly but it ended up otherwise. he pulled a revolver on me and said to hand over my stuff. I figured I had to move fast. I punched the guy in the face which he didn't expect and I ran behind a car. I checked my Glock, which only had two bullets. I knew I had to get at least two head-shots. I jumped on the car and shot and heard a load bang coming from his direction. I looked down and I was hit right on my Tshirt but I had jerked the trigger when I shot and hit him in the foot. I thought I was a dead man when suddenly I heard a siren. I looked at the road and saw a police speeding down the road. When he got out he said to drop our weapons, which I did without further promting. The robber on the other hand was quick to shoot at the officer. The cop ran behind his car and I knew it was all over when I saw him pull from his pack a TimberWolf with a x7 scope and silencer. Even though I knew he wasn't aiming at me I still hit the floor. When it was all over the police brought me to headquarters and checked me over. Once I was all fixed up he let me go with an extra revolver.

Hope this was helpful I rate this game a 10/10

Early Access Review
The map is to small. That is why you cant play hero. There is no forest, there is not place to hide. Everywere is a open space and you can't avoid that. I dont want to kill on sight. But I cant stay away from hostile players because the map is so small and lacking in shelter that you cant walk around the player and end up in the open. Also freshspawns (and the 4 year olds who kill) them are everywere. There is no designated spawn points, freshspawns just appear everywere. And because they dont even have clothes on there back they do stupid things. They try to punch you even when you clearly are going to win. Why? To piss you off because regaining health is harder than a brick wall. You cant even eat food to gain the tineist bit of health so your pretty mutch screwed. This story sums up the community that I have seen:

I was a fresh spawn. wearing only some pants I found and a hoodie. I met a freindly freshspawn who was cheking the houses on the other side of the street when a geared player carrying guns showed up. He spotted my freind but not me so I ducked onto a house to avoid his line of sight. As soon as I entered the house I spotted a steak knife on the floor and picked it up. The attacker was using a sniper at about 3 meters and didnt kill my freind yet. So I ran onto the street and started stabbing him, buying my freind time to scramble away. He didnt have time to react and was killed after my third stab. Blood on my hands I watched as his body lay bleeding with his gear laying around him. HE WAS LOADED. 5 guns, a HUGE backback and food enough to last a hurricane. I took what I could before I was caught in the middle of the street and ran to the hill nearby. While sorting quickly through the items my "freind" apeared before the body of our attacker. He picked up a gun i left there, and shot me 3 times.

I hate humans.

What else can I say?

2.0 Unturned:
+ Easy to start off if you know what to do, you may die a few times, but it's worth it, because in the end, you'd have good stuff and basically "beat the game" in 2 weeks.

3.0 Unturned:
+ If you "beat the game" for the 2.0 version, this version is a joke. You get everything you need fast, but in 1 hour instead of 2 weeks. That's how easy it is.

+ Apparently Nelson plays TF2 as well, if you know what I mean, that means you found the secret item :)

Overall, excellent game, but too easy for anyone that has common sense, 10/10 will play agian xD

Kill a multitude of squeaking little kids, drink moldy milk to grow some hair on your chest and plant land-mines up in people's bums when they aren't looking.

I think this is a fun and chalenging game. its hard to get the hang of killing off the undead, but once you found a gun and ammo theirs no stoping you! I would recommend this game to people who like a realistic twist to a game, food and water are esential, and run out fast, so keep on your toes while playing this game. so if you love surviveing, and killing the undead, this may be the game for you. its also not only about collecting items, you can chop down trees, get wood and build a fort even, or simply roam the battered streets. one tip though, the undead will try to attack from the side, they will charge you, then turn, so you have to turn in that direction as well to hit them, the smart little buggers.

P.S. if i spelled anything incorectlly, its because it' 3:00 am, time for a crabby patty! (sorry, i had to make the refrence. :P )
