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.”

April 26 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.

This update adds the ability to build on your vehicles!

Vehicle storage is now only limited by how unstable you want your vehicle to become! This upgrade required tons of changes to everything related to building which means there are quite likely some issues, so be sure to report them!


  • Added chainsaw. (ID 490)
  • Added asset classes for more item types so properties such as storage size, trap damage and growth time are configurable.
  • Added seperate singleplayer saves for different characters. Your first character will have the previous singleplayer world.
  • Added ability to combine ammo boxes of the same type together.
  • Improved menu and game dashboard understandability a bit.
  • Improved hitboxes on many vehicles to better fit building on them.
  • Improved crafting to show total amount of crafted ammo.
  • Tweaked smoothness of movement on server.
  • Tweaked ambulance turning radius a bit higher.
  • Tweaked boost cost a bit higher.
  • Tweaked gun spawn rates a bit lower.
  • Fixed equipping items as a passenger in singleplayer and swapping back to the driver's seat wrecking vehicle physics.
  • Fixed not being able to craft rifle clips.
  • Fixed some spots not to go to.
  • Fixed repeated melee impact.
  • Fixed bow blueprints to require rope.
  • Fixed missing aid animations on pill items.
  • Fixed missing polygon on the bottom of crates.
Various ways of implementing animals were also tested. There is some added complication compared to 2.0 now that the navigation data does not cover the entire map for performance reasons, but it looks like hunting will make its way in eventually.

Keep in mind that electrical items only power others that are on or not on a vehicle the same way as themself, as in a generator on a vehicle will only power lights on that vehicle but not ones on the ground.

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:

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 trees and rocks, 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:
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:

  • Spend 10 hours trying to find your friend on the map.
  • He dies from thirst as we see eachother.
  • Finally find him again then build a base.
  • Discover 3.0 version after its release months ago.
  • Switch to 3.0 then get stacked while your friend still dies from thirst...
  • Build another base, but bigger and better.
  • Discover custom maps.
  • Switch to that.
  • Build yet another base.
  • Install 7 mods without testing them.
  • Whole map gets flooded with water, base is gone, items gone, no backup.
  • Realize you've wasted 60 hours of your life...

Well, where do I begin?
This game is pure Heaven. I mean this game first came out in Roblox, and then made a debut on steam. That’s how awesome this game is. It’s a combination between DayZ and Minecraft, the two best games in the world,

-It has the freedom of creativity of a Minecraft game

-And the gruesome objective to survive with friends as DayZ

I'd point out that this game dame DOES have some flaws, as it is having problems with Hacking, glitches, and so on. But look at battlefield 4 when it first came out, that game is BROKEN when it first set out, but look at it now. It’s one of the biggest FPS games in the world. Unturned may have been having problems with hackers, but that's common for MMO games. That is why Unturned’s developer, Nelson Sexton has minimized that.

Overall, this game is Unique and doesn’t get any better than this. It’s free, it’s great, it’s f*ckin amazing

99/100 would play

-Great game! I personally like playing this with friends hand having a laugh. game can be a bit hard when playing on a server, but it will greatly help some of you learn to adapt quickly!

-Setbacks to gaming. I play this on windows, yet I also run linux as well (don't ask why I run two platforms). It would be great if you had a linux platform for this game!

It's kinda small, but it's becoming a well work-in-progress. The testing version unlocked by the code OPERATIONMAPLELEAF is actually kinda fun. I love the physics engine in that version, especially when dead zombies suddenly fly to the moon. I just like the game for how it's designed, and sometimes it gets my explorative nature going. Especially that one barricaded house. I made a little idea of using a vehicle to get into a window of that one. But I just think the game is a little piece of fun to get into from time to time, even though it's nothing really too big yet, it seems to be getting to there.

2.0 Unturned:
Many people are turned off by the simple graphics and the 'free to play' label.
I thoroughly enjoyed this game both as a player, and as an admin on two busy servers (though I don't recommend the admin route if you want to enjoy the game without the stress of dealing with many issues).
EDIT: Note that the servers I moderated are now unavailable.
Like many have said before me, it's almost like a DayZ and Minecraft combination. You can build a base and defend yourself from the infected, as well as the other humans. Zombies are not a threat in the slightest. They are easy to kill, easy to outrun, and it's the players you need to worry about. The community largely consists of younger gamers who like to KOS and/or scream "HACKER" at anyone who kills them. I have, however, met a lot of really lovely people.
One thing to note is the abundance of hackers. Since it's super easy to cheat in Unturned, I recommend that you find servers that are whitelisted or heavily monitored by admins.

It's fun, but beware of hackers.


3.0 Unturned:
I have not devoted nearly as much time to this as I have the older version.
From what I've seen, the map is much larger and the zombies are a bit more challenging.
The inventory system has changed to look more like the DayZ system.
I can't say much, as I have not played it a lot.


All in all, I prefer 2.0 over 3.0, but it is an enjoyable game nonetheless (and perhaps I will really like the final release).
Most of my friends share the same opinion, and have sadly abandoned the game.

There's nothing to lose but a bit of time, so grab a few friends and give it a try.

I like the first update version best, coz of hunting animals, and items grouped in your inventory, not items separately as in the latest update. The most irritating thing is multiplayer for it is laggy as hell, and z-s kill you 5 meters away from you, so no proper pvp yet =/

Told a kid he wasn't old enough to make a Steam account without his parents permission and he said he never got it. Continued to teleport him to me and kill him because of this. I kept telling he should the Steam rules before signing up and he did not know what the Steam rules were. Told him he should VAC banned for that. Proceeded to ban him for reason "Mac User" permanatly. An admin from another server joins my server and asks if we banned someone for not being old enough for Steam according to the Steam rules. We tell him yes and he says "If you ever misinform someone ever again I'll make sure you never come on my Cyro-something server" He leaves. A few weeks later I decide to join this Cyro-something server. I didn't get recognized and there were people getting mad at the admins on that server so yeah there's that. 48/8000

TL;DR - Don't buy this game. The mod will provide you with a better experience.

DayZ is probably the biggest example of a cashgrab I've ever seen on Steam Early Access. As the game has now been in development since its release date back in December 2013, the developers have made tens of millions of dollars off the 3 million copies sold (since January 2015). Many people have asked what happened to all this money: Only rumors remain... (I could go on a rant about how Dean Rocket stole all the money for himself and is now living in a cozy mansion but I digress). Please don't get the wrong idea. I really enjoy DayZ as a game. What infuriates me, however, is the fact that this game has so much potential but was all squandered with the lack of updates, fixes and news from the surprisingly large development team. In the time that I'm writing this review (April 2015), it has been just under two years since the game's release (excluding the many months of development beforehand as well as the Closed Alpha stages - dating all the way back to May 2013 and even earlier) and very little improvements have been made; thus, the game remains in Alpha despite the many deadlines in which the game would move into Beta and even release, only to be delayed every quarter of the year.

My personal experience with the game has been an ever-worsening nightmare. With some history playing the DayZ mod and the many variants of it (Epoch, Overpoch, the whole lot) on ArmA 2, I simply just had to purchase the game only a few months after release with the mindset that it would be a great game by the end of the year, especially with the videos being posted left and right showcasing the new features and potential that it would be superior to the mod in every single way. Boy, was I wrong.

The main issue that was supposed to be fixed many months ago but has been pushed back was the optimization of the game. I cannot account for anyone else when I say that you require a NASA supercomputer to run this game. This is the main area where DayZ shows its potential: The game has gorgeous visuals on maximum graphic settings. The reality of this is that the majority of people that play the game have to run it on the lowest settings due to poor optimization and use of an outdated engine that fully renders the entire map all at once for some reason.

The game struggles even with the most basic functions such as moving, vaulting, equipping weapons and such. Often times, I would die because of how glitchy the ladders and staircases in the game are. Inventory management is a drag and does not add any realism or immersion. Also, it is important to mention that the game presents a very poor atmosphere : Apart from the few piles of debris (I'm talking about the infamous tossed-out laundry machine) and the building with the plane crash located at Cherno, all the major cities in the game look like they were built yesterday. The developers could have easily made vast improvements rather than just ripping the map off of the mod and just modifying the spawn points and adding a few cities. Other than the major cities, many of the small villages in the map are recycled and reused many times. It's easy to get lost in the map because of this. The use of an online map would deter this but, at the same time, remove what little immersion remains.

One large factor which was lacking in the standalone game but had a strong presence in the mod was vehicles . At this time, there are only two vehicles in the game which are very similar: Both are military transport and they look visually similar, the only difference is the number of seats they provide. Due to the size of Chernaurus+, it would be less of a hassle to travel by vehicle rather than spending hours sprinting to a location. A bicycle at the very least could have been added.

I had high hopes for this game after its release. Unfortunately, the game does not deliver what it promised. The developers know this but yet continue to release very small updates every now and then to give us players the illusion that changes are being made in the game. In all honesty, there is no hope for the game. With all major fixes being constantly delayed, it is doubtful that this game will exit Alpha. Please save your money and play the mod if you want a good experience. Thank you.

Oh wait, wrong game lol. k get Unturned! 10/10

A very, good quality, addictive game. And there is almost NOTHING you cant do! Crafting is precise and very in depth, and can make minecraft ashamed. Never thought i'd say that! Top notch, even in single player, Even when free! Only thing is, connecting to servers can be a little comlpicated and awkward to do. Apart from this, spot on!

Gameplay will probably take a while to get used to, and statring to craft will blow your mind, but with a little help from the wiki, nothing poses a majour problem.
