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.”

June 24 Update Notes


Yes - you can finally drive the tanks found around PEI and Washington! On PEI you can find a tank at Confederation Bridge, or at the destroyed tunnels on Washington. If you manage to loot some tank shells you can use the tank's turret, but keep an eye out, as you're very exposed in the gunner's seat! Tank missiles are similar to rockets, but travel faster and drop less. The new turret system is also very generic for modders, so features like rear-facing guns on a biplane or missiles on an attack helicopter are possible.

  • Added Tanks. [IDs 120-121]
  • Added Missile. [ID 1302]
  • Added Book/Note. [IDs 1327-1328]
  • Added Hatch. [IDs 1329-1332]

  • Improved cloth buildables to be colorable with flares.
  • Improved shadow draw distance to make objects pop more, but character is wider.

  • Fixed showing player name rather than character name.
  • Fixed barricade placement angle rounding.
  • Fixed pine rampart low LOD using maple material.
  • Fixed filter item showing quality.
  • Fixed slight gap in heights of bridge #1.

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.

Don't listen to the negative reviews, "OH, ITS THE DEVEELOPERS FAULT! BAD COMMUNITY! OH ITS SO BAD!". It isn't the developers fault, it's not all rainbows and sprinkles. Unturned is a amazing game that at first look you might say "minecraft parody, is bad game", but once you play it. You might never leave it. The game is about surviving in a zombie world, not fending of zombies(in multiplayer, zombies are the least of your worries). The game is really good, being made by one guy. Best of all? It's updated every friday.

-Be me
-Unturned newbie, just spawning into server
-Finds myself at a fire station. Picks up gun from dead body.
-Sees someone in the distance. I wave to them.
-They scream in chat "F*CK YOU NOOB"
-They take aim and shoot
-mfw they're a terrible shot with a scope
-I point my gun at them and fire. Headshot.
-Loots the corpse. Continues to hunt them across the map.
-5 kills later, kid says he "has to go to dinner" and with one final "F*CK YOOOOUUUU", he leaves.

9/11 would make kids ragequit again

all in all tho, decent game, has a nice atmosphere and style and the combat is well developed. In the words of a great man, "Hey... that's mildly adequate."

Listen I might have many hours in this game but that does not mean I can recommend it. It used to be good, but let me get into why this game has fallen from it's glory.

1. The developer panders to little kids over veteran players of the games
What I mean by this is little kids will start crying because they died to a weapon and it will get nerfed. There have been constant nerfing of weapons that don't need to be nerfed especially in the case of snipers. The 2 main snipers(Grizzly and Timberwolf) went from 400m to 250m(This is the same distance the assualt rifles were previously) and then from 250 to needing rarer ammo where the boxes hold even less to then going to 300m but ridiculous sway and bullet drop(Though personally I like the drop, and the sway, but I'd still consider them nerfs regardless, especially when you can only hold your breathe for like a second despite being able to hold it in water for much longer((logic, right?)) ) and LOL NERFING SENTRY GUNS BECAUSE OF THE CREATIVE MODE. You should not balance a game around your games creative mode unless the game is primarly a creative mode game. Also, this is basically bb gun simulator due to how weak most of the weapons are.
2. The developer is more focused on adding newer content then fixing game breaking AND immersion breaking bugs, and this has been going on since 3.0. What I mean by this is that there's plenty of bugs, like crashing on start up, crashing in mid game(Has been going on for at least 2 months and inb4 someone says "Well I haven't been getting it" my friends have too especially when playing for a few hours) lockers and crates that you cannot enter because they are busy despite no one even using them and the most notorius one, falling through roofs and floors when you spawn on your bed((Literally has been going on since at least december)
3. Pretty much just KOS everywhere. Why is this? It's because of how young the player base is. You can try to be friendly but it just ends up with a 12 year old trying to hit you with their weapon. There's hand cuffs, but since people have to surrender for them to be put on you have to be able to find someone willing to surrender in the first place, and good luck finding anyone with a weapon and getting them to surrender. Not to mention that the player base is so young that even if you DO manage to team with someone they are incompetent and don't understand the game well enough and you likely won't find anyone with gear to team with because of the age and constant KOS even if you have gear good luck finding a team mate
4. The community.
The community is a double-edged sword. On one hand , there are lots and lots of great modders. On the other hand the rest of the community is toxic and vile and white-knight obvious problems with the game. I could elaborate more, but I think that I coverd the main issues in the kos section. Just beware the forums as well, as I would even describe them as "kos" in some way

There are plenty of good things too but if you have the money and specs, just buy a survival game.

EDIT: Sorry for all the spelling errors, I am fixing it up. I was in a rush. Also going to add more things

600 hours of experience and very well known on the workshop, so I pretty much have seen it all.

Unturned is rather mixed. Most servers follow a pay to win format and are focused on PvP (get lucky to find a gun and kill everyone you meet) or die trying. These servers are trash. However if you join a server without plugins such as TPA and kits, it is completely different. It feels like a survival game more than a FPS. You get to build a base... only to get offline raided, fight off zombies while exploring towns, military bases, and other places. You get a chance to be the best rather than paying for a free gun kit and plane.

But why do I recommend this game? Simple. Besides the current state, it has been improving greatly since what it used to be a long time ago. The community has improved to an extent, the recent addition of bullet drop and scope sway makes sniping require more skill rather than a simple point, click the head and get an instant kill, and the workshops includes mods to suit almost anyone.

The workshop- it's brilliant. Nelson has done a good job with the additions he has made to Unturned, but the workshop has a lot of good content, including a lot of gun and hat skins (which has caused the economy to be similar to CS:GO or TF2) there are maps that can go up to 64 square kms and dwesigned for a lot of gamemodes. There's maps designed for survival similar to Washington/PEI and works well due to it's design, Maps that allow you to race, Maps such as mine (Isle of Wolves) which is based on progression, and of course arenas and maps to try and replicate famous maps such as Chernarus and Dust II. And some modders have added many workshop guns and vehicles too. Want to fire away at a horde of zombies with a minigun while your friend is flying you around on a Hummingbird? Now you can.

The graphics is rather a blocky and simple design. I don't dislike the design, but some people would be put off by it. Nelson has said he will improve it to have graphics that are similar to Firewatch. which I suppose is better, we'll have to find out ourselves. However this simple design makes it seem more like a cartoon than realism, which people could see it relate to games like Minecraft, just with guns.

If you are one who doesn't want to play the game due to factors such as the community, go ahead. But you're missing out.
