A post-apocalyptic free-to-play MMO from the makers of EverQuest II and The Matrix Online. Set fifteen years after an initial horrifying outbreak, players must survive against the infected, wild animals, and other survivors.
H1Z1 is an upcoming MMO to be released by Sony Online Entertainment in late 2014 for the PlayStation 4 and Windows.
The game, announced in April 2014, is a zombie apocalypse thriller set in the United States, in which players will have to interact with resources in the world to survive, build shelters and craft weapons. It will be free-to-play through micropayments, though as of April 2014, the way the game will be monetized has not been clearly defined; a public discussion regarding the matter has been initiated by SOE's president on Reddit, alongside another regarding the inclusion of custom servers.
Gameplay emphasizes multi-player cooperation, trading, and team-building. In an interview with Adam Clegg from SOE it was made clear that unlike other zombie MMO games, the main focus will be on surviving against the zombies through team-work with other players, instead of being a player versus player "PVP" environment with a zombie backdrop.
