The Zombie Apocalypse, Just Like You’ve Always Wanted

By eremeticskeptic11-04-2014

Hopefully, this virtual substitute will be enough to make the people who espouse that they “wish a zombie apocalypse would happen” shut up. It’s unfortunate enough that anybody would say that in the first place (as well as ignorant, considering most that mention it would probably have their doughy flesh torn into within the first 24 hours of an outbreak), but such is life in a society now obsessed with monsters.

H1Z1 is an MMO that is the zombie apocalypse. You literally just take on the role of a survivor in a zombie filled world along with other players doing the same thing. The developer is proud to note that in his game, you have the ability to set environment objects on fire to defend yourself, as well as use to light up the night. It will get dark then, the developer mentioned, and there will be other players and zombies waiting to attack you for one reason or another – the latter, for supplies (or flesh), and the second, definitely flesh.

You can watch a full interview, complete with gameplay footage, above in order to get all the juicy little details straight from the horse’s mouth. I personally think zombies are getting a little beat into the ground, but the MMO aspect makes this a bit fresh, at least. Instead of NPCs, you have real people reacting as they will to your presence and forming alliances, et cetera to get by in a world filled with zombies. That’s innovative, I’ll give it that. The developer says it will be available for play “very soon”, so it’ll be interesting to see how the execution goes.
