I have never participated in one of the +Steam
early access games before, not have I ever played a survival game before like #H1Z1
. Has been quiet a fun 8 hours so far. If you do now know of it H1Z1 is a new early acces game from +Sony Online Entertainment [Official]
. The game is a post apocalyptic, zombie survival game.
The game seems pretty decent to me considering it is alpha. Some very obvious bugs, but with a lot of them the devs are very responsive. Patches seem to be rolling out pretty frequently.
I am only playing PvE right now, but even there I can see the real benefit of putting together a group to play with. This game can be done solo, but you are so limited in what you can carry that it takes a long while to build up the needed resources to build a base. And then you have the issue of defending it from looters.
I am glad they are fixing the hunger/thirst issues which caused you to go hungry super quick. Even still, getting food and water is not a challenge in the game I think. Grab berries until you can make a bow. Get two or three bottles of water and build a bow drill to light fires. It does not take much time to discover these things and once you can hunt and clean water reliably you are in good shape. Just takes some practice, kind of like learning how to survive your first night in Minecraft way back when.
Overall, it is a fun game. Looking forward to seeing what they can add. The game needs a way to fish, it would be awesome if you could find climbable trees and make small tree houses.
If you are playing solo, or with a small team and can use another let me know.
