Fighting zombies on a bright sunny day is relatively easy. You've got almost infinite visibility in all directions and unless you're completely not paying attention to where you're going chances are you'll be able to spot any meandering shamblers (or other players) from a fair distance away. But as well all know, clear skies all the time aren't exactly realistic in an open world survival game like H1Z1, that is unless the MMO takes place in southern California...
To that end, SOE has released a few new screenshots through Twitter showcasing some additional dynamic weather effects currently being implemented into H1Z1. The screenshots show a stark contrast between your run-of-the-mill bright sunny day and some of H1Z1's more dreary weather conditions including heavy fog, rain and snow. Changes in weather are said to impact gameplay, although to what extent yet is unknown.
As an added bonus, since both H1Z1 and Planetside 2 share a similar version of SOE's in-house Forgelight engine, PS2 will also be getting the weather treatment and it will affect gameplay, although because it's in a future filled with nano technology players probably wont find themselves dying of hypothermia on the battlefield.
H1Z1 is currently on track for an Alpha release through Steam's Early Access "fairly soon" where it will be available for $19.99. Once it's out of Early Access, H1Z1 will be available as a Free-to-Play title.
