H1Z1 Goes Into Early Access January 15
True to his word, Sony Online Entertainment President John Smedley today spilled the beans on H1Z1's early access date and other sundry details. He did so via the H1Z1 subreddit, a.k.a. SOE's "other" official website. The date: January 15, 2015.
While Smedley said that the game took longer than anticipated because of the dev team's desire to get it as polished as possible, he stressed that it would still be an early access, with all that entails:
It's everything Early Access should be - a fun and compelling game that isn't finished. Our goal is to have you help us finish it and have it be a game we can build a large community in over time.
There will be two packages sold at the early access launch: a $19.99 "basic" deal that gets you into the game and a more expensive package that gives you access to different game mode servers and other to-be-announced perks.
A live Q&A with the dev team is planned for 3:30 PST (6:30 EST) on the official H1Z1 channel, and we'll update this post with any major details.
