SOE continues unveiling new details surrounding their upcoming zombie survival MMO H1Z1 at a rapid pace. While only a teaser site is currently available, SOE has already released large amounts of details regarding ingame features and monitezation plans through social media outlets such as Reddit, largely thanks to John Smedley, whose taken it upon himself to promote the devs absolute transparency during development.
In line with this theme, SOE is in the process of livestreaming a full 12 hours of H1Z1 related content through their official H1Z1 Twitch page. The stream, which began at 9 a.m. PDT this morning (roughly 6 hours ago) will continue until 9 p.m. and has already featured interactive community Q/A sessions accompanied by tours of the dev office, with smatterings of H1Z1 gameplay sprinkled throughout. Most recently, the stream featured a developer interview which shed some light on how players leave “heat signatures”, leading zombies to their vicinity based on the players current actions.
H1Z1 is poised to enter Steam Early Access next month, with players able to purchase entry into the alpha for $20.00.
