One game you may have missed from last month’s E3 is H1Z1, Sony Online Entertainment’s take on the crafting survival MMO genre. During the event the development team showed off their latest build, as seen below in an official demo lead by designer, Jimmy Whisenhunt.
Though far from done, it’s coming along nicely and looks way better than the first gameplay reels that were published online. The demo goes through H1Z1’s basic systems including players versus environment combat, gathering materials, crafting, and building settlements.
The video also shows off a dynamic weather cycle and other detailed systems. As Whisenhunt explains, the wet and cold effects players’ in-game status as well as added decoration and effects to the environment.
Sony Online Entertainment is currently working to bring H1Z1 to Steam Early Access. A PlayStation 4 version is also being developed.
