Daybreak have announced that zombie survival horror game H1Z1 will be split in to two parts, both of which have dumped the free-to-play model and will cost $19.99 each on PC. The first part, H1Z1: Just Survive is the original game with crafting and zombies, whilst H1Z1: King of the Kill is a multiplayer PvP shooter.
“King of the Kill is being developed as a fast-paced shooter that will be comprised of multiple fight-to-the-death game modes, including Battle Royale,” explained Greg Henninger, Daybreak Community Manager. “Players will compete in large-scale chaotic PvP spectacles of skill, wit, and a little luck, where everyone must fight to the death to stand alone at the top of the podium.”
King of the Kill will be launching on consoles this summer, Daybreak are concentrating on that, rather than Just Survive forPlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
I’m not sure if consoles need another PvP shooter, especially one running on an MMO engine, and even less so considering Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps, a multiplayer PvP shooter with zombies, will beat it to the start line.
