Daybreak Games’ H1Z1 has officially split into two distinct titles on PC through Steam Early Access: the fight-to-the-death spectacle H1Z1: King of the Kill and open world zombie survival game H1Z1: Just Survive. Both products will continue to exist within the overarching H1Z1 universe, but with independent development teams and content milestones.
H1Z1: King of the Kill is a high-intensity online multiplayer shooter that will specialize in large-scale, arena-style, last-person-standing grudge matches across a variety of new and evolving game modes, including fan-favorite PLAYERUNKNOWN’s Battle Royale. It is expected to officially release out of Early Access on PC, the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One this summer.
Meanwhile, H1Z1: Just Survive captures and refines the core open world survival adventure experience that first launched H1Z1. After the catastrophic H1Z1 zombie virus decimates mankind, players must scavenge resources, craft gear, and build and defend their shelters to stay alive against the shambling horrors of the undead and the last, cutthroat vestiges of humanity. Just Survive will remain in Steam Early Access through the end of 2016.
H1Z1: King of the Kill and H1Z1: Just Survive are now both available on PC via Steam Early Access for $19.99 USD each. Anyone who purchased H1Z1 on or before Feb. 16 will see both King of the Kill and Just Survive in their Steam library.
