    I have found this buried in the FAQs on the H1Z1 site

    H1Z1 will be available for purchase through Steam Early Access for $19.99 USD and a second SKU will be $39.99

    I have to say, it looks better than I expected:

    I dunno. I may splurge out. Perhaps will wait to see what the early opinions are like.

    So there is one guy on Earth who actually wanna play H1Z1 ? O_O you've got to explain to me what's the appeal of that game for you, because so far, all the reactions I've seen were along the lines of "yet another zombie survival thing" or "oh a F2P DayZ wannabe"

    I will probably get this, but not until I'm home on Thursday next week. Would be interested to hear form anyone who tries it.

    I liked what DayZ was trying to do, but not how it did it. Hizzy looks somewhat better. But I have to say, after Dead State and State of Decay I'm kinda done with zombie survival as a genre.

    For me it would just be interesting to see the PS2 engine being used for something a bit different and who knows, it could be good! Kind of like Everquest Next. But I'm not interested enough to pay for any of either of them at the moment.

    Yeah AFAIK Day Z and such aren't really an MMO and won't have the size/scale that this game will have. Also I am one of the rare people that hasn't really played zombie survival games that much but has an interest in the concept. Can you build your own stuff in Day Z?

    Apparently you can buy ammo with real money. Can anyone confirm if thats legit info or just the ps2 subreddit talking shit so I know whether this can definitely fuck off or not?

    8) We have made the decision to allow paid for airdrops into the game with things like guns and other things being randomly selected as part of the airdrop.
    From their blog. People are saying that includes ammo. So you sort of can buy ammo.

    Thats almost worse. The old online gambling f2p trick. Pay to win but long and drawn out.

    I'll wait and see if the final product is less cynical than it sounds right now.

    There's a post with some post-hoc rationalisation, saying they'll tone down the chance of guns etc and that the plane doing the drop is really slow and obvious so anyone can in fact find the drop and take it/kill you before you get it, but yeah, it sounds a bit shitty.

    What's insane to me is how much this game is already more popular than PS2 ever was, when PS2 as a concept is way more unique and groundbreaking.

    I watched the stream and it looks interesting. But given SOE and that this seems very much P2W, I'll have to sell a kidney to afford anything useful.
