Daybreak Game Company’s zombie survival MMO H1Z1: Just Survive has changed its name, it is now Just Survive. It will feature an entirely new map and lore, formally breaking from H1Z1 and it’s universe.
“A new narrative has been established, separating Just Survive from the H1Z1 universe. Just Survive’s rebranding and content update represents the development team’s evolved vision for the game and lays the foundation for future updates in the months to come,” — Daybreak Press Release
Just Survive is also getting an entirely new map. Titled Badwater Canyon, which is being rolled out over time. A new Stronghold system is also being introduced. Daybreak says, “Players can build robust structures and fortify them with an array of defenses and traps to fend off coordinated attacks,”
“Challenging players with opportunities to attack and defend, Strongholds encourage creative problem solving. In addition, these bases can be customized by players, to make their in-game homes unique.”
Weapons have been completely rebuilt from scratch, each one fine tuned to “look and feel unique”, melee combat was also improved with a new hit registration system and attack animation.
H1Z1 is no stranger to change. It started as zombie survival MMO H1Z1, then it split in to two games, H1Z1: Just Survive and H1Z1: King Of The Kill. After this latest change there will only be one H1Z1 game, H1Z1: King Of The Kill. Bonus fun fact, H1Z1: King Of The Kill doesn’t actually have any zombies in it.
