H1Z1 Will Be Split Into Two Games
In a truly surprising article, Daybreak, the developers of H1Z1, announced that the title will be split into two "different" games on February 17th.
The first one, H1Z1: Just Survive, will place its focus on the persistent open-world survival aspect, with scavenging, crafting, and bases will be at the core of the gameplay.
The second one, H1Z1: King of the Kill, will be more of an arena version of the game, with multiple game modes including a Battle Royale.
Both games will possess a team dedicated to their development, which should bring interesting results. It is also good to note that owners of H1Z1 will obtain a copy of each game on February 17th, and that the crates, keys and items they've accumulated will be transferred and duplicated to both games.
Both games, still in Early Access, will be available for $19.99 on February 17th. Finally, for those of you that still had doubts, the developers also confirmed that they currently have no plans to release either H1Z1 games with a Free-to-Play model.
