Today Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) officially announced H1Z1 is coming to the PlayStation 4 with details and some fresh video footage below!
To quote: "Though Sony Online Entertainment has stated multiple times already that they were planning on bringing it to the PlayStation 4. Today, the studio confirmed that that will indeed be the case.
John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment, confirmed the news during yesterday’s SOE Live. Along with this announcement, they also held a Survival Challenge for attendees, showing off over an hour of fresh gameplay footage."
For those unaware: The game is a zombie apocalypse thriller set in the United States, in which players will have to interact with resources in the world to survive, build shelters and craft weapons.
It will be free-to-play through micropayments, though as of April 2014, the way the game will be monetized has not been clearly defined; a public discussion regarding the matter has been initiated by SOE's president on Reddit, alongside another regarding the inclusion of custom servers.
Gameplay emphasizes multi-player cooperation, trading, and team-building. In an interview with Adam Clegg from SOE it was made clear that unlike other zombie MMO games, the main focus will be on surviving against the zombies through team-work with other players, instead of being a player versus player "PVP" environment with a zombie backdrop.
