Here’s a quick guide on how to buy the early access for H1Z1

H1Z1 was released last January 15, 2015 on Steam as an early access game. It is an open-world, zombie survival game like no other! It was developed and published by Sony Online Entertainment.

Fair warning though. The IP is still on early access (or EA) so expect to encounter lots of bugs, glitches and in some cases, server downtime for a few hours or so.

Check out this comment by?RonaldMcDonaldZ?on H1Z1 Reddit thread:

“I dont think anyone wants to spend 10 hours searching and only finding goggles and a few water bottles. And also anything you manage build (if you’re lucky enough to have found a crowbar that lasts 5 mins because of durability, or some scrap metal) will just be getting hopefully wiped when the dupe bug is fixed.

About the only thing, enjoyable to do is pvp on a BR server. Unfortunately, thats bugged as well, the toxic cloud doesnt always harm players, players fall through the map when coming down in the parachute, and most importantly the game has no ending/no reward. But hey its free and gives us something to do.

Hope they fix these problems with a patch today.”
