Introduction to H1Z1

01/31/2018

H1Z1 is a battle royale game developed and published by Daybreak Game Company. The studio was founded in 1997 as Sony Online Entertainment and was part of Sony. It is primarily known for the Everquest and Everquest II MMORPGs. In 2015, Sony sold the studio to Columbus Nova who changed the name to Daybreak Game Company. H1Z1's history began in 2015 as well. It started out as a more ambitious project then it was split into two games. One of them is called Just Survive and the other (formerly known as King of the Hill) went back to the original name, H1Z1. 
The game creators label it as a “single elimination massive arena shooter”. Most players and the press call it a battle royale game because of the gameplay that requires players to fight each other until only one or a team is left alive. The 100 square kilometer battle map is made to accommodate 150 players. All of them are parachuted on the battlefield without any equipment. They must find equipment to get ready for PvP battles. The equipment includes weapons, items, and vehicles. At the beginning of the match players can normally find it by scavenging. As the timer advances, the situation becomes more and more dangerous. The generously sized initial map starts to become smaller. A lethal gas is released concentrating players in safe zones. The gas doesn't kill on the spot, however, players need to get out of it as soon as possible. The sirens let players know that a gas discharge is about to happen. Eventually, all remaining players are gathered in a relatively small area and the mayhem begins. H1Z1 has a “last man standing” victory condition so the competition is fierce. 
The game is in early access and can be bought on Steam for $20. Buyers pay different price depending on their location. A crate system that allows players to get customization items is available. A tournament with a total prize pool of $50,000 was held in 2017. U7buy will start to offer players H1Z1 products in future, we will keep you posted with H1Z1 news, same as The Elder Scrolls Online Items information.
