H1Z1: Just Survive Updates Its Name, Introduces New Weapons, Armors, and More (VIDEO)
MMO zombie game H1Z1: Just Survive is officially getting a name change, going live alongside a massive update that adds a significant amount of new content. It has been revealed that the game going forward will simply be called Just Survive, which is publisher Daybreak’s attempt at separating the title from the rest of the H1Z1 universe. The update also introduces a new world map called Badwater Canyon and is available to play right now. The new map can be seen in the update trailer below:
According to Daybreak, Badwater Canyon is “designed with multiple styles of gameplay in mind” and will feature “targeted loot distribution, strategic verticality, [and] exploration opportunities.” It replaces the game’s original one and is currently available to play, though different regions will be implemented in phases. Featured in the new map is the brand new ‘Stronghold’ feature. By using the new addition, players can “build robust structures and fortify them with an array of defenses and traps to fend off coordinated attacks.”
Opposing players can also attack player Strongholds, which will initiate a “Stronghold raid”. Players can purchase plots with the in-game currency, Golden Eagle Coins. In order to obtain Golden Eagle Coins, players must trade certain items found within Badwater Canyon. Though currently limited to Stronghold purchases, Daybreak confirms that the usage of this currency “will continue to be expanded in the future.”
Both combat and Just Survive’s weapon system have also been reworked. According to Daybreak, “all weapons have been rebuilt from scratch.” As such, Daybreak has also introduced tiers to each weapon “while fine-tuning them to look and feel unique.” Despite the available patch notes, though, it is currently unknown which weapons fit into which tiers. The full list of notes for Just Survive can be seen here.
