With this game now leaving Closed Beta and entering Steam Early Access (It's due to leave E.A. before Xmas 2017), it's time to create a thread for this game.
 
I think it has the potential to be 'the' King Of The Hill game you'll always play.  It has promised modding support and, although it is currently a PC only title, the devs have confirmed they are looking at the feasibility of a console conversion once the PC version has released fully.

The official website is here and carries regular blogs and full update notes.

The Steam page is here.

Not free, no....

However, it is only "buy the game and play". It will be one payment and the micro-transactions will be only for cosmetic items and totally voluntary. There will be no pay to win items.

The pre-order was $30, but that was sold out pretty quickly.

I'm not into the early access model but I'll most likely follow this game.

The game has now hit Early Access and is available to purchase.

 

The Devs suggest the EA phase will last six months or so, but it already shows a lot of potential.

Been looking at this game on youtube and i really like the idea of it. 1 complaint is not being able to have a proper fist fight, I've seen people land next to each other on youtube and as they try and find a weapon they are pathetically punching each other or not even bothering to do that, but that is a perfect opportunity to start the match in a fast and brutal way, by beating the sh*t out of someone in a battle of life and death if you happen to land next to someone. The downed player could either die or be KO'd, giving the winner of the fight a chance to run away.

If they are planning to bring it to console, this will be a pain. You must have Gold or PS+ to play multiplayer even if it's the only game mode. I find it stupid to buy a game for $60 (or $30 in this case) and I can't even use it the second I purchase it unless I toss out even more cash.

I want this sh*t bad. Always loved H1Z1:KotK but this seems like a more polished game. The map looks a bit bland and I am not that keen on the looting inventory but all that can change. Looking forward to this and Escape from Tarkov.

The Dev Blog has been updated with the first service patch and the roadmap for early access releases.

They're really pushing for regular releases, with daily server updates, weekly client updates and new content monthly.

I'm really liking the attitude of the Devs.

Just grabbed this on steam, is pretty good. Easier to understand and get kills with than H1Z1, far less bunnyhopping shotgunning pricks. Managed to get plenty of nice kills.

 

My only issue is that the the looting doesn't work that great and often won't pick up items even though it says click to pick up. Also picking sh*t up off the floor takes a f*cking age, and multiple things can't be hoovered up which kind of sucks as you end up finding stuff next to other items and you pick them up on accident. I also just had some terrible lag where it just rubberbanded me back to the same spot over and over and I spent like 45 seconds trying to loot someone I killed and got killed in the process because the game was being a right c*nt.

 

Other than that this is decent if this is your kind of genre.

We've been having a similar issue to this but with vehicles. Hitting F to enter/drive doesn't even work the first time you do it, has to be done twice which is a PITA when you're getting shot at and trying to make a run for it.

 

Enjoying the game so far, at least in terms of squad play. Better now than H1Z1 ever was for my tastes and definitely better than The Culling which went to complete sh*t after the devs got internet famous. Next patch could use some UI improvements though, really bad in places.

Yeah, f*ck the culling.

 

There are some aspects of H1Z1 I do like though, such as having keys for vehicles so they can't be quickly stolen, having vehicle inventory. Having better cosmetic options and having favorite skins for each equipment type and weapon skins.

 

It would be nice to have saved presets for a default chosen rate of fire so all SMGS picked up could be on auto. And choose preferred zeroing distance.

 

 

As far as I am able to get these days is consistently to 3rd, only once got to 2nd and I f*cking choked like a f*cking baby bird. I just feel the pressure and I twitch and jerk the mouse and end up ADS'ing or some stupid thing when I get spooked and it always ends up f*cking me up.

f*ck man, better than I have done yet.

 

Whenever sh*t pops off it always makes me sh*t myself and I yank the mouse and hit ADS when I don't want to. It would be nice if I could edit it a little so it was a hold to iron sight and try that. The tap on and off thing really f*cks me over.

 

I had a game last night where I was idle and came back and was standing next to like 8 f*cking people, so I falcon punched them all, it felt f*cking awesome and netted a sh*t load of points for it. Managed to get pretty high up and some decent kills but my situational awareness sucks when it gets to the last few, especially when I am in the middle and not on the outer edge. I really need to force myself into better strategy but I just cant help it sometimes. The wait kills you and you just want to fire at some f*cker even though you end up just giving away your position.

There's an offer on right now for free loot if you have twich prime/amazon prime. I recommend it as the outfit is pretty good. Finally some decent non hipster trousers that cover your boots. A decent black tee and a balaclava. I now am not worried about getting crates for a while as my guy looks like a right evil ruskie bastard now.

 

Also the VSS is awesome.

 

Edit: New patch is out, sunsets, and glock 18's baby:

The VSS seems to get a lot of flak in some corners but it's a pretty handy weapon to have on hand regardless of mode, even though it shines best in solo. The silencer on it muffles sound so damn well.

 

This new patch has probably been my favourite so far just because the interaction sh*t (picking up loot, getting into vehicles etc) now works smoothly; no more of this press F multiple times to do stuff nonsense.

Finally got a chicken dinner in duos with Forty.

 

I have been dicking around too much in solo trying to get combat experience and not actually avoiding fights and trying to survive, this time we f*cking had good circle placement and had an amazing flanking route along the cliff edge on the east side of the military island area. Managed to snap up 6 kills and some epic flanking tactics on 3 different squads.

I wish I knew more c*nts that played this sh*t, how is this topic so dead?

Those are some glorious screens, I wish I had this performance on the game. I was playing a good bit when it came out but my friends drifted away from it and I don't find the game much fun as a solo player.

All I ever have played is solo since launch until last week. Played 1 time as a 4 man squad, and now a couple in duos, but not all that much.

 

Oh man did I get a nice kill. I parachuted into Primorsk down in the bottom left of the main island, had it all to myself, there was this perfectly spawned boat at the southern tip of the beach, and the circle moved over the military base so it was my perfect getaway boat. I was looting some good sh*t happy as larry, then I heard this car. I was like "WTF?" as what crazy son of a bitch would turn up there at that time, totally the opposite end from where they need to be. It was some ungeared nublet. I chased him through the hangars on the beach and lost him, then I thought. "Oh f*ck, I know what he is doing". I heard the boat start up. So I rushed over to it, and sure enough the c*nt was taking off in it. So I thought I would give him a few shots from my SKS, and guess what, *BOOSH* one shot headshot to the c*nt and he fell the f*ck out of the boat. Such a satisfying kill. Wish I had some recording software for that one. Took a screen though.

Yeah I'm in the same boat. I usually prefer this game in Duos/Squads. Solos in NA tend to become campfests and I'm too impatient for that; I want aggression and combat, but so far the game punishes those who push and rewards those who camp. Positioning in crucial in this game. Hopefully the 1st person-only update fixes some of that. Because it's during the firefights and combat situations that this game shines for me. Picking people off from dozens of yards away and getting picked off in the same way doesn't really feel the same.

Yeah I do better solo as far as kills go, but the camping is annoying. When I play with a squad I don't seem to contribute much though. I think it's a mental block I put on myself. Either way I have yet to get an elusive chicken dinner, but have come close twice in squads and three times solo.

 

This was my best match kills wise. Got blessed by the circle essentially favoring me from the beginning. I admit I did a lot of strategic positioning (which some salty f*cks might call camping, but I don't see it as full blown camping) and let the people come to me. I panicked on a reload while fighting a guy in front of me and got killed by a guy sneaking up the rocks behind me.

 

GQIFyDd.png

 

And on this one the circles were never on my side. And neither was the loot. I spent the entire match running, boosting and healing all because of the blue walls. Didn't encounter other players until the very end (top 6). Had the last guy pinned under a tree with maybe 1 or 2 hits left on him. I assumed the other guy was on the side of the circle and didn't see him flank me, and steal my kill. I was all out of healing gear as I used it all up on circle related bs. That match should of been mine smh.

I honestly can't tell a difference between servers. NA/SA/AS/OC... it's just as good/bad on all of them.

 

Never tried SEA though.

Holy f*cking c*nting balls bros.

 

I got a solo chicken dinner finally, long awaited as f*ck.

 

Had so many 2nds I can't count. Played it smart this time.

 

Lucked out on gear at the start, landed at the containers, had 7.62 and 5.56 out my arse. Saw no one, had a car the entire game, found a crate with an M249 which won me the game. So was rocking the 416 with acog, fully decked apart from muzzle, and M249 with 240 rounds for each. It shrunk to the lake round yasnaya, heard suppressed shots, snuck up a rock and M249'ed a dude but almost ballsed it and lost all health except for a c*nthair, probably 5%. The git had sh*tLOADS of loot. Had 3 f*cking med kits, I used one already to get my health back, took his suppressor and had f*cking 11 energy drinks and 6 painkillers and like 10 first aids. *This is when my mate just requested to watch my broadcast on steam*

 

VNLbC6t.jpg

 

Moved down to the road and hid behind a barrier, saw a sneaky f*ck near a house to my right and popped his arse with the silenced 416. Then I moved to the small circle and realized it was only 1v1. Saw him in a field and just waited with the 249 ready. Sprayed about 40 shots at him and he hid behind the defilade. He eventually popped up again and I hosed the f*cker and got it and f*ck me what a good time for my bro to watch that sh*t happen. Boners all round son.

So win. Some bonus pics:
