Some time ago John Smedley hinted on twitter that they’re working on a brand new MMO-project. Earlier this week, SOE finally revealed some details regarding H1Z1 a new Zombie-Survival MMO.
As you might have already guessed, H1Z1 refers to the virus that wipes out most life and turns people into zombies. Unlike most Zombie-Survival games that are available right now, SOE tries to create a world filled with zombies and other dangers not just a small server.
The game will also be implementing fire. Smedley had this to say about the awesome feature:
When you see a zombie coming up to you with nothing out but a highway flare. But here is something your gonna be able to do that you can’t do in these other games: Light things on fire. We are in the middle of putting that in so you are gonna be able to burn down trees, burn down stuff, and that’s gonna be a lot of fun. The idea is that these players [are] building these forts and all of the sudden these other guys coming in lighting it on fire and waiting till they come out of the fortress … is awesome.
More details will be revealed over time on the official game site here.
