Daybreak Games has split their open-world zombie-themed survival title H1Z1 into two titles, H1Z1: King of the Kill and H1Z1: Just Survive. Both titles exist within the same universe but are being developed by different teams who are working towards separate content milestones. H1Z1: King of the Kill is an online shooter set in large arenas where players battle to be the last one standing across several modes, including Battle Royale. King of the Hill is set to launch this summer for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. H1Z1: Just Survive is based on the original concept of players scavenging for items, crafting gear, and building makeshift shelters while battling zombies and one another. Just Survive will be in Early Access for the rest of the year.
