Just Survive Livestream February 10th

Posted on 09/02/2017 at 12:30AM UTC

It seems like forever since there has been something to post about, today however was announced that there will be a livestream on Friday February 10th, here is the announcement from Landon Montgomery:

Hi!

We didn't forget about this, I promise. In fact, the team's been talking about it a lot over the last month and we finally realized that if we did a complete reveal of everything we have planned for 2017, it'd be a 10-hour stream! I know a lot of people would actually enjoy a marathon show, but in the interest of focusing on key features we're going to segment things out over the next several streams instead.

This Friday at 3PM PST, JS Lead Game Designer Ben Jones will sit down with Senior Game Designer Justin Dazet and special guest, BruceLeeRob to discuss a number of new things. We'll talk about the new and greatly improved melee system, Strongholds (base building like you've not seen it before in JS), and we just might reveal a surprise at the end of the show. You've all been incredibly patient these past few months and deserve to see what we're up to! As always, we'll be happy to answer as many questions as we can so please come prepared.

Here is the link to the Twitch channel it will be broadcast on: https://www.twitch.tv/h1z1justsurvive

3PM PST is 6PM EST / 11PM GMT / midnight CET / 9AM (Saturday) AEST

Modular Base Building Preview

Posted on 10/12/2016 at 1:00AM UTC

Along with the update to the Test Server on November 22nd there were some hints and very rough work in progress assets found in the files associated with modular base building. All of these assets appear to be 5 metres wide or multiples thereof which is the same as the current base building walls.

Today in a Community Outbreak stream lead designer Ben Jones revealed some concept art and talked about their thoughts and ideas for base building going forward. They are certainly going for a much more modular system that many will be familiar with from other games like Rust, with upgrades from wood to metal to cement etc.

You can watch the whole Community Outbreak stream below, they also touch briefly upon some other aspects such as AI and NPC overhauls.

Daybreak confirms Russell Shanks departure

Posted on 06/12/2016 at 12:00PM UTC

Last week there were some rumors (via The Ancient Gaming Noob) that Russell Shanks who took over the position of President when John Smedley stepped down in July 2015 had left the company in October, the rumor originated from a change in Shanks LinkedIn profile.

On Monday it was confirmed by Daybreak (via MMORPG.com) to be tue and that Ji Ham of Columbus Nova the investment firm that purchased Daybreak (formerly Sony Online Entertainment) who has been listed as the co-President of the company since July 2015 will continue as acting president.

Daybreak Games confirms that Russ Shanks has recently stepped down from his position at Daybreak to pursue other interests. Ji Ham will continue as acting president of the company.

What does all this mean for H1Z1 and their other games? Well, probably nothing at all...

Survivors Rest: Prices have been fixed!

Posted on 27/10/2016 at 11:39PM UTC

Greetings Survivors,

Survivors Rest is happy to announce it's most recent update to Price Suggestions. Prices will now update for each item automatically once a day to reflect the suggested sales prices on OPSKINS.com in the form of USD. Where we have based our prices on OPSkins in the past, we quickly realized it was becoming nearly impossible to keep up with regardless of the help you as a community provided with our Price Voting application. To summarize, from here on out, all prices on the site will not be controlled manually and will be automatically updated to prices reflecting OPSkins. This should improve price gauging and create an overall safer trading environment for all users.

Safe trading,
Survivors Rest Team

Survivors Rest: 'Price Suggestions' to be Updated!

Posted on 03/08/2016 at 2:00PM UTC

Starting this week, Survivors Rest will begin undergoing changes to it's 'Price Suggestions' for items. With H1Z1 no longer being a part of the Steam market, we will be shifting our prices over to a USD value similar to and based around OPSkins' price histories. This should allow for much more accurate pricing on our end and guide users to better, smarter trades. Similarly, price voting will now allow and support OPSkins links as evidence and reference when creating a price suggestion. 

We'll do our best to keep everyone updated as these changes are implimented over the course of this next week. While we realize this is a major change that may impact the value of certain items, we believe it to be a necessary change that will overall improve our users trading experience.

Safe trades,
Survivors Rest team. 

Update #1: King of the Kill items have been updated to reflect OPSKINS' price histories. Items to be finalized still. Just Survive items have not been updated yet. 

Update #2: Just Survive Rare and Ultra Rare items have been updated to reflect OPSKINS' price histories. Uncommon, Common and other items will follow soon.
