Zombie MMO H1Z1 is about to undergo some major changes according to developer Daybreak.

The PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game will arrive in the summer, while the PC version of the game is to be sold as two distinct, separate packages – H1Z1: King of the Kill and H1Z1: Just Survive.

King of the Kill is to be a “large-scale, high-intensity” shooter that will feature a variety of games, including “Battle Royale”, a game mode created by a player called PlayerUnknown. The regular version of H1Z1, which has sold 2.5 million copies in its incomplete state, will become H1Z1: Just Survive.

When they arrive on PC through Steam Early Access, both King of the Kill and Just Survive will be sold for $20 each. If you already own or buy H1Z1 before February 16th, you’ll receive both games when they separate on February 17th. H1Z1 currently costs $20 as it is.

According to an interview with GameSpot, this split was asked for by the community: “They have completely different communities that have different needs, desires, and wants, and we really want to be able to cater and grow the games to be able to nurture both of those players bases distinctly,” said Daybreak’s chief publishing officer Laura Naviaux.

“After a lot of thought, we came to the conclusion that we should really split these games into two different products and the player community had actually asked us to do that.”

When the split occurs, all the items that existing players have will be replicated across both versions. When the console version of H1Z1 arrives, it will only be the King of the Kill variant, but Daybreak has plans to bring Just Survive to the consoles eventually.
