Sony’s Unannounced Sandbox Game Gets a Teaser Site; Announcement Coming Tomorrow

on April 8, 2014 8:01 PM

Today Sony Online Entertainment opened a new website for its unannounced project, apparently codenamed H1Z1. The website can be found here, and it shows just a rather eerie landscape for the moment.

President John Smedley mentioned on Twitter that the game will be fully unveiled with gameplay footage tomorrow.

Watch¬† tmw between 5-6pm PST if you are interested in the new game we haven’t announced. there is gameplay footage.

He also clarified that we’ll be able to play it fully “soon,” seemingly indicating that we’re already quite close to the game’s release or beta.

You can play it yourself soon. and by play I mean play fully.

Following Smedley’s previous hints, word on the street is that the title will be a post-apocalyptic survival horror sandbox MMORPG with plenty of zombies to slaughter. Smedley also went on record saying that those that loved the sandbox elements of the now defunct¬†Star Wars Galaxies¬†would appreciate the new game.

There’s still no word about the platforms, but if recent Sony Online Entertainment patterns are any indication it’ll probably head to PC first followed by PS4 after a while.
