H1Z1, Daybreak Games’ zombie survival game, has sold more than one million copies on Steam in just over three months. It looks like the ‘mixed’ reviews on the game’s Steam page hasn’t stopped people shuffling towards their monitors, arms extended, demanding more zombie survival experiences.

Daybreak’s president John Smedley announced the milestone on Twitter. The game, originally developed as part of Sony Online Entertainment, and now with Daybreak as the studio split from its Sony parent, has been available in early access on Steam since mid-January. The game has remained near the top of Steam’s best seller list, despite there being controversy over its microtransactions and general quality.
Our review saw Nick suggesting you wait for the game to develop a better feature set before you buy. Looks like a significant proportion of the gaming public decided to ignore his advice. Have you bought H1Z1? Do you wish you’d waited a while, or are you happy to be part of its million-strong player base?
