Briefly: Just Survive, Daybreak Games’s online survival game, is shutting down its servers on October 24, 2018. In a post announcing the shutdown, the team explains that “the current population of the game makes it untenable to maintain.”
I’ve played some Fortnite matches alone and with friends, but the game never clicks with me. I don’t like building or dealing with expert builders. So I was excited to try out the previously PC only H1Z1, which recently started an open beta on PS4.
If your player base is tanking and you’ve tried everything else under the sun to boost numbers, what do you do? Go free-to-play, of course. This is the route Daybreak has taken with its title H1Z1, dropping the price from $US19.99 (~$26) to zilch.
