To top it all off, H1Z1: King of the Kill is currently 40 percent off on Steam until April 24. Although H1Z1 is still in early access on Steam, it has split into two separate games. H1Z1: King of the Kill is the game being shown tonight at it is part of the massive online battle royal genre, in the similar vein of The Culling and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. The other game is called H1Z1: Just Survive and is mainly a survival game that has other players in it all trying to survive just like you. Both games have mixed reviews on Steam but still have many players still playing so now is just as good of a time as any to jump in if either game interests you. H1Z1 is also has plans to come to Xbox One and PS4 but those plans are paused as of now.
