We’re very excited to announce that our evolved vision for Just Survive is now available on the Live servers. Since the first iteration of this game update hit Test in June, we’ve further refined the content to address your feedback and add layers of polish to the core gameplay.
We want Just Survive to be a complete, immersive survival experience, and this update is a huge step forward in realizing that goal. As part of the most comprehensive update in the game’s history, we have made changes to many core aspects of the game, introducing a new map, adding the Stronghold base building system, revamping weapons, and adding in-game currency:
Other changes in this update include refined harvesting mechanics, modifications to spawning and death along with numerous bugfixes and anti-cheat efforts. A full list of patch notes can be found here.
Alongside this content, a new narrative has been established, separating Just Survive from the H1Z1® universe. The name Just Survive reflects our drive towards a more mature and polished experience. This update represents our evolved vision for the game and lays the foundation for future updates in the months to come. Still have questions about today’s big update? This should help fill in the gaps.
A: You will not need to purchase Just Survive again. The game will remain in your Steam Library but under its new name, Just Survive.
A: Just Survive will remain in Early Access and cost $19.99 USD
A: Yes, the game will continue to grow and evolve as a Steam Early Access title. Community feedback is still as valuable as ever as we make this transition towards this new vision.
A: Yes. Just Survive will still require Daybreak Cash for optional in-game transactions.
A: A new Crate system has just made its way to Just Survive. With this new system, you will notice our entire Crate offering is now consolidated into two distinct options.
You’ll be able to purchase the most recently released Crate as before (currently the Hideout Crate), but all other available items can now be found in the Survivor Collection. What this means is that the vast majority of items from every previous Crate are in just one place!
A: We’ve dropped the price on our most recently released Crate to 200 DGC, and the Survivor Collection will be available for 100 DGC. The most recently released Crate will provide one item for each Crate, but the Survivor Collection will grant two! Do you have locked Crates in your inventory? Now is the time to crack them open, because we’ve lowered the unlock cost to just 50 DBC!
A: Given the new features and direction of Just Survive we decided we needed a brand new map to support it. What is releasing today is just a portion of the final map and we’ll continue to expand the boundaries and add new content as we go along through Early Access. See the latest additions right here.
A: Strongholds are a new way we are improving the direction of Just Survive. Gone are the days of random shack houses littering the wastelands. With Strongholds you’ll be able to design more interesting and defensible bases that present numerous obstacles for your enemies during timed Raid cycles. There are a set number of Stronghold build locations on the map that you can acquire before starting to build your base.
