H1Z1 passes 1m Steam Early Access sales

Online zombie title H1Z1 has now sold over 1m copies on Steam, developer Daybreak Game Company (formerly Sony Online Entertainment) has said.

The game was released via Steam Early Access in January. It costs 14.99 to download, although it will be a free-to-play title once it launches proper later this year.

The game has previously been hit with accusations of being pay-to-win” owing to what were perceived as being the disproportionate advantages offered to those who pay put for some of its in-game content drops. Refunds were offered in the wake of the drama.

In fact, Daybreak has throughout the game's short life proved remarkably responsive to feedback from its community. Earlier this month the company proposed the addition of a premium monthly pass to access the Battle Royale mode, but these plans were scrapped after players complained about the current state of the feature.
