The only thing worse than bird flu is zombie bird flu

More On: H1Z1

The H1N1 outbreak a few years ago was a very troubling time for me because I had a young child and nothing feels more helpless to me than a worldwide viral outbreak. That's some serious actual apocalypse nonsense that we of the modern world aren't really used to or expecting.   

But at least there were no zombies. The only positive thing about a super-deadly viral pandemic is that at least the victims don't try to eat you.  That's where the zombie survival MMO H1Z1 comes in.  SOE has released a demo today.  Jimmy Whisenhunt will guide through surviving the zombie-ridden post-apocalyptic Hell-scape.

To learn more follow the jump. 

In preparation for its upcoming Early Access launch, the H1Z1 team has released a new demo video showing off some of the latest features added to the game. In the video, Senior Designer Jimmy Whisenhunt demonstrates his survival skills and explains some of the features shown during E3, general survival tactics and new features, including crafting, the new bow weapon and dynamic weather.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, H1Z1 is a zombie survival MMO coming to the PC through Steam Early Access. Players must strategize in order to survive a worldwide infection, choosing to either band together or fight against one another in PvP combat.
