H1Z1, the recently announced zombie survival title from developer Sony Online Entertainment, will be hitting Steam Early Access sometime in the next four weeks according to an early morning Twitch stream today.

SOE revealed the news during a gameplay sneak peak which showed off a number of mechanics for the upcoming free-to-play title, including exploding barrels, catching people on fire and rather aggressive zombies. The Twitch stream was joined by Game Designer Jimmy Whisenhunt and Technical Director Tom Schenck, who offered up a rather in-depth look into H1Z1, including answering various fan questions.

When asked on air about the price for the Steam access, Whisenhunt revealed that you can expect H1Z1 to go up for $19.99, though further specifics on that will be made available later. Other fan questions included how the team would handle microtransactions, which Whisenhunt responded with "you won't be able to pay to be babied" and "no instant access to weapons."

The stream is now available for viewing directly through Twitch, where the team shows off vehicles, the rather bloodthirsty zombies and the realistic day/night cycle.

Music to my ears.

I think DayZ will be hard to top purely for the cult following it has. Then again, we gamers are fickle bastards and loyalty just doesn't exist when someone else does it better.

Sony can (maybe) throw s***loads of money at it but it still doesn't mean they can do it better.
