Could the Mystery SOE H1Z1 Announce Relate to Wizardry Online?
UPDATE: It has been confirmed via Polygon that H1Z1 is a post-apocalyptic MMO (which makes sense due to the title similarity to the H1N1 scare from years back). With it being based in a more modern time frame, this should push it firmly away from having ties with Wizardry Online.
It is surprising, though, that an article giving official details about the game has been published hours before the official announcement.
The original article remains below.
In case you might have been unaware, Sony Online Entertainment is due to announce a project this evening at 8pm ET / 5pm PT. All we know at this point is that the project is named H1Z1 as of now.
After checking out the website, I was curious for a bit more information that was currently available. Upon further “review”, attempting to get me to the “About” page revealed a peculiar bit of info…
Now this could full well be that the designers of the website took a template from another SOE site, but the possibility remains that H1Z1 could relate to Wizardry Online in some way. Expansion, maybe?
Either way, we’ll know a lot more at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.
