    If Epic uses a in-game 24 hour clock to determine when its night and when its day; Something that would be cool to do is if they constantly update the time that night and day comes parallel to the hosts time zone. It be cool if night came faster in the winter and day time was longer in the summer...

    I don't know if the 24 hour clock would work out. 1st shift employees might never see a day cycle, and 3rd shift employees would never see a day cycle. Also, time zones wouldn't really have the effect you are talking about. The same time zone at the equator would not be anywhere near to the day/night cycle close to the poles. It would be interesting if they did it like you were saying in regards to regions though, but Alaska would be screwed in the winter, lol.

    lol Alaska be so OP during their day seasons but screwed during their night seasons

    As awesome as that sounds, it'd be a bit hard to replicate on a timezone by timezone basis.

    I know it be a bitch to program, but small things like that in my opinion turns a great game in my eyes to a fantastic game. Small stuff matters a lot in the long run

    That's really not a "small thing" though. That's actually something pretty massive and impressive. Sure it'd be awesome, but the amount of money they'd have to dump into that alone would cause the price to go up significantly. I also think it's going to be short cycles of day and night (like 10 minute day 10 minute night) instead of Day Z style 24 hour cycles.

    "The PC platform gives us great flexibility to do that." Is it me, or does Epic love to jump on bandwagons on what is popular/gives them money to be exclusive? They first abandoned the PC market place to become a primarily 360 developer while complaining about piracy on PC, saying the market wasn't viable. Then they start developing for iOS, making the ridiculous claims how that was the future of AAA gaming while still claiming PC gaming was a hive of scum and villainy. Now, suddenly the PC market is back in the spotlight, and Epic just wants everyone to remember that they grew up on PC and how great PC gaming is when compared to those other markets that are bad with their mean patching costs and closed, outdated hardware. Can't wait for Epic to start badmouthing the PC community again once the XBOX 720 comes out.

    So it's like urban Minecraft with a story and *sigh* zombies?
  • EwoksTasteLikeChicken - July 25, 2012 7:47 p.m.

    I was just thinking that.
  • CrashmanX - July 25, 2012 8:24 p.m.

    No. It's more like hoarde mode but you have to run to specific locations to gather resources to build up your base and survive the night. Then during the day run out and grab more resources and build up. I don't think it's going to be much like Minecraft besides being able to build your base how you want (Sooo like Minecraft and nothing else. Totally.) and Zombies. Yes, Minecraft has Zombies.
  • cgkyou - July 26, 2012 10:51 a.m.

    They said it isn't zombies. The creatures they are fighting are wearing human body parts to try and trick you into thinking they are human.

    I wouldn't worry about it being pc exclusive. By the time this gets released, we will at the very least have a solid release date on the new generation of consoles. I mean, come on, what major companies are releasing PC exclusives these days?
  • Jeff the Fridge - July 26, 2012 2:47 p.m.

    Usually its only indie games going for pc exclusivity, or mmos
  • - July 26, 2012 11:07 a.m.

    Can we all things breake in game, like trees, houses, roads in game, and then use it for building our base?
  • jirseth - July 26, 2012 4:59 p.m.

    Is the beta going to be closed or open? Also, is there an early registration to try and get into the beta?
  • zombi3grim - July 29, 2012 10:35 a.m.

    Yeah, this deff. wont be PC exclusive for long. The thing was built for Xbox Live.
