that was fast thought that wasn't ready until the later half of May updates

The female player model will be ready in time for our patch this Thursday. When creating a new character, you will be able to choose between her and the current male character. You will see her in action during our Pre-Patch Livestream this Wednesday at 4PM.

All of our current wearables have been adjusted to fit the model so you can use any of the skins on any of the items and they will fit.

We are currently compiling our list for the May Roadmap. I will update it with everything we want to include in the game during our Quality of Life week, next week. We have some really fun ideas and can't wait to get the completed Roadmap out to you.

If you want to read more about both new player models you should check out a blog written by our Art Director - Sebastian Strzalkowski:

We will have one of these “Quality of Life” weeks per month. This gives us the opportunity to go back and smooth out some rough edges on things that were added during the month. We want to keep our cadence of releasing some new content every patch, but with that speed of development some things fall through the cracks. This is the week where we can go back and fine tune things. We will still be releasing a patch like normal but it will be mainly for focused on bug fixes and improved anti-cheat.

feedback is helping improve things:

Hey Survivors!

As you know, next week is our Quality of Life patch. A time where we go back and fix issues that may have been overlooked and smooth some of the rough edges. We will be using this thread as a home base for you main issues.

Not every bug has a quick fix, just because you put it on this thread doesn't mean it will be patched by next Thursday. We will do our best to iron out the main offenders though. We will also be looking at your reports on the issue tracker.

A few ways you can help us with this list is to be as through as possible. When a bug is reported we try and replicate it back on our end. This gives us the logs of exactly what went wrong. Having those logs are invaluable to fixing the issue. So if you are going to take the time to post on this thread, also take the time to be as specific as possible. Videos and images are a HUGE plus.

If you don’t want to get specific then another way you can help out is to Upvote the issues you are encountering that someone else has already gone in depth about. This isn’t a thread to troll each other with random downvotes and swearing. Let’s try and be as constructive with this thread as possible.

Also, this is a thread about bugs and glitches. We understand hacking/cheating is still our top priority and our anti-cheat team is not slowing down one bit.

Thanks in advance for all your comments and reports. Together we will make H1Z1 an incredible game.

Here are the info they say of today's 5/1 updates

Servers will be coming down at 3AM Pacific for approximately 2 hours.

We will be doing a full player/world wipe

We will be collecting a list of current players for the FREE Daybreak t-shirt grant. This grant will happen after the servers go live.

Steam Marketplace is being moved to our Quality of Life patch next week. We're working with Steam to make sure all the bugs are ironed out. This is a bigger ticket item and requires multiple passes from us and Steam. It almost made it into this patch but unfortunately had to be moved.

Release Notes


You can now choose to be a female survivor in the H1Z1 core game and Battle Royale.
All existing wearable’s and emotes work for both genders, including your account items. No matter what gender you choose, skinning an item or using an emote will work for both.
If you wish to change gender, you will need to delete the character and recreate it.
Known issues: There is currently limited voice for the female character. More will be coming soon.

Other Additions

All H1Z1 players will receive a "Daybreak Games" in-game t-shirt. You must own H1Z1 prior to the server wipe.
First Person Battle Royale is now available
Offroader now has upgraded interior
Green and Brown Camo beanies now have the correct texture
You can no longer pick up items, open/close doors or search containers while restrained
380 rounds will now spawn in Battle Royale
The recipe for yeast now gives 2 yeast instead of 10
Handcuff keys are now visualized in game
Added a new recipe for a metal wall that has a doorway inside of it. This can be used instead of a metal gate to gain access to your base.
Biofuel and ethanol now do half the damage to structures that they used to.
The recipe for ethanol now creates 1 ethanol instead of 5.
Flashbangs are now in game, they will explode after 3 seconds of being thrown and will blind anyone within a 7 meter radius.

Construction changes:

“No placement” radius around bases has been increased. The owner of the base and people grouped with the owner are not affected.
If the owner of a foundation does not log in for a set amount of time (currently testing it at 2 weeks), the foundation reverts to un-owned, and may be claimed by another player.
If the owner of a foundation deletes his or her character, the base will be set to un-owned immediately. This will allow groups of friends to "hand off" management of their base to another player.
