Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed a Steam Early Access release date for its post-apocalyptic zombie MMO game, H1Z1. It will be available on PC via Steam from January 15 next year for $ 19.99.

Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley announced via Reddit that the company was expecting to release two versions of the game. The first of these will be the Early Access version, and a “more expensive one” will be announced “shortly.” According to Smedley the difference between the two versions would include features such as different game mode servers and “other specifics.” Smedley confirmed that these different game mode servers could also be accessed by purchasing or earning tickets.

Smedley reiterated that the Early Access version of H1Z1 would not be a finished game, posting “If that’s what you’re expecting, DO NOT BUY EARLY ACCESS. The goal here is to let you in early and help us mold it into a game you want to be a part of for quite a long time.”

Inspired by DayZ and The Walking Dead, H1Z1 was announced earlier this year. Earlier this year Sony Entertainment Online confirmed that H1Z1 will also launch for PS4, although a specific release date has not been revealed.

Real-time strategy game Grey Goo will release on PC via Steam on January 23, 2015, developer Petroglyph has announced.

Petroglyph originally planned to follow its Alpha testing with a Closed Alpha and more comprehensive Beta Testing, but it said that the information it already gathered on balance and stability was enough to come up with a road map that would take it all the way to launch.

“We know that many of you were hoping to be involved in a more full-blown Beta Testing phase,” it said. “However, instead, we have been focused on using the data we received to improve the game so that we can get Grey Goo into your hands and onto your computer as soon as possible.”

“We have a rich, lengthy background as RTS developers, dating all the way back to our time on the original Command & Conquer at Westwood Studios,” Executive Producer at Petroglyph Ted Morris said back when the game was first announced. “We want to bring back some of what made those ‘traditional’ RTS games great while addressing all the lessons we’ve learned along the way.”

Petroglyph said it will release more information about the game in the months leading to launch, starting with developer diary above.
