Earlier on this week we told you about H1Z1, the very promising zombie MMORPG that is on the way to the PC and PS4 from Sony Online Entertainment. We told you that more details were coming soon and now we are happy to confirm that a H1Z1 live stream has been confirmed for later this week.
If you saw the initial reveal last week, you’ll know that this could end up being one of the highlights of the PS4 later this year. Final Fantasy 14 may be taking your time at the moment, but H1Z1 is going to be free-to-play, with micro-transactions that won’t require a subscription to play.
Now, we can show you the confirmation from Jimmy Whisenhunt, a senior game designer at Sony Online Studios. He was asked when the H1Z1 live stream start time will be and Jimmy replied by saying that it will happen on Thursday.
@DatGuyLirik Looks like I'm shooting for Thursday!

Even better, we’ve done some further digging and found out that the live stream should start around 5pm Pacific Time or 8pm Eastern Time, although it could change between now and Friday as the word tentative was highlighted.
It’s good enough for us though and the live stream will finally give us another glance at the epic open world game and the sort of scale we could be dealing with on PS4.
Will you be tuning in to the live stream? We have added the Twitch stream below, you can watch it directly from this post as soon as the stream goes live!
