7 Days to Die Roadmap 2024: What’s Next For the Game After 1.0 Update

After more than a decade in early access, 7 Days to Die has finally stepped out of Early Access, with a lot of content and graphical fidelity updates promised in 7 Days to Die Roadmap 2024

7 Days to Die, AKA one of the first ‘Survival horde zombie crafting game’ is stepping out of early access after 12 years, and we have a list of graphical and game content updates lined up for and after the 1.0 release. The 1.0 will be a separate purchase that owners of the legacy copy would have to buy, and the original legacy version would get ‘delisted’.

The developers have, still, however allowed fans to play the legacy version after the 1.0 release, but no further game support of future updates would be released for the legacy version as it makes sense to support the new separate 1.0 release copy of 7Days To Die.

However, in the Legacy console version, you would still be able to play the old delisted 7 Days to Die game, but you can no longer purchase it off of your favorite game shop or online. The developer team also revealed that they are ‘working with Microsoft and Sony to provide a discount for Legacy version owners of the game when they purchase the 1.0 updated game, priced at 44.99$.

Fans also need to note that there would be no save options for you after a Patch release meaning that players would have to start a ‘new game’ everytime the game is updated with a new Patch. This won’t be case ‘eventually’ as Fun Pimp Games are working on introducing changes to the game’s architecture, meaning an option for save game and compatibility across console platforms and updates would be available in the future.
