Press release: Oldschool to switch their servers from DayZ to Unturned!

Oldschool Hardcore to switch their servers from DayZ Standalone to Unturned.

Starting with April 10th, Oldschool Hardcore will switch their servers from DayZ Standalone to the popular survival game Unturned. This move comes surprising as Oldschool Hardcore just celebrated their third birthday running DayZ Standalone servers in March 2017.


Unturned is a open sandbox survival video game currently in development by Smartly Dressed Games. The game places the player on the fictional Canadian Prince Edward Island where a mysteriouse plague has turned most of the population into violent zombies. As a survivor, the player must scavenge the world for food, water, weapons, and medicine while killing or avoiding zombies, and killing,  avoiding, or cooperating with other players in an effort to survive the outbreak. 

"It is the perfect replacement for the DayZ Standalone", says Oldschool Hardcore chief-developer N4ttl, "There is everything in the game that Bohemia Inc. (developers of DayZ Standalone) failed to deliver in the last three years: working basebuilding, working vehicles even flying choppers(!), an awesome and functional crafting system, realistic weapons, deadly zombies. It has all the stuff to create a punishing PVP survival experience for the squads of Oldschool Hardcore. And of course, it is 1pp only -- there are so many reasons to switch to this game and to ditch DayZ".

Oldschool Hardcore will continue running their DayZ server until the April 9th, 2017. In the night from 9th to 10th of April they will shutdown their Standalone server after more than three years. The new Unturned server will be available starting April 10th, 3 am CET.

Oldschool administrator Aim-iliO is certain that the Oldschool Hardcore community will welcome this switch: "Finally there will be no more desync problems or framedrops as Unturned uses the popular Unity engine. Its ultra-realistic and provides at least 10 times the assets DayZ provided in 0.61 patch. We will start with a 10 person server and we sure that it will be full from the first minute. If it is successful we plan to provide more Unturned servers to fulfill the demand for more slots later this year."

Oldschool Hardcore also made cooperations with popular streamers who will be streaming Unturned on a daily base starting on April, 10th 2017. The Oldschool Admin team was not willing to give away the names of these streamers yet "I can only say that they belong to the worlds most famous streamers -- they also played DayZ 1pp a lot in the past, and like us, got frustrated by the slow development of the DayZ standalone."

You can download Unturned at the Steam store -- it is currently in early access alpha and it is free to play
