Unturned is a free-to-play post-apocalyptic zombie survival game developed by Smartly Dressed Games, and originally started as a browser game before moving to Steam.

The game has gone through three distinct iterations: "antique," "classic," and "version 3." A "preview" branch can be opted into that allows for public testing before an update goes live. The game is available from its store page, and community features can be easily found through its community hub.

Unlike its first two iterations, version 3 features Steam Economy integration in the form of random daily playtime drops, a Community Market, and a developer-managed storefront called the Stockpile. There is a separate "unity-5.5" branch of the game that is also considered to be part of version 3, but runs on an older version of Unity.

History[edit]

The antique iteration predates Unturned's availability on Steam. First publicly accessible in 2013, antique was the first iteration of Unturned and was created as the spiritual successor to Deadzone. The game continued to see development until 2014.

Unturned was first available on the Steam platform in 2014, during its classic iteration. With the release of classic, antique was no longer accessible.

Version 3 is the latest and final iteration of Unturned, and is the iteration downloaded when first installing the game. The game left early access while in this iteration, on July 7, 2017.

Chinese version[edit]

In order to provide a proper official localization to Unturned's Chinese audience, Nelson formed a development team in partnership with Tencent Games—the video game publishing division of Tencent Interactive Entertainment, which itself is a division of Tencent. Their partnership is called Sānlúnchē (三轮车). While the mainline build is still maintained by Smartly Dressed Games, a separate Chinese version is developed by Hong and operated by UU. The Chinese version of the game is localized as Untransformed (未转变的).

The latest information regarding the Chinese version of the game can be found on Sina Weibo, a Chinese microblogging (weibo) website and one of the biggest social media platforms in China. This information is distributed by Tencent Technology (Shenzhen) Co Ltd, who run the game's official news account on the site. Additionally, they run the official forum for the Chinese version of the game. The original video announcing the partnership was released on Sina Weibo.

Alternatively, information can also be found on Baidu Tieba (the largest Chinese communication platform) and is provided by UU directly. A slightly modified version of original announcement video was posted on Baidu Tieba.
