Groups are bands of survivors that work together to survive in the world that was left decimated after the H1Z1 pandemic. There were no plans to have a faction system in place for the launch of Early Access, but it is expected to be ready for the official launch of the full game.
Working together has its benefits, as groups of survivors can accomplish a lot together as a community, and there is safety in numbers. However, large groups will attract more attention from zombies and could have a harder time finding game to hunt. While having a small army to stand by your side can be nice, there is nothing keeping you from going lone wolf.
In the vast landscape survivors can build shelters. These player-built bases are one of the ways the players can try to carve out some small enclaves or pockets of territory in a dangerous world against an ever present zombie and human threat. Infected towns and cities are almost impossible to capture on your own so a gang to help is the way to go, the more the merrier.
