Is it playable yet?
I haven't played this game in several months and I was wondering if it was still nearly unplayable. Like, can you more easily kill zombies? I know that it used to take a metric ♥♥♥♥ton of hits to kill one.

It hasn't really changed in the past few months. If you do head shots it takes between 1-5 hits depending on weapon. Most people seem to use 2 hit weapons.

hatchet, katana and machete all kill zombies with 2 blows to the head.

By new map you mean updated current map. By opening this week once the bug is fixed do you mean
"Colorado V2. As of today we've finished almost all preliminary art tasks, and adding spawns, loot, etc to the map. We hope to have something that is ready for test by players on test channel this week. For the loot we're taking approach similar to what we did for a first version of the colorado in 2012. We're adding some new loot spawn features, that let us balance weapons spawns better." August post. link below.

Degredation and crafting are also mentioned on the above link.
There was a post about 4 months ago with Sergey saying there was only one thing left to do on it before it's release on test server, I'll try to find that one and link it also.

Did you watch Artemis testing loot on that map? http://www.twitch.tv/artemisknives/b/467389571
You will see things like loot spawning behind invisible walls for example in and entrance to a tunnel or even under a table in a diner he couldn't get too
Him getting kicked from areas just by going there
Going to the Airport with there being ZERO loot spawns and Kewk telling him on stream that loot there was working correctly and it was just his bad luck, then when we went back loot spawns everywhere

Super Boss Zombies, see Artemis in above link when asked about them saying there are none.
Link to Hammerpoint congrats to person for first super zombie kill https://www.facebook.com/Infestationmmo/posts/302270796556901
Link to Sergey interview talking about in game super zombies

Strongholds? *shrug* see above link about them being out by the end of September.
Link to them saying on 27th September that they would make a thread asking what people want in strongholds, still waiting for that thread by the way.
http://youtu.be/of1V3GuZrC0?t=1h4m40s indicating even they don't know what Strongholds are yet.

Sure they have added things like voip or clans/friends and they certainly have not been shy about tinkering with loot spawns over the months

If you decide to play the game try to go into it with a new perspective. I'm new to it, friend bought it for me, and I generally like it. I have about 13 hours in so far and it's pretty good. There's bugs and such but for the price it was expected. Yeah they promised alot but I'm deciding to look past that and I like the game. It's not spectacular but it's unique and I prefer it a thousand times to DayZ at least.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "There's bugs and such but for the price it was expected" when I buy a released game I don't expect bugs and such no matter the price, which by the way is another sticking point as this game was first marketed as a $30 game but then for some reason they put it at $15 after the alpha/beta period then claim that they need all the in game micro transactions and slow development time due to being a small team because they can't afford to have huge numbers of staff. Not our problem they dropped the price to half what they first announced.

As you say you are 13 hours in and you enjoy the game, that's cool but it won't be long until you come to the realisation that it really is a very shallow game with very little content and the reason the pvp has become rampant is because there is nothing else to do.

Some people do enjoy it after hundreds of hours and that is fine but all of them will be into it for the pvp not the pve or lack of but that still can't hide the fact of what the game is. A predatory cash cow run by a very shady company that has no place in the gaming industry. As soon as the money dries up from this game (like it did with War Inc) then they will move onto the next one, which I have suspicions we are starting to get a look at under a different company name already. Safe zones, marketplace and a global inventory anyone?

Rant over and to original poster, your question was is this game playable? yes it is if you accept it for what it really is and not what it is marketed as.

You can play it but you probably won't enjoy it.
