Daybreak Games is proud to announce that H1Z1: Battle Royale has left open beta and officially launched on to PlayStation 4.
H1Z1: Battle Royale is a standalone battle royale shooter, where you can squad up with friends or go solo as you parachute on to an island and try to become the last one standing. H1Z1 Producer Terrece Yee had this to say about the full release:
“Everyone here at Daybreak Games is thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response to H1Z1’s debut on PS4. Ten million new players in our first month in Open Beta is an incredible milestone, and our entire development team has worked tirelessly to build on that early success. We’re beyond excited to officially launch H1Z1 on PS4—this is our fully realized vision for battle royale on console.”
H1Z1 Battle Royale Update
The official H1Z1: Battle Royale launch is coming with a significant update that includes the following:
Battle Pass Season One: Unlock up to 30 reward levels across three district lines (free, premium, and PS Plus). Battle Pass Season One premium line can be purchased for $5.49, while all PS Plus members will receive the PS Plus line included in membership. Level progression will carry over between lines.
Two new weapons: Gold tier airdrops will have the explosive RPG which is good at taking out vehicles. The ever-deadly SOCOM Sniper Rifle can be found in purple airdrops and is perfect for long range gunfights.
New vehicle: The ARV fits a full fives team and includes a hatch for a squad mate to fire out the top, making it a perfect vehicle for you and your squad to roll in.
New launch bundles: Customize your character to the max through the new Viper Starter Bundle for $4.99 or the Hardline Deluxe bundle for $34.99 which includes the Premium Battle Pass. Both packages are available on the PlayStation 4 with a special launch discount until September 4.
Daybreak games worked hard during the H1Z1: Battle Royale beta to bring regular updates and community requested gameplay improvements, including the addition of Revive, Airstrike Signal, EMP Grenade, Arcade Mode events, new lighting schemes, and additional tuning and balancing to weapons, movement, gas ring timing, and other gameplay mechanics.
H1Z1: Battle Royale saw a lot of changes from its Steam release several years ago, and Daybreak Games is hitting it out of the park by launching it on PlayStation 4. H1Z1: Battle Royale is now available as a free-to-play game.
