H1Z1 has officially left the open beta phase on the PlayStation 4. This new game has been described by developer Daybreak Games as “the original standalone battle royale game”. After it left the open beta phase, it has become a full, free-to-play title for everyone on the console. H1Z1 producer Terrence Yee has released a statement, regarding the successful launch of the game, which read, “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 the battle royale on the console.”
The H1Z1 launch update includes Battle Pass Season 1, two new weapons, a new vehicle and new launch bundles. Now the PS4 players can unlock up to 30 rewards levels across 3 distinct lines. The premium line can be purchased for $5.49/€5.49. However, all PS Plus members will receive the PS Plus line included in membership. The explosive RPG and the deadly SOCOM Sniper Rifle now can be found in gold tier airdrops and in purple tier airdrops respectively.
The new update will include a new ARV which makes it the ultimate vehicle for a squad-based gameplay. Players can now customize their characters to the max through the new Viper Starter bundle which will cost only $4.99 USD or Hardline Deluxe bundle. The latter includes Premium Battle Pass for $34.99 USD. Both launches are available at a special discount price until September 4 on the PlayStation Store. The release of the official PlayStation 4 H1Z1 is somewhat of a win for PlayStation. Many speculations have been going on around this new launch. A lot of people are thinking that this will be the game which will enable the cross-play on PS4.
