After a successful Beta period that started a couple of months ago, H1Z1: Battle Royale will get a full release on PS4 next month.
Starting August 7, the free-to-play shooter will leave its Beta phase and enjoy Trophy support, new weapons, features, and launch bundles. That includes a now customary Battle Pass.
You can get a more in-depth look at what’s new once the game finally launches.
H1Z1: Battle Royale – New Weapons and Vehicles
New to H1Z1 is the explosive RPG and deadly SOCOM semi-automatic sniper rifle. The RPG has particular utility against vehicles, while the SOCOM slots in between the Scout Rifle and M40 Sniper Rifle (now a one-shot kill to the head, even with a helmet) to add another tactical layer to long-range gunfights.
Also shaking up gameplay is a new vehicle: the ARV. This powerful personnel carrier fits a whole fives squad, and includes a hatch for your best marksman to pop out the top.
H1Z1: Battle Royale – Battle Pass and Bundles
Battle Pass Season 1 will be available at launch with 3 reward lines (free, premium and PS Plus) and 30 rewards tiers. Players can unlock tiers by earning XP through gameplay or through in-game purchases.
Two new bundles to be featured in the game are a kung-fu inspired Viper Starter bundle and Hardline Deluxe bundle. Both will be available at launch.
H1Z1: Battle Royale was built from the ground up for consoles, and has done pretty well for itself since launching in Beta on PS4 earlier this year.
