The H1Z1 player count is rapidly rising since release. At launch thousands struggled to get online to play the new free-to-play shooter, where the servers went offline, but now things have stabilized, the action is hotting up!
H1Z1 Battle Royale launched into beta PS4 in May with a free bundle for PS Plus subscribers. Featuring a Battle Royale mechanic, up to 100 players get dropped onto a map and fight for to be the last man or team alive, using weapons, vehicles and equipment.
H1Z1 Player Count Is Impressive On PS4
According to developer, Daybreak, the peak H1Z1 player count – the amount of people playing the game at the same time – rose to over 200,000. The developer tweeted:
“We are currently getting more hardware spun up to support the 200,000+ concurrent players online – THANK YOU for the overwhelming support for H1Z1.”
It's an impressive figure for launch day, though the game has a long way to go to compete with Fortnite's highest concurrent player figure (3.4 million). To find out more, check out our H1Z1 feature, where we interviewed Daybreak to talk about combat and future plans.
