H1Z1 Coming to PS4 Soon

H1Z1: Fortnite Battle Royale has a big new rival on PS4 - and it's also FREE to play

Alongside the announcement of the game's imminent arrival on the PS4, the developer has added a new take on power progression during matches. While the game won't be in open beta until next month, players can sign up now for the first Closed Beta, which starts this month. "The removal of inventory management, the removal of crafting, salvaging, reworking how the loot system works; all of these were cognizant ideas around 'what do we need to do to preserve the core feeling of H1Z1 and just make it feel good on a controller?'"

Daybreak Games today announced that H1Z1, the original standalone battle royale game, is coming to PlayStation 4 with an open beta launching in May.

H1Z1 now features a grab-and-go equipment system, simplifying loot collection and inventory management; a familiar radial weapon menu so players can quickly switch between guns and grenades; and a revamped HUD that delivers vital information at-a-glance. The move to console isn't unexpected, seeing that other battle royal games have made the move to console as well.




Capitalizing on increased mobility, the PS4 edition takes H1Z1's signature fast-paced combat one step further by introducing new gameplay progression mechanics.

Gameplay has also changed compared to the PC, moving to shorter 15 minute matches, in order to facilitate the faster, more action-oriented gameplay console gamers are accustomed to. "This includes six new guns: the KH43, Marauder, MK46, Combat Shotgun, CNQ-09 and Scout Rifle. Airdrops serve as the primary way to secure higher powered armor, which have been retooled to provide players with a health bonus". This also grants you a dynamic theme at the time of purchase. Just find one of the many special crates hidden throughout the map containing level 2 and 3 gear. PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive 20% off their preorder purchase.

As for technical information, H1Z1 is said to be optimized for the PS4 hardware, but the only concrete detail is that the PS4 Pro can run the game at 60 frames per second. Should you so choose, you can preorder an H1Z1 bundle for $29.99, granting you unique cosmetic items in the Open Beta.
