Looks like PUBG and Fornite won’t be only Battle Royale games on console! Today, Daybreak Games announced that H1Z1 will arrive as a free to play game on Playstation 4 NEXT MONTH!!
In a Playstation Blog post, Terrance Yee, a producer on H1Z1, made the announcement. In his announcement, he said “This is the battle-royale game for fans of action console shooters. Battle Royale should be about the adrenaline rush you get from being one of the last few remaining, so we’ve drilled down to that core gameplay experience to keep players engaged in all the action. This means more guns, more vehicles, more weapons, a streamlined UI, familiar console controls and faster matches—it’s pure battle royale.”
He went on to discuss some additions to this version of the game. Players will engage in more frequent airdrops and will have 6 new guns: the KH43, Marauder, MK46, Combat Shotgun, CNQ-09, and Scout Rifle. The gas will be dynamically based on population and will move at a quicker pace. The goal will be 15-minute matches.
H1Z1 will start with a Closed Beta, which you can sign up for at H1Z1.com/PlayStation4. The Open Beta will start May 22nd.
This news is very intriguing. Will it fit on console? I think H1Z1 plays better with mouse and keyboard, so it would be very interesting to see the gameplay on PS4 and the controller configuration.
Are you going to give it a try? Let us know in the comments!
