A full release is scheduled for later this year.
If you need more Battle Royale in your life, have we got good news for you: the H1Z1 battle royale open beta is now available on PlayStation 4.
You can play the beta for free, with a full release scheduled for later this year. The PS4 version of the battle royale game puts a heavier emphasis on action with faster matches, and more vehicles and weapons.
Matches will now only last for 15 minutes or less. PS4 players can also look forward to trying out six new guns, including the KH43 and Marauder, a revamped UI, and a new take on power progression with an emphasis on pursuing mass airdrops.
There’s also a new control system allowing you to quickly switch between your guns and grenades, as well as a “grab-and-go equipment system” designed to make collecting loot “on the run” easier.
Daybreak created three limited-edition bundles for the PS4 beta: Starter Bundle ($5 USD), Standard Bundle ($20 USD), and the Deluxe Bundle ($50 USD). If you’re a PlayStation Plus member, you’ll receive one free bundle which comes with two exclusive Nemesis Crate items – the tactical body armor and explorer backpack.
Be sure to read our H1Z1 review to find out why we think the game “does just enough to set itself apart from the Battle Royale crowd.”
