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

H1Z1 started the entire Battle Royale thing years ago before PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite were born, with the game arriving on the PS4 on May 22 in beta form.

In early March the game became free to play in order to entice more players back, and the innagural H1Z1 Pro League launched in Las Vegas in April 2018, with fifteen fairly high profile organizations taking part in the franchise competition. A Closed Beta starts later this month.

The control scheme for H1Z1 on PS4 has been tailor-made to keep players focused on the action.

Get ready for another big drop, Daybreak Game Company has announced that their beloved battle royal franchise H1Z1 is coming to PS4 completely free to play.


'We have reimagined the game for PlayStation 4 and have designed it to accentuate the essentials of Battle Royale that make the genre so exciting to watch and play, ' claims producer Terrence Yee. There will be a heavier emphasis on action, featuring more vehicles, guns, weapons, and faster matches.

For those not looking forward to fighting over airdrops, the game will also have special crates hidden around the map (on the ground) that contain high-level weapons and armour.

In a press release today, Daybreak Games has revealed that H1Z1 has been tuned specifically around console and the console gamer. There will also be a handful of new weapons like the KH43, Marauder, Combat Shotgun, CNQ-09, Scout Rifle, and MK46. Matches will now only last as long as 15 minutes, as the gas will move faster to increase the speed of the game and allow for more intense matches.

WCCFTech interviewed Tony Morton, Lead Combat and Systems Designer for the project at Daybreak Games, who said: "The PS4 Pro is locked in at 60 frames per second, the regular PlayStation 4 is locked in at a minimum of 45FPS". This will include a dynamic theme at time of purchase, PS Plus members will receive an extra 20% off their preorder. Should you so choose, you can preorder an H1Z1 bundle for $29.99, granting you unique cosmetic items in the Open Beta.
