H1Z1: Battle Royale’s open beta phase has proved to be very, very popular on PS4 with millions of people downloading and playing their take on the genre. That open beta is coming to an end on 7th August, but don’t worry, because that date also marks the game’s official launch on PS4!
For the official launch, they’re adding tons of new things to the game, including new weapons and vehicles, trophy support and the first season of the Battle Pass. There will also be new cosmetics bundles for the game.
Speaking of cosmetics, did you see and enter our Deluxe Founder’s Bundle giveaway?
New weapons include the RPG and SOCOM semi-automatic sniper rifle, to cater to anti-vehicle play and add another option for long range combat, while the ARC is a personnel carrier capable of fitting a whole fives squad, and with a hatch on top.
The Battle Pass Season 1 launches with three lines of rewards – Free, Premium and PlayStation Plus (because you can play F2P games without PS+) – and has thirty tiers to work through. You will be able to unlock tiers through gameplay or in-game purchases, and this will be the way to unlock a bunch of new cosmetics in the game.
Alongside the Battle Pass, two new launch bundles will also be up for purchase, with the kung-fu inspired Viper Starter bundle and more military Hardline Deluxe.
