H1Z1: Battle Royale officially launches on PS4

From Beta to Battle.

Daybreak Game's H1Z1: Battle Royale has now left Open Beta and officially launched on PlayStation 4.

The console version of the Battle Royale game launched in Open Beta over two months ago, making it one of the fastest titles to transfer from an early access version to full release. As with the PC release, H1Z1: Battle Royale is free to play, launching with a Battle Pass and a variety of bundles players can purchase. Much like Fortnite and now PUBG, the pass offers a range of unlockable cosmetics that can be earned by completing challenges. The bundles come with a selection of Cosmetics to dress your character in too.

To celebrate the graduation to release, Daybreak has released a new trailer for the official launch which shows off a number of funky outfits available in the game. We'll take one unicorn hat and space cat hoodie, thanks. Check it out below:

Here's the description of the update and the bundles available at launch from Daybreak's press release:

  • Battle Pass Season 1: PS4 players can now unlock up to 30 rewards levels across 3 distinct lines (free, premium, and PS Plus). Battle Pass Season 1 premium line can be purchased for $5.49 / €5.49, while all PS Plus members will receive the PS Plus line included in membership. Level progression will carry over between lines.
  • Two New Weapons: The explosive RPG can be found in gold tier airdrops, and specializes in taking out vehicles. The deadly SOCOM Sniper Rifle can be found in purple tier airdrops, and offers a new tactical option for long-range gunfights.
  • New Vehicle: The ARV fits a full fives team and includes a hatch for a squad mate to fire out the top – making it the ultimate vehicle for squad-based gameplay.
  • New Launch Bundles: Players can now customize their character to the max through the new Viper Starter bundle ($4.99 USD / €4.99) or Hardline Deluxe bundle, which includes Premium Battle Pass ($34.99 USD / €34.99). Both Launch bundles are now available at a special launch discount until September 4 on the PlayStation Store.
