H1Z1 has officially left open beta and launched on PlayStation 4 as a free-to-play game, Daybreak Games announced. The update, which converts the early access version to an official release, makes launch bundles and a season pass available, as well as new things to do in the world before the fight for survival begins.
Battle Passes are available across three tiers: free, premium, and PS Plus. You can purchase the Premium for $5.50 / €5.50. Plus members will be given that level for free and level progression can be transferred between tiers. You can also purchase a Viper Starter Bundle ($5 / €5) or Hardline Deluxe Bundle ($35 / €35). The Deluxe bundle includes a Premium Battle Pass. Both will be offered at a launch discount until September 4.
Also marking the event are a few new in-game items to purchase with an airdrop ticket. A new explosive RPG from gold-level airdrops can help you take out vehicles, and a SOCOM sniper rifle from purple airdrops gives you another long-range option. A new ARV can help transport you and your entire team, and even includes a hatch for one of the squadmates to fire from.
“Everyone here at Daybreak Games is thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response to H1Z1’s debut on PS4,” said H1Z1 producer Terrence Yee in the announcement. “10 million new players in our first month in open beta is an incredible milestone, and our entire development team has worked tirelessly to build on that early success. We’re beyond excited to officially launch H1Z1 on PS4—this is our fully realized vision for battle royale on console.”
