H1Z1 Battle Royale Available Free On The PS4 Now

After years of wait­ing and delays, H1Z1 bat­tle royale is now avail­able free on the Playsta­tion 4. All PS4 users can down­load H1Z1 free from the Playsta­tion store.

H1Z1 is a free bat­tle royale game that has play­ers fight­ing to be the last one left alive. The PS4 ver­sion of H1Z1 fea­tures a com­plete­ly redesigned inven­to­ry sys­tem and game play specif­i­cal­ly designed to run on the PS4. Faster mov­ing gas to keep play­ers on the run to the action, more sup­ply drops and vehi­cles spawn to keep the action and gun fight­ing going at a fran­tic rate.

The Playsta­tion 4 ver­sion does dif­fer from its PC coun­ter­part in sev­er­al ways so trans­fer­ring pur­chas­es and stuff from the PC ver­sion is not possible.

More changes will be com­ing to the H1Z1 via future patch­es, a lot of them based on the closed beta feed­back. Devel­op­er Day­break games gave a lit­tle pre­view of what to expect in the future.

  • Revive — Cur­rent­ly, Duos and Fives match­es have no revive mechan­ic for pick­ing your team­mates back up once they’ve been hurt, which can be a bit pun­ish­ing for new play­ers. We’re work­ing on bring­ing a con­sole-spe­cif­ic ver­sion of the PC revive mechan­ic to the PS4.
  • Aim accel­er­a­tion — Cur­rent­ly when you move your joy­stick, the speed at which your char­ac­ter moves and responds is a lin­ear accel­er­a­tion, which led to some feed­back that move­ment and aim­ing don’t feel very respon­sive (this caused some play­ers to crank their sen­si­tiv­i­ty all the way up). We’re work­ing to imple­ment a non-lin­ear (curve) solu­tion now, sim­i­lar to oth­er shoot­er games, to give you that more respon­sive feeling.
  • Grenade throw­ing and respon­sive­ness — Thanks to play­ers who shared their feed­back on bugs dur­ing Closed Beta test­ing, we’ve worked to resolve many of the “stick­ing” issues with grenades. We’re not done yet though, and we will be con­tin­u­ing to improve this sys­tem dur­ing Open Beta.
  • Frame rate improve­ments - This is an impor­tant one, and we pushed an update dur­ing Closed Beta to help address issues seen par­tic­u­lar­ly in team modes. We are con­tin­u­ing to work on even fur­ther opti­miza­tion to bring you a bet­ter expe­ri­ence on both the PS4 and PS4 Pro, which is why we’re cur­rent­ly stress-test­ing Solos and Fives and open­ing Duos lat­er this week with addi­tion­al improvements.
  • Swap weapon slot — We’re work­ing to pro­vide a way for play­ers to swap a weapon into their pre­ferred slot loca­tion — for exam­ple, when you pick up a shot­gun and it defaults to your left slot, we want to allow you to be able to move it into your bot­tom slot. Keep in mind that this will still require you to have the slot unlocked/open in order to move a weapon there (you’ll need to have loot­ed the cor­rect back­pack already in order to access those slots).
  • Mul­ti­ple con­troller lay­outs — We’re work­ing to sup­port sev­er­al dif­fer­ent pre­set con­troller lay­outs so you can pick which one fits your playstyle best!
  • EMP Grenade - Too many play­ers left in cars? Not if the EMP Grenade has any­thing to say about it…once imple­ment­ed, this new throw­able will shut down cars with­in its radius for a short time.
  • Air Strike Grenade — Drop­ping this throw­able will call in an air strike at its loca­tion for max­i­mum destruc­tion — don’t stand near the flare!

Keep an eye out for new updates and infor­ma­tion as it becomes avail­able. Now get out there and kick some ass.
