Terrence Yee, a producer of H1Z1, announced the game would be coming to PS4 as a free-to-play title next month. He also outlined some of what people can expect when playing it. Although this isn’t a unique concept, it seems there will be some differences between this Battle Royal and others.
Yee stated the team was focusing on “core gameplay experience to keep players engaged in all the action. This means more guns, more vehicles, more weapons, a streamlined UI, familiar console controls and faster matches—it’s pure battle royale.”
Air drops are a big deal in this Battle Royal. Expect to see them frequently and in masses, which you need for better gear and weapons. There are also six new guns available: the KH43, Marauder, MK46, Combat Shotgun, CNQ-09 and Scout Rifle. Instead of a storm, (like Fortnite) there is gas, which will obviously speed up the process of finding other players. Matches will only last 15 minutes.
Currently, H1Z1 is in closed beta for PS4, but you can sign up for a spot, here. There’ll be an open beta available for all PS4 players on May 22nd.
