H1Z1 Hits 1.5 Million Players on PlayStation 4
Daybreak Games has announced that H1Z1, the company’s groundbreaking battle royale game, was played by more than 1.5 million fans within the 24-hour period of launch on PlayStation 4. Now available as a free download on the PlayStation Store, the battle royale shooter is currently in Open Beta with a full release scheduled for later this year.
Redesigned for the PS4, the all-new H1Z1 features a larger weapon arsenal, fully reworked UI, and faster-paced gameplay. Frequent and increasingly lucrative airdrops for higher-powered weapons and armor keep the action moving ahead of the encroaching toxic gas. An updated control system allows players to quickly interact with their environment via radial weapon menu, while a grab-and-go equipment system makes loot-collection easier on the run.
“This is an incredible milestone and we want to thank all of our player who helped make this possible,” said H1Z1 Producer Terrence Yee. “We believe we’ve found the right balance for battle royale on console and players have responded positively to our reimagining of H1Z1. We will continue to refine the game based on feedback from Open Beta to ensure the best experience possible for our actively growing community.”
