PS4's H1Z1: Battle Royale Proving To Be Popular; New Update Out Now

More than 10 million players just got a brand new toy.


Daybreak Games' H1Z1: Battle Royale just got an update on PS4. It adds a revive mechanic to the game, as well as aim acceleration adjustments and a new weapon. The weapon, called the Airstrike Signal, allows players to target an area for aerial bombardment.

Daybreak Games announced H1Z1: Battle Royale also recently surpassed a milestone. There are now more than 10 million players playing the battle royale on PS4, and they've invested more than 102 million hours in the first month of its open beta.

To celebrate, Daybreak Games is awarding a Darkfire Pickup Truck and Sunrise Parachute in-game skin to every player who's downloaded H1Z1. The rewards are free, and available to anyone who logged into H1Z1 prior to 11:59pm PT on June 27. Both in-game items will download directly into players' inventory this weekend.

H1Z1 is available for free on PC, while its console counterpart H1Z1: Battle Royale is in open beta on PS4. The game offers the same fast-paced, competitive battle royale gameplay found in both PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite. H1Z1 differentiates itself from its competitors with a wider assortment of vehicles and a more arcade-like style of play. H1Z1 has larger battlefields and players aren't damaged when they jump from vehicles, putting an emphasis on quickly moving around and leaping into massive firefights.
