H1Z1 PS4 Open Beta Starts Next Month

H1Z1 PS4 Open Beta Starts Next Month

You can also sign up for the closed beta, which takes place this month, through the link.

The game's producer, Terrence Yee, is excited to bring the shooter to PS4: "H1Z1 on PS4 is true battle royale mayhem".

According to the developer, the free-to-play battle royale title is coming to PlayStation 4. Battle royale should be about the adrenaline rush you get from being one of the last few remaining, so we've drilled down to that core gameplay experience to keep players engaged in all the action.

Developed and published by DayBreak Games, H1Z1 rose to popularity in 2015, but it struggled to keep its fan base with competition from the likes of PUBG and Fortnite. Considering Sony's early access system isn't the same as PC or Xbox One it's likely they won't allow a full release until the game is fully functioning.

H1Z1 could be considered somewhat of an underdog in the battle royal communities that have caught the wind of success, but that doesn't mean it's lagging by any means, in fact, innovation and player engagement seems to be the focus.

North Korea's nuclear issue to be in spotlight at inter-Korean summit
Kim Jong Un took power weeks after Gadhafi's gruesome death at the hands of rebel forces amid a popular uprising in October 2011. Trump personally responded on Twitter that it was "good news" and that he looked forward to his summit with Kim.

In order to work on the PS4, H1Z1 has been rebuilt from the ground up to include a new control scheme, an overhauled UI and a simplified inventory management system.

Mass airdrops are released throughout the map, through which players may pick up familiar weapons like the AK and AR, as well as the new KH43, Marauder, Combat Shotgun, CNQ-09, Scout Rifle and MK46. The notable fast-paced combat is slightly amped up while the airdrop system has been redefined to keep the intensity alive per match.

H1Z1 will launch for open beta on PlayStation 4 on May 22, 2018. This also grants you a dynamic theme at the time of purchase.

Don't worry, special crates will be spread across the map featuring level 2 and level 3 weapons and gear.

Morton also said that a lot of the current footage for the PS4 version of H1Z1 is pre-alpha and that, on the PS4 Pro, H1Z1 is locked at 60fps while on the original PS4 its locked at a minimum of 45fps. Should you so choose, you can preorder an H1Z1 bundle for $29.99, granting you unique cosmetic items in the Open Beta.
