Previews: H1Z1 Launching On PS4, Open Beta Begins May 22

Free-to-play battle royale shooter H1Z1 is coming to PS4 next month H1Z1 Battle Royale starts free-to-play open beta on PS4 this May

Daybreak are promising that the game will run at 60fps on PS4 Pro, which presumably implies it won't on a standard PlayStation 4. The UI has also been revamped. Now, Daybreak Games has announced its battle royale shooter will indeed be launching on Sony's box with a new version designed specifically for console play. It all sounds great in theory and just might be what Daybreak Games needs to return to their once pride and glory, but it seems only PS4 players will get the chance to play this new version of the formerly dominant battle royale game. "The removal of inventory management, the removal of crafting, salvaging, reworking how the loot system works; all of these were cognizant ideas around 'what do we need to do to preserve the core feeling of H1Z1 and just make it feel good on a controller?'" There will be a heavier emphasis on action, featuring more vehicles, guns, weapons, and faster matches.

Of course, the forthcoming PlayStation 4 version of H1Z1 is so much more than a simple rehash of a PC game brought to consoles. The crafting system has also been removed from the game. While the game won't be in open beta until next month, players can sign up now for the first Closed Beta, which starts this month.

You'll be able to find out for yourself though when the open beta starts.

Capitalizing on increased mobility, the PS4 edition takes H1Z1's signature fast-paced combat one step further by introducing new gameplay progression mechanics.

"With the new weapon progression mechanics", the press release reads, "players only have access to loot six level-one weapons at the start of the match and must strategically decide which airdrops to pursue if they want better level weapons and gear". There will also be a handful of new weapons like the KH43, Marauder, Combat Shotgun, CNQ-09, Scout Rifle, and MK46.

PlayStation Plus Members will receive 20% off their preorder purchase, too. Players can purchase the pre-order bundle at $29.99, which contains bonuses such as the H1Z1 pre-order theme and other cosmetic items.
