In addition, Daybreak announced the Battle Pass Season1 which lets players unlock new content by completing missions. There are three reward lines available to players for free, for a premium, and for PS Plus subscribers. There will also be two new launch bundles, a Hardline Deluxe Bundle and Viber Starter Bundle to let players customize their characters before jumping in.
H1Z1, or as Daybreak likes calling it, "the original Battle Royale experience" first came out on PlayStation 4 completely rebuilt for the console shooter. This means that aspects of the game found on the PC version were either streamlined or stripped away completely to deliver a better console experience.
Daybreak brought the battle royale to PS4 with H1Z1. After the popularity of games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite: Battle Royale, it seems that the race to enter the genre has grown more crowded. H1Z1 appears to be a popular game on PS4, surpassing 10 million players since the launch of its open beta in May 2018.
