H1Z1 rode the Battle Royale Wave early on the PC with a long-lasting pre-access time, but finally got an official release in February this year. Developer Daybreak Games, however, is preparing to bring his shooter to PlayStation 4 at the last second. The company announced that it will launch an open beta on May 22 that includes many console-specific features and enhancements.
Changes to the PS4 release include a redesigned control plan that includes a radial inventory menu, an optimized user interface, and a simplified bagging system. One of the most notable changes is the complete removal of the crafting system, which is a core element of the gameplay of the original PC version. On this platform, clothing and helmets can be disassembled and combined with other materials to make important equipment such as makeshift armor and explosive arrows. Daybreak says that the elimination of the game should help maintain the pace of the games and focus on action.
Forcing a faster pace, lethal gas zones move faster. As the matches progress, a circle closes to force players into smaller safe areas, and the new behavior of the gas zones should keep players in motion, although it has not been described exactly how it is being changed by the PC version. 1
In addition, delivery trends are changing, and this will be the primary method of obtaining high-performance armor and weapons in a match and accidentally falling out of the air, as well as a handful of new weapons n such as KH43, Marauder, Combat Shotgun, CNQ-09, Scout Rifle and MK46. Specialist crates should be a big spoilsport as these rare drops contain "Level 2 and Level 3 weapons and equipment" and emit a light radio noise nearby.
As for the technical information, H1Z1 is said to be optimized for the PS4 hardware, but the only specific detail is that the PS4 Pro can run the game at 60 frames per second.
While the game is free, you can now pre-order a package through May 22 open beta, which includes in-game cosmetics and a dynamic theme for $ 30. PlayStation Plus members receive 20% off the bundle
