H1Z1 on PS4 is true battle royale mayhem. We have reimagined the game for PlayStation 4 and have designed it to accentuate the essentials of battle royale that make the genre so exciting to watch and play. We have added key gameplay differentiators to keep the game frantic and fun — an action shooter’s dream of fast-paced battle royale.

Take a look at the Playstation 4 trailer below featuring the closed beta:
Whether H1Z1 will do well as it’s competitor Fornite who has already been on PS4 platform for some time now as a free game, will be uncertain as Fornite continues to dominate the scene and other battle royale games enter the genre.
