Days after Daybreak Games announced that the open beta for H1Z1 on PlayStation 4 crossed one million players, it’s now celebrating another milestone. On May 26th, the studio confirmed that its Battle Royale-style title had seen more than 4.5 million players on PS4.
To thank players, Daybreak has provided Blue Barbed Hellfire 4-6 in players’ inventories. Furthermore, Duos is now available for players with the most recent patch (along with different fixes).
H1Z1 recently left Steam Early Access, having started out as a zombie survival title before being split off into Just Survive and King of the Kill. The latter would be renamed to H1Z1 and launch as a Battle Royale title with the vehicle-heavy mode Auto Royale.
Suffice to say, there wasn’t much enthusiasm on Steam and H1Z1 went free to play shortly after. It did very little to help and the company suffered lay-offs in the meantime. However, it appears that the reception to the PS4 open beta has been strong. Can Daybreak continue with this momentum? We’ll find out in the coming months.
[PS4 Open Beta] As a THANK YOU to all 4.5 million+ of you who have joined us since Open Beta launch, we've dropped the Blue Barbed Hellfire 4-6 right into your inventory!
