Don’t be fooled by the “new” Z1 Battle Royale. It’s just H1Z1 again.

, | News

H1Z1 is now Z1 Battle Royale. It’s the third re-launch of the game since its 2015 early access launch as H1Z1 by Daybreak Game Company. In early 2016, it was split into H1Z1: Just Survive and H1Z1: King of the Hill, then both projects were changed in 2017 to Just Survive and H1Z1 respectively. Now under development with NantG, Z1 Battle Royale supposedly reverses many changes that angered the core players during the last year, and adds all the free-to-play battle royale genre goodness one would expect like goofy cosmetics, loot crates, and seasonal play.

“Since taking over development of the game in September the team here at NantG has worked with a firey [sic] passion to bring back the feel that was lost with the Combat Update.”

The new Z1 Battle Royale roadmap is available here. Look out, Apex Legends! Your competitor has arrived.
