H1Z1 Launches Out of Early Access with New Mode 'Auto Royale'

H1Z1 Launches Out of Early Access with New Mode 'Auto Royale'

Now the developers of Daybreak Games has decided that the shooter has had enough turmoil and can leave the "Early access". They've improved the quality of life features, updated the UI, and introduced the new Auto Royale mode that sees up to 30 teams of four battling it out to be the last vehicle standing.

Additionally, Auto Royale features a variety of new power-ups, including defensive items like fix kits and fire extinguishers, evasive drops like smoke screens and turbo boosts, and combat items like land mines and corrosive smoke.

In February 2016, the game was split into two separate games - H1Z1: King of the Kill (battle royale) and H1Z1: Just Survive (survival MMO). "The next year, we created the first battle royal esports league and became the second esport to ever air on broadcast television". It's a new mode that's launching alongside the move to 1.o as the game leaves early access.

"Auto Royale doesn't rinse and repeat what is now available on the market, it turns the genre on its head with a fresh approach", said H1Z1 General Manager Anthony Castoro. H1Z1 releases from Early Access today and will cost $19.99 on Steam. H1Z1 has to find ways to stand out. Auto Royale launches in beta today.

Any lapsed H1Z1 players out there? Auto Royale also features a number of other mode-exclusive features, including a Light Machine Gun and different power-up drops. There are also a variety of power-ups, including Defensive ones like vehicle fix kits, Evasive ones like turbo boosts, and Combative ones like landmines.

Again, we want to thank you, our fans and players across the globe who have been with us from the beginning and for continuing to play the game over the years, seeing us through even the bumpy roads along the way.

Drops include vehicle fix kits, environmental buffs, fire extinguishers, and vehicle armor. Additionally, the level will include various traps like landmines, corrosive smoke, and oil spills.

The core H1Z1 game is also getting a few major updates. Finally, H1Z1's airdrops have been adjusted to drop at a more frequent rate and with higher value items. One new feature in the base game is tactical deployment, which lets players choose where to parachute in at the start in addition to providing a heat map that gives players an idea of where others chose to spawn.

Mini-map: Players now have the option to turn on a mini-map to help them navigate the world.

Daybreak Games intends to continue updating H1Z1 with new content, including a remastered version of the popular Z1 map, as well as additional support for organized competitive play. Xbox One and PS4 versions are in the works, but no release date has been announced.
