Matches will now only last as long as 15 minutes, as the gas will move faster to increase the speed of the game and allow for more intense matches. "The removal of inventory management, the removal of crafting, salvaging, reworking how the loot system works; all of these were cognizant ideas around 'what do we need to do to preserve the core feeling of H1Z1 and just make it feel good on a controller?'"

When it comes to the games new progression mechanics, players will only be able to loot six level-one weapons at the start of a match and must decide which airdrops to pursue if they want better weapons and gear.

In a press release today, Daybreak Games has revealed that H1Z1 has been tuned specifically around console and the console gamer.

Mass airdrops are released throughout the map, through which players may pick up familiar weapons like the AK and AR, as well as the new KH43, Marauder, Combat Shotgun, CNQ-09, Scout Rifle and MK46.

H1Z1, the free to play Battle Royale game on Steam from Daybreak Games, is coming to PS4. And unlike the PC counterpart, the PS4 version of H1Z1 does not feature a crafting system. "Airdrops serve as the primary way to secure higher powered armor, which have been retooled to provide players with a health bonus". For a chance to get in on the closed beta, simply sign up at the H1Z1 website. On top of that, those with an active PlayStation Plus membership will receive 20% off their pre-order.

H1Z1 is finally making its way to consoles for the first time ever. The game features a new weapon progression system, fully reworked UI, and new weapons and gear. "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", said H1Z1's producer, Terrence Yee.

These airdrops will be dropping everywhere, but special crates containing level two and level three weapons will be hidden across the map as well.

As for technical information, H1Z1 is said to be optimized for the PS4 hardware, but the only concrete detail is that the PS4 Pro can run the game at 60 frames per second.
