H1Z1 Goes Free 2 Play

Daybreak Games has announced H1Z1 is going free-to-play.

Watch the H1Z1 ‘Free To Play’ Trailer:

The battle royale game will be available for download on PC free of charge today, starting at around 10am PT/1pm ET/6pm UK (March 9 at 5am AET).

As a thank you to those who supported H1Z1 during its time in Early Access, everyone who already purchased the game will receive the “H1Z1 Appreciation Pack,” which includes 10,000 Skulls and 10 Victory Crates, as well as a Gasrunner Hoodie, Bloom Survivor T-Shirt, and Splinter Camo ARV.

Additionally, Bronze, Silver, and Limited Edition Gold Battle Royale packs have been added to coincide with H1Z1’s free-to-play launch. Details about the packs can be found on Steam.

H1Z1 officially launched out of Steam Early Access last week, complete with a new mode called Auto Royale. In addition to Auto Royale, which pits up to 30 teams of four in a battle where only one vehicle is left standing, a host of new features have been added to H1Z1, including a mini map, a refined airdrop system, and more.
