The game - which has enjoyed an extended period of open beta - is now available for all to play and download from the PlayStation Store.

H1Z1: Battle Royale is currenlty available on PC and PS4, with an Xbox One version now in development.

H1Z1 producer Terrence Yee said the entire development team has worked tirelessly to build on the game's early success, adding that they're thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response to H1Z1's PS4 debut.

The apocalyptic battle royale has been in open beta since May this year, with developer Daybreak Games boasting over 10 million new players in the first month alone.

The full release of H1Z1 should hopefully satisfy those PS4 owners, as battle royale game options on PS4 are pretty slim at the moment. You'll also find RPGs, SOCOM Sniper Rifles and a new ARV transport to carry your five-person squads. This bundle includes the premium battle pass and is $34.99.

The Pelicans have been seeking depth at center following DeMarcus Cousins' departure in free agency for Golden State. The deal will have a partial guarantee on this season and a team-option for the 2019-20 season.

Battle Pass Season 1: PS4 players can now unlock up to 30 rewards levels across 3 distinct lines (free, premium, and PS Plus).

On the other hand, the premium pass can be purchased for $5.49 (other pricing TBC) and will offer the ability to earn more rewards. Playstation Plus members can also get some free bonus content in the forms of different PS Plus packs that have different cosmetic items and an emote. Finally, the company is also offering new launch bundles, including a Viper Starter bundle for $4.99 United States dollars all the way up to a Premium Battle Pass at $34.99 USD.

Both launch bundles are available at a launch discount until September 4. That means there is a good chunk of the PS4 community that is looking for other battle royale offerings outside of Fortnite.

H1Z1, described by Daybreak as the original standalone battle royale shooter, has officially exited open beta and is now a fully free-to-play game on PlayStation 4. The crafting system has also been removed from the game.

Capitalizing on increased mobility, the PS4 edition takes H1Z1's signature fast-paced combat one step further by introducing new gameplay progression mechanics.
