Daybreak Games announces brand new Season 3 “Beyond Royale” update for H1Z1
Gameplay improvements and more
Daybreak Games has announced season 3 of H1Z1: Battle Royale on PlayStation 4.
The free expansion includes the largest update to date of H1Z1 on PS4 and features two new game modes, brand new Ranked leader boards, a new 100 tier Battle Pass as well as a host of new features including redesigned lobbies and a new front-end UI as well as game play improvements.
The Season 3 highlights include:
- FFA Deathmatch: This new game mode blends H1Z1’s unique brand of fast-paced action and massive-scale combat into an epic free-for-all experience. Fifty players drop into a tight combat zone with instant respawn and a rotating arsenal of weaponry, aiming to reach 25 kills before the timer runs out.
- Ranked Leaderboards: Season 3 introduces a new ranking system to go along with seasonal leaderboards for each of the core battle royale game modes (Solos, Duos, and Fives). Ranks are broadly categorised across six tiers (Bronze to Master), while leaderboards will also track kills, matches played, and other statistics. All rankings will reset at the end of Season 3.
- Training Grounds: Vets and newcomers alike can hone their skills and experiment with new loadouts in this new training mode. Master the range and recoil of each weapon and throwable before jumping into competitive ranked modes.
- Season 3 Battle Pass: Featuring 100 reward tiers and more than 200 new cosmetic items (including new item types and nine full outfits), Season 3 introduces the largest H1Z1 Battle Pass yet! As with previous seasons, PlayStation Plus subscribers get an additional reward track where they can unlock exclusive rewards.
Season 3 “Beyond Royale” will begin on 21 February, and you can watch the trailer for it below:
