Details Revealed for H1Z1’s PS4 Battle Pass Launch Next Week
Last week it was announced that H1Z1: Battle Royale would be blasting its way out of open beta, complete with the first season of the Battle Pass. Now, developer Daybreak Games have shared some details about the Battle Pass, alongside answers to some frequently asked questions.
Though H1Z1 is a battle royale title that’s been out on Steam for quite some time, it launched on PS4 just a few short months ago and has seen huge success. Like Fortnite, it’s a battle royale game that is complete free-to-play, and don’t worry, when the game launches in just a few days it will remain free. “Season 1 of the Battle Pass will be starting on Tuesday, August 7 alongside H1Z1’s launch out of Open Beta on the PS4! With 3 different reward lines and 30 reward tiers, it’s time to gear up and get serious.”
Though we’ve already received a few details about the Battle Pass when it was announced the game would be blasting out of open beta, Daybreak Games has shared a few more details. First, season one of the Battle Pass will last from August 7th until Tuesday, October 16th, so it seems you’ll have plenty of time to earn rewards. Second, and rather unfortunately, all Daily Challenge progress will be reset at launch. Here’s what Daybreak had to say, “On launch day, all Daily Challenges on all accounts will be reset, meaning you will see your Tutorial Challenges available for completion again (even if you completed them previously). Your Tutorial Challenges now grant Medals – they’re a great way to get started on progressing your Battle Pass tier! Daily Challenges after your Tutorial Challenges will grant Medals as well.” You can check out a few more Battle Pass details below and full for answers to everything H1Z1, you can check out the official website here.
What options are available for the Battle Pass?
There are 3 reward lines available – Free, Premium, and PlayStation Plus. You’ll get the Free one automatically just by logging in and playing during Season 1, and if you’re a PlayStation Plus member, that reward line will be automatically unlocked for you upon login as well. The Premium reward line can be purchased either through the in-game Battle Pass menu or through the PlayStation Store (you’ll get a bonus item for purchasing through the PlayStation Store!)
How do I level up my Battle Pass?
You can level up your Battle Pass with Medals, which you can earn in two different ways:
- Daily Challenges – You can earn Medals directly from completing your Daily Challenges each day.
- Season Level Advancement – You will continue to earn XP from regular gameplay, such as getting kills or winning a match. This XP will feed directly into your Season Level (the maximum Season Level is 100). Each Season Level you gain grants you Medals as a reward, with milestone levels (the ones that end in 0 or 5) granting you even more Medals.
- It takes 10 Medals to complete 1 tier of the Battle Pass (regardless of level or line). If you have the Premium line, you can also unlock tiers using Crowns through a direct purchase in the Battle Pass menu.
