H1Z1 is set to exit open-beta and fully release on PS4 platforms next month on August 7 with new weapons, a new vehicle and more. The game’s producer, Terrence Yee, announced the arrival on PS4 through a new blog post, stating that alongside the release, players can expect two new weapons: an RPG and a SOCOM semi-automatic sniper rifle.
“The RPG has particular utility against vehicles, while the SOCOM slots in between the Scout Rifle and M40 Sniper Rifle (now a one-shot kill to the head, even with a helmet) to add another tactical layer to long-range gunfights”, the blog post reads. “These two new weapons fulfill specific combat roles our community has been asking for, and we can’t wait for players to get their hands on them.”
Alongside the two new weapons, a new vehicle has also been added into the mix. The ARV Vehicle offers seating space for 5 players, as well as an opening on the roof for the team’s marksman.
H1Z1 is out now for PC and PS4.
