H1Z1: Battle Royale leaving open beta

The battle royale video game will finally leave the open beta phase and launch officially on Aug. 7. It will have a lot of new features like weapons and a vehicle. Two new weapons will be introduced: the explosive RPG and the deadly SOCOM semi-automatic sniper rifle.

The RPG is pretty effective against vehicles, while the SOCOM is a combination of the Scout Rifle and the M40 Sniper Rifle. This new sniper rifle will add another tactical layer to long-range gunfights. These are actually the weapons that the gaming community was asking for.

A new vehicle was also introduced: the ARV. This is a powerful personnel carrier that fits five people in it. It has a hatch that can be used by a marksman that they can pop out of.

Season 1 Battle Pass revealed

The Battle Pass Season 1 will be available at launch with three reward lines and 30 rewards tiers. Players who are interested to get these rewards can unlock the tiers by earning XP through gameplay. They can also try to do it with in-game purchases. The Battle Pass Season 1 premium line will be $5.59 and all the PS Plus members will get the PS Plus line for free.

Bundles introduced

The game developer revealed two new bundles to the game. These bundles are the Viper Start bundle and the Hardline Deluxe bundle. The prior bundle has a price tag of $4.99, while the latter bundle costs $34.99.
