H1Z1 Map Outbreak Brings Carnage to Battle Royale Today

Plus, new skins and other goodies!


Daybreak Games has just released the new Outbreak map in H1Z1 today, which comes by way of a new update with plenty of other goodies for players. The Outbreak map, otherwise known as the remastered Z1 map, is a remake of the game's classic map with a fresh new coat of paint and a few new differences. It's available now, since there was a period of official server downtime to get everything loaded into the game, and you can check it out right after poring over this article!

The Z1 map is an 8x8km map, so there's plenty of ground to cover. But that's not all that's in store. There's also a new Apocalypse Crate that comes with the game's first legendary skin as well as a Rainbow Unicorn skin. That sounds like it should be legendary in itself, but it's not, in fact. The legendary skin is the Apocalypse AK-47, with a brand new model for the game. You can get magically delicious while outfitting your weapons properly as well. They're pretty awesome inclusions to the game, if you ask me.

If you're interested in everything else that came with today's update, you can check out the official Outbreak update and patch notes, via the H1Z1 site. There's a lot going on, and if you're jonesing for some classic H1Z1 play, it's well worth jumping in to check out the new map. Also, make sure you watch the trailer above!
