It hasn't been that long since H1Z1: Battle Royale went into open beta on PlayStation 4. But Daybreak appears to be satisfied with what they've seen, because they now look to be on the fast track to full release.

On Thursday, Daybreak announced that the PS4 version of its battle royale shooter is ready to exit beta in August. To celebrate, PS4 players can pick up the new RPG and SOCOM Sniper Rifle weapons. Those looking to travel the map in style can now find the new ARV vehicle, which can fit an entire five-person squad and also provide room along the top for one person to shoot any nearby hostiles.

Battle Pass Season 1 will become available at launch, with different reward lines for free players, premium players, and PlayStation Plus users. The premium line will be made available for $5.49. The Viper Starter and Hardline Deluxe bundles will also be made available for purchase for $34.99.

More information on H1Z1: Battle Royale 1.0 can be found on PlayStation.Blog. Those looking for even more on this game can also check out Blake Morse's interview with Daybreak's Tony Morton from prior to the beta's release. H1Z1: Battle Royale will officially launch on PS4 on August 7.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
