H1Z1 Launches With New Auto Royale Mode

Daybreak Games announces the official release of H1Z1 after an extended early access run for the survival shooter, as they highlight the game's role in spurring the current mania for Battle Royale games. This is marked by the launch of a new Auto Royale mode, which is said to be in beta, so fans of works-in-progress games are still covered. A Launch Day Producer's Letter has lots of details and this post outlines what's changed for the release version. This trailer shows off Auto Royale, and the announcement has all the details:

Daybreak Games® today announced the official launch of H1Z1®, the original standalone battle royale game that sparked a worldwide phenomenon. H1Z1 is now available on Steam for Windows PC with a brand-new game mode, Auto Royale™, injecting high-octane vehicular mayhem into the genre.

“In 2016, we did something unheard of - we split a successful game into two products and introduced the world to the first standalone battle royale game. The next year, we created the first battle royale esports league and became the second esport to ever air on broadcast television. This year, we continue to push this young genre forward with the introduction of Auto Royale,” said H1Z1 General Manager Anthony Castoro. “Auto Royale doesn’t rinse and repeat what is currently available on the market, it turns the genre on its head with a fresh approach - arcadey, vehicle-only battle royale unlike anything anyone has experienced before.”

Inspired by H1Z1’s fast-paced vehicle play, the new game mode – Auto Royale – features up to 30 teams of four in a battle to be the last vehicle standing. Teams speed around the massive map looking for power-ups, weapons, ammo, fuel, and health as they try to out-shoot, out-drive, and out-last the competition. The mode introduces two new vehicles to H1Z1, a sedan and an armoured recon vehicle (ARV), and a variety of features to cause vehicular havoc, including ramps, land mines, oil slicks, turbo boosts, vehicle jumps, corrosive smoke, and much more.

AUTO ROYALE GAME MODE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Two New Vehicles: Players can choose from two vehicles in Auto Royale – Sedan or ARV – both new to the game and only available in Auto Royale.
    • Sedan: Nimble car with faster acceleration and higher jump clearance, allowing skilled drivers to quickly evade enemies.
    • Armored Recon Vehicle (ARV): Offers more stability, making it easier to drive for new players, but has less turbo fuel efficiency.
  • New Weapons: The Light Machine Gun (LMG), available only in Auto Royale, deals the most sustained damage of any gun in the game.
  • New Power Ups: Players pick up evasive, defensive and combat drops to throw opponents off their trail, heal themselves, or deal damage to enemy vehicles.
    • Defensive drops include vehicle repair kits, environmental buffs, fire extinguishers, and vehicle armour.
    • Evasive power ups include smoke screens, high-octane fuel, turbo boosts, and oil slicks.
    • Combative pick-ups include land mines and corrosive smoke.

Auto Royale is currently in Beta and will continue to develop with feedback from the community. Along with the new vehicular battle royale game mode, H1Z1 launches with a plethora of new features designed to enhance the game’s competitive nature and fast-paced combat.

ADDITIONAL H1Z1 LAUNCH FEATURES:

  • Tactical Deployment: Players can choose which area to parachute into at the start of a match using a heat map that shows locations of where other players spawn.
  • Airdrop Revamp: The airdrop system has been refined to add more points of contention, increasing the drop frequency and item value.
  • Season 1: The official first in-game Season for H1Z1 starts with an all-new scoring algorithm designed to reward consistency and aggression, not just a player’s 10 best placements.
  • Mini Map: Players now have the option to turn on a mini map to help the navigate the world.
  • Founder’s Item: All players who bought H1Z1 during Early Access will receive a special in-game shirt.
  • And More!

The ARMA2 battle royale mod that user playerunknown made was long before H1Z1 so get your facts straight lol. H1Z1 copied it...

EDIT: even better, playerunknown actually brought it to H1Z1 himself!


I just ignore anything that jackoff has to say, in fact hes on my ignore list. so I have no idea what he even responded and I really dont care what he has to say.

In a roundabout way he (correctly) pointed out how you lack critical thought.

No, I dont lack critical thought. I just know shit when i see it.

Okay, show off those critical thinking skills:
This new mode being added to the first retail battle royale game... what makes it "another bullshit wannabe copy cat" ?

Hopefully they fixed the netcode... cause back in the regular BR days cars would be 10 metres out between players (ever try and run someone over in this game? lol).

But yeah, they seem to be scrambling to keep players so i have my doubts, plus it IS daybreak after all - so if anything they've likely made it worse.

Yea, but since playerunknown was hired as a consultant to develop the H1Z1 BR mode, it's more like evolution than copying.

But I do refuse to use the word pioneering in regards to anything to do with the trash company that is Daybreak. hehe.

Another bullshit wannabe copy cat. The madness never ends!

This is a new mode for the battle royale game that released 6 months before PUBG... Madness is not doing a simple google search before you talk shit. I don't even like H1Z1, and they probably are borrowing features popularized by other games, but they do have some standing as being among the pioneers of this genre boom.
