H1Z1 Leaves Early Access and Features New Auto Royale Game Mode

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."

CS:GO Might Get the Battle Royale Treatment

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) wasn't the first battle royale game to exist, but it certainly was the one that put the genre on the map. PUBG has been surrounded by success since its early access in March. The game has sold over 20 million copies worldwide, and it's in the number one spot on Steam's most-played games list. Veteran titles like Dota 2 and CS:GO don't come close to putting up the kind of numbers like PUBG did. In Valve News Network's latest video, the Youtuber analyzed the last ten CS:GO patches, and he found many references to a survival mode. The references include adrenaline shots, compound bows, Mk 2 grenades, medic kits, parachutes, drones, fist-to-fist combat, beacons, a new survival island map, and many battle royale related content. Although it's too soon to tell, but it looks like Valve has bitten the bullet and might implement a battle royale mode into CS:GO to attract more players.
