Do you remember when H1Z1 used to be about surviving the zombie apocalypse? Yeah, me neither. In any case, gear up and slide behind the wheel of your muscle car, because PlayStation 4 players are about to enter the Outland.

“Outland is the first new map to arrive to H1Z1 on PS4 since launch, and headlines by far the biggest free content update we’ve brought to the game. Featuring greater terrain diversity, iconic landmarks, increased verticality, and a wealth of new and varied POIs, Outland revitalizes H1Z1’s trademark fast-paced, action-packed gameplay for battle royale purists and newcomers alike. The Outland expansion launches on PS4 next week, with more info to follow on PC.”
