Daybreak Studios announced today that H1Z1 is going Free to Play. Starting today anyone can download and play H1Z1 and Auto Royale for free.

The studio also announced 3 sets of DLC for the game to celebrate the transition to Free to Play. The DLC’s Bronze Battle Royale Pack, Silver Battle Royale Pack, and the Gold Limited Edition battle pack include everything ranging from crates to custom skins for your cars.
On top of the announcements for the game going Free to Play and the launch of new cosmetic DLC packs the H1Z1 Pro League confirmed the 15 teams that will be fighting it out in the first season of the league. Anthony Castoro, H1Z1 General Manager was quoted on the announcement of the league.
“We are very excited to announce that H1Z1 will be free to play starting today. Not only does this decision allow us to share our version of Battle Royale and Auto Royale with even more players, but it signifies the next step in making H1Z1 a must-watch esport. The Pro League is going to redefine esports when it kicks off in Las Vegas this April, and whether a person is an aspiring pro athlete or just wants to play with friends, we want everyone to have the chance to play the most competitive battle royale game.”
