According to a press release I just received regarding the game H1Z1,

Hello!

From Dec. 14 – 21, Daybreak Games will kick off H1Z1’s first-ever Free Week! The original standalone battle royale shooter will be free to download and play in full for the entire week, starting Thursday, Dec. 14. Additionally, during this week, H1Z1 will be on sale through Steam for 75% off. More information can be found here: h1z1.com/free-week.

H1Z1 is also celebrating the holidays with Wreck the Halls! Throughout the month of December, players have the chance to obtain a four-piece holiday-themed outfit across multiple in-game events. To win a piece of the ensemble, players must finish 30th or better in any holiday event match.

For more news, follow H1Z1 on Twitter and Facebook.

This is pretty cool and guarantees that I’m going to dip my toes in the water and see if this game is something I could enjoy. It’s always looked like a game with huge potential, and of course famously gave PlayerUnknown the opportunity to test his battle royale format via H1Z1 King of the Hill. There was some interesting back and forth between the two and Epic Games recently, which I previously reported on here and here. 

Anyway, this current free week will also coincide with the Wreck The Halls event, which looks fun enough. Well, look for me around the battle royale way this coming weekend and let’s see what this game is really all about. Cheers.
