Ignition mode comes to H1Z1: King of the Kill

Writing to let you know that Daybreak Games has released a new competitive game mode for H1Z1®: King of the Kill™ calledIgnition. Like the wildly popular Battle Royale mode, Ignition is a fight-to-the-death struggle for resources and survival against up to 150 other players – with an exciting twist!

Rather than parachuting into the action, Ignition starts each challenger off with their very own ATV and a pack of explosives strapped to their body. Players have a limited amount of time to scavenge for weapons and equipment before making their way to one of several safe zones. Anyone who fails to reach sanctuary before the countdown expires will trigger their devices, eliminating them from the match. Players that leave the safe zone before the detonation timer resets for the next wave will meet a similar fate.

Safe areas will decrease in number and change positions on the map as matches progress. The time allotted to reach shelter will also decrease with each round, making later waves even more intense as players rocket at full speed toward the final havens. Airdrops will occur throughout the match, each including a fully loaded off-road vehicle, making life easier for those willing to take the risk.

H1Z1: King of the Kill is an online multiplayer shooter specializing in large-scale, last-person-standing battles across a variety of new and evolving game modes. It is available now on Windows PC via Steam Early Access and will officially release later this year.
