WAX and Z1BR Collaborate on Limited-Edition Skins for H1Z1 Relaunch

Mar 6, 2019

Z1 Battle Royale today released new limited-edition skins sponsored by WAX to commemorate the historic relaunch of H1Z1, the battle royale favorite that paved the way for titles such as Fortnite and PUBG. Z1BR's relaunch is timed with the release of the game's third season, in which players experience new game modes, updated mechanics and more rewards.

The skins, including an ultra-rare WAX tshirt, can be played in-game, sold to others on OPSkins Marketplace, or instantly traded for other items trading on the WAX Blockchain.

Over the past few months, NantG has taken over the development of the popular battle royale game H1Z1 PC and rebranded it to Z1 Battle Royale. They've recaptured the spirit of its original game that ushered in the genre's popularity, combined with adding new features, WAX skins, and rewards.

"The launch of Z1BR marks the return of the battle royale that started it all. Users will get to experience the classic H1Z1 everyone fell in love with, the original movement, gun mechanics, expansive world and environment," Anthony Castro, Executive Producer of Z1BR said. "We've touched just about every existing system in the game, while also bringing in brand new systems that give players more to do and interact with."

To commemorate this move, Z1BR and WAX are hosting a giveaway of exclusive, limited-edition skins that are only available through the WAX/OPSkins platform for a limited time.

"We built the WAX E-Commerce Blockchain Platform from the ground up to enable these kinds of innovative, new e-commerce and gaming experiences," said Evan Vandenberg, Senior Manager of Business Development at WAX. "We're excited to team up such a ground-breaking game on this new release. We're sponsoring this exclusive skin drop where these one of a kind items can only be acquired for a limited time through WAX enabled platforms. We love the new gameplay and we're thrilled to see Z1BR return to its original charm while adding new features that their community wants."
