The zombie-apocalypse title by Daybreak Game, H1Z1, has received a update major which brings the long awaited feature – playing as a female survivor.

In addition to this, the update also brings the all new First Person Battle Royale Mode which pits players in a fight to death. You can read the complete patch notes below:

Females

  • You can now choose to be a female survivor in the H1Z1 core game and Battle Royale.
  • All existing wearable’s and emotes work for both genders, including your account items. No matter what gender you choose, skinning an item or using an emote will work for both.
  • If you wish to change gender, you will need to delete the character and recreate it.
  • Known issues: There is currently limited voice for the female character. More will be coming soon.

Other Additions

  • All H1Z1 players will receive a “Daybreak Games” in-game t-shirt. You must own H1Z1 prior to the server wipe.
  • First Person Battle Royale is now available
  • Offroader now has upgraded interior
  • Green and Brown Camo beanies now have the correct texture
  • You can no longer pick up items, open/close doors or search containers while restrained
    380 rounds will now spawn in Battle Royale
  • The recipe for yeast now gives 2 yeast instead of 10
  • Handcuff keys are now visualized in game
  • Added a new recipe for a metal wall that has a doorway inside of it. This can be used instead of a metal gate to gain access to your base.
  • Biofuel and ethanol now do half the damage to structures that they used to.
  • The recipe for ethanol now creates 1 ethanol instead of 5.
  • Flashbangs are now in game, they will explode after 3 seconds of being thrown and will blind anyone within a 7 meter radius.

Construction Changes

  • “No placement” radius around bases has been increased. The owner of the base and people grouped with the owner are not affected.
  • If the owner of a foundation does not log in for a set amount of time (currently testing it at 2 weeks), the foundation reverts to un-owned, and may be claimed by another player.
  • If the owner of a foundation deletes his or her character, the base will be set to un-owned immediately.
  • This will allow groups of friends to “hand off” management of their base to another player.

Test Server Issues Resolved

  • You can now interact with everything in your inventory
  • Night vision will turn on and off as intended
  • Night vision goggles fit on the female model

For those who don’t know, this is the same patch for which the developer carried out a complete player and server wipeout. To read up more, you can see  this post.
