The survival game finally crawls its way to Sony’s console.
DayZ is one of those interesting games that has had a pretty wild history. Originally released as a mod for Arma II, it proved popular enough that developer Bohemia Interactive decided to spin it off into its own game that’s garnered it’s own following. Now that game is finally making its way to Sony’s PS4 after several years.
DayZ is a zombie game, but unlike many shooters where the focus is on gunning down as many of the undead as possible, it focuses on survival against the harsh realities of an outbreak. You start with minimal resources and must scavenge for more, along with weapons.
The game was originally released on PC in 2018 after a five year-long early access period, with console versions announced to come later. It made its way to Xbox One along with several updates, but is just now finally getting to the PS4 this week, according to the developer.
DayZ is available now for Xbox One and PC, with the PlayStation 4 version releasing May 29th.
