After a PC launch late last year, an Xbox release earlier this year, and over five years of early access, DayZ has officially been released on PlayStation 4 via PSN. An official retail version of the game will be released later this year.
DayZ is an unforgiving, authentic survival experience. Up to 60 survivors on a server engage in a completely unscripted gameplay scenario with no goals given, except for one: to survive as long as they can, by all means necessary. There are no superficial tips, waypoints, built-in tutorials, or help given to players. Every decision matters, and every mistake can be lethal. If a players fails they lose all character progress and must start over, as the game features a permadeath concept.
With an open focus on the world itself, players are free to attempt to overcome the dangers of the world by working alone or banding together. Thanks to the comprehensive suite of survival mechanics, persistent servers, and a massive 230km map, all sorts of organic experiences can arise, giving each player their own story. This is not Battle Royale. This is DayZ.
DayZ is now available digitally on PlayStation 4 for $49.99. It is also available digitally on Xbox One and PC via Steam. For more information, visit the official website.
