DayZ is Out Today on PS4

How far will you go to survive?

Chernarus has once been a popular tourist destination. Now it’s a post-apocalyptic wasteland struck by an unknown epidemic – and you’re one of the survivors immune to the virus, desperately trying to make it through another day.

We’re excited to introduce you to the authentic open world of DayZ – available on PlayStation 4 in our most complete release so far! Get a quick intro to the gloomy, post-apocalyptic country of Chernarus in our brand-new live action trailer:

What if the zombie apocalypse actually happened?

DayZ is a persistent, 60-player online survival game. But when you immerse yourself into Chernarus, everything immediately feels disturbingly real. The fear of other survivors, the growling sounds of the infected, and the looming danger of permadeath makes you behave like you were actually there, surviving the apocalypse.

To achieve this feeling, we based many of the stunning locations you see across Chernarus on real places (as seen in the live action trailer!), and the environment design closely follows the landscape of a small region in the heart of Europe. DayZ is as real as it gets.

DayZ

No laws, or rules – it’s pure survival

When society falls, it brings out both the worst and the best of mankind. In DayZ, we give players the ways and means to demonstrate what we’re capable of as human beings when following our basic survival instinct. There are all the ugly things of course (have you been force-fed a disinfectant spray before?), but at the same time, DayZ players can forge true friendships, or restore your faith in humanity through random acts of kindness.

How far will you personally go to survive? Are you a hero, or a bandit? The choice is yours. We don’t hold your hand or give you any artificial goals or rules to follow. The game is your playground, an online social experiment with one ultimate consequence for making bad decisions: in DayZ, when you die, you die.

DayZ

This is DayZ, this is your story

A way to survive is to get a couple of friends together and play DayZ as an adrenaline multiplayer shooter, killing every survivor before they have the chance to get the better of you. You’ll have loads of fun (and loot!) for sure, but doing this, you’re missing out on the best: interacting with strangers and experiencing unscripted moments as they naturally enfold.

So while we don’t force you into anything, here’s a piece of advice on how to play DayZ: put yourself out there and try to talk before you shoot! From direct voice chat to public address system loudspeakers, DayZ offers a variety of communication tools to let the situation play out.

Yes, you will probably die often, but then, it’ll all click together once or twice, leaving you with an epic story to tell. And exactly this is DayZ – it’s your survival story. Make it a good one!
See you in Chernarus, Survivors!

  • 5 years in the making, and xbox get 30% off, can we expect a stable game, virtually bug/lag free? Xbox version is nearly unplayable, pc is just as bad, i do’nt mind dishing out the cash for it ass long as it does what it claims it does.

    • ChaseHammerJ

      Its the same incomplete game as on PC.

    • no

    • Rootbeer_Goat

      I am not being a jerk.

      People, please do some research on this game before you buy it.

      This game is one of the pioneers of selling an unfinished game for years while with an “early access” label. It has had the same problems with zombies clipping through walls and bad loot spawns since 2013.

      These developers did amazing job with the Arma series, but this DayZ is their dishonest side hustle. The fact that they haven’t cut their losses is insane. This game has been dead on PC, so they’re starting fresh with a new unsuspecting market.

    Can i get it for free ?

  • BobbyTheFlame

  • THEALLFATHER80

    Where can it be bought?

  • KidGreengene

    Launches along with Blood and Truth, Five Nights, and also big news days from Death Stranding, Avengers, Call of Duty… bad timing. Day’Z Gone.

  • LEFT__4__DEAD__2

    Good, love DayZ <3

    • BobbyTheFlame

      Yeah clearly the top dog on survival games on console overall hands down.

  • This game is a scam. Nothing is responsive. Game breaking glitches galore. The UI is broken if played inverted. I tried to return the game, but Playstation said I can’t because it was already played “once.” I think that is unacceptable. This is clearly a cash grab for an *unstable and incomplete* piece of media. There are no reviews for this game on PS4, and I was completely caught off guard by how unplayable the game is. How is it feasible that once I am witness to its absurdity I am unable to return to sender? Give me 48 hours at least! I want it deleted from my library and return the little bronze trophy I got for starting the game and get my 66.99 dollars back! I want it out of my existence. Buyer Beware.

  • KILLER_ORIGINAL

    Doesn’t seem like a game that’s worth it’s price ($66.99 CAD)

    Just looking at the graphics this look like a $15 game. Also read other reviews about an unpolished game and it shows just by watching the video.

  • Minekittyfood

    Lots of people would like to play this game, problem is we all know it’s not worth what it is priced at on Ps4, Xbox, an Pc at this time.

  • I might check it out only if its 1 of the PS Plus monthly “free” games.
