DayZ Is Now Available on Xbox One

DayZ has now officially launched on the Xbox One, following the announcement on Inside Xbox two weeks ago. Players are in the middle of a Walking Dead-style scenario, where society has fallen to an unknown epidemic. DayZ will continue with post-launch development, offering free updates throughout 2019 to expand the content of the game. DayZ originally rose to popularity as an Arma 2 mod, and launched as its own stand-alone title on Steam’s Early Access program in December 2013. Since then, it’s received a major engine overhaul, now powered by Bohemia’s new Enfusion Engine.

Despite not directly featuring any storytelling mechanics, the post-apocalyptic open world of DayZ presents a unique online sandbox where every decision adds up to create your own personal story. When all 60 players on a server engage in this completely unscripted survival scenario, the resulting emergent gameplay leads to intense player interactions — some action-packed and short, and some involving long, sophisticated roleplay with very real emotions that you remember long after. In DayZ, every day is a new story.

Xbox One players can acquire a digital copy for 49.99 on the Microsoft Store, and it is also available on Steam for PC. DayZ will arrive on Playstation 4 later this year.
