DayZ Announced for Playstation 4

The very successful survival-horror game DayZ which is currently only available on PC  is coming to the Playstation 4 it was confirmed today during Sony’s Gamescom press conference. Not to be confused with the original DayZ Mod for the Arma 2 engine, the DayZ announced on the PS4 will be the standalone version as found on Steam.

Bohemia developer and DayZ creator Dean Hall took centre stage during Sony’s event in Germany to make the announcement. Little about this version of the game was revealed and there was no release date mentioned, and given the lack of the word “exclusive” being mentioned, it sounds as if it may also come to the Xbox One in the future.

Hall said developer Bohemia Interactive is “acutely aware of how important the PC version is to us.” He also noted the studio “didn’t want to just port DayZ” to consoles, but wants to take advantage of each platform’s respective strengths. He didn’t provide any further detail about what that will mean for the console versions of the game.

Entertainment Fuse will have more on the console versions of DayZ as we hear it and with me being a big fan of the game am looking forward to see how well they port this over to a controller based system.

I'm a lifelong gamer and share my passion with the world in the form of streaming my games on twitch.tv - www.twitch.tv/terrorhertz and making YouTube videos about all the games I enjoy. I'm also a budding games journalist here :)

My gaming journey began in the Christmas 1992 when aged 6, I got my Sega Mega Drive with Sonic One and World Cup Italia 90. Since then I have played and own pretty much every console since then, just check my collection video on my YouTube channel.

Now days I mainly play PC games and got into the PC side of things when I started playing Everquest in 2005. This game opened my eyes to the mmorpg genre and since then have played most MMO's of which World of Warcraft was my most played. Right now I'm playing and streaming DayZ and FIFA with a few other games thrown in here and there. I'm a games journalist and write weekly articles and monthly reviews and previews whilst also uploading 3+ videos weekly to my YouTube channel where you can find loads of awesome HD gaming videos - www.youtube.com/terrorhertzhd

I've worked as a hardware/software technician for Apple the past 4 years and really enjoy working with computers. I have built/modded/overclocked PC's since around 2007 and it's a massive interest of mine. My other hobbies include video editing, carp fishing, golf and playing guitar.
