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.
