Back in December 2017, Bohemia Interactive showed their full commitment towards bringing DayZ’s survival experience to Microsoft’s Xbox One console. Earlier in February, the studio officially announced it is coming to the Xbox One some time in 2018, with a PS4 version also in the works but with no expected release window. The time has finally come for DayZ’s Xbox One fans.
The game will be available on Microsoft’s Xbox Game Preview program on August 29th, just a couple of days away from now. Here is a brief description of the game accompanying the announcement.
DayZ – the survival game that created its own genre on PC, is launching in Xbox Game Preview on August 29!

Fighting over resources has bred a hostile mentality among survivors, driving what’s left of humanity to collapse. You are one of the few immune to the virus – how far will you go to survive?
Check out the announcement trailer below. DayZ is currently available on PC, and hitting the Xbox Game Preview program in a couple of days. As for PS4 players, they’ll have to wait some more.
