Popular zombie MMO set for console release.

DayZ

DayZ is coming to PlayStation 4, Bohemia Interactive announced during Sony’s Gamescom press conference.

According to game designer Dean Hall, the currently available early access PC version of the game will benefit from the console version. For example, there is an entirely new cross-platform renderer built to enhance the game’s visuals.

As far as other platforms go, while Hall did not officially announce an Xbox One version, he said on Reddit that “given we decided to develop on OTHER PLATFORMS (of which PS4 is one) we were able to expand the scope of the project to include it.” Asked in the comments if “other platforms” possibly includes Xbox One, Hall responded, “yes but no announcement made about other platforms until confirmed.”

Further details were not announced.
