For the past few months a lot of people that I know have been playing a game that sounds DAMNED awesome to me, however I dont have a particularly powerful PC with which to play it on. That game is DAYZ, which is a mod for the original ARMA: arrow head game, and a few days ago I heard its possibly coming to PS4 as a standalone game!
“DayZ” launched on Dec. 17, 2013, on Steam Early Access as an alpha release. Despite its many bugs, the game recruited 19,000 users within an hour. During the first 12 hours, the title drew 88,000 players. After 24 hours, “DayZ” had been downloaded 172,500 times. By April 1, the game had sold 1.7 million copies of its standalone version. The open-world multiplayer title was created by New Zealander Hall and developed by Prague-based Bohemia Interactive. “DayZ” is a standalone version of the award-winning mod of the same name.
I know I know, I'm a bit slow and this has been news for a while, but I wanted to cover it here, and state why it sounds like THE game that will entice me to buy a PS4!
DAYZ has a 225 square KM map, filled with various pressure points which are built for tense tactical stand offs and all out carnage, vast expanses and captivating scenery, and unpredictable player making for guaranteed insane playability!
Back when CS initially came out as a mod for HL I jumped in thanks to people singing its praises and I feel that DAYZ is going to be another one of these moments in my gaming life (whenever it comes out). I cant wait for the expansive landscapes, the tense showdowns, and the all out action with sniper rifles, grenades and melee weapons.
I'm not about DESTINY or BORDERLANDS type game play, I want it simple and gritty, and this looks like it will deliver!
Although no solid release date has been confirmed by the producers, the idea alone has gotten me hyped, what about you guys?
Let me know what you think of the PS4 possibility, and the current PC version if you have been lucky enough to play the current alpha
