Gamescom 2018: DayZ is lurching onto Xbox Game Preview this month

Bohemia Interactive has confirmed that its Soviet-apocalyptic zeds-‘n’-beans survival sim will be launching on console on schedule. Kind of. It’s only, like half a decade late by now, but in indie game development time, whatever time is on time, and besides, proper inventory systems are totally complicated to build.

Does it even have a proper inventory system now? I dunno because I stopped playing it forever ago, but proper inventory system or not, DayZ will be available on Xbox Game Preview on 29 August, the studio announced this week at Gamescom. So, it’s an “early access” version. Like the one on PC. Which it’s been since 2012.



But, you know, zombies. That’s original.
