DayZ is an open world multiplayer game which found popularity on PC some years ago. The goal is for players to survive on a post-apocalyptic map for as long as they can. Many gamers consider DayZ a hardcore experience because there are no tips, waypoints, tutorials, or lives. If you make a mistake and get killed, you lose everything and have to start from the beginning with nothing. Just like other titles in the genre, scavenging resources is the focus here.
Updated July 31, 2018: Only a select group of Xbox Insiders have access to the DayZ preview build. Sign ups for the closed beta will take place later in August.
A few years ago, Bohemia Interactive announced that DayZ would be coming to Xbox Game Preview "soon". Unfortunately, the wait turned out to be longer than expected and a few months ago, the team promised that the game would launch on Xbox One in 2018. It seems that that day is almost here because, today, a listing for DayZ appeared on the Xbox Store and many gamers — including Xbox's Larry Hryb — are already playing it.
The listing doesn't provide a release date, but it says that the title is "Coming Soon". Apart from that, it's Xbox One X Enhanced and features "4K Ultra HD" support on Microsoft's new console. A few weeks ago, the developer wasn't sure if it would be able to get the game running at 4K on the system, but it seems that the team has achieved that. It's unclear if there will be a 1080p 60 FPS mode as originally promised.
Lastly, the download is 12.9 GB. The final size may be larger because games sometimes require more storage space one they're installed on Xbox One. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know further details like the exact resolution and release date. Until then, you can admire the listing on the Xbox Store.
