The mod community on PC has become so strong that popular full game mods are becoming standalone games. A few days ago we brought you the news that Insurgency was coming Xbox One and now we have news that DayZ is on its way as well. The open world survival game from Bohemia games has been in Steam early access since 2013 but is looking to finally release later this year. As part of this move, it will join the Game Preview program on Xbox. The news was announced by the official DayZ Twitter account –
Yes! Coming to Xbox Game Preview at some point this year, we’re not sure about PS4 yet, but we’ll release there too, eventually – just don’t know when yet.

Here’s the official description of the game as well as the early access trailer –
DayZ is a gritty, authentic, open-world survival horror hybrid-MMO game, in which you follow a single goal: to survive in the harsh post-apocalyptic landscape as long as they can. There are no superficial tips, waypoints, built in tutorials or help given to players. Every decision matters, there are no save games, no extra lives, every mistake can be lethal. If you fail, you lose everything and you need to play again from the beginning with nothing but your wits, and your two hands. Fight the hostile environment, where every other player can be friend or foe and nothing can be taken for granted. This is DayZ, this is your story.
