I recently started playing DayZ on PS4. I put off getting the game for a long time, mostly because I got it mixed up with PlayStation’s exclusive Days Gone.
These games are nothing alike of course, but the name was so similar that I didn’t know the difference. The ‘other’ game I was thinking about was only available on PC. Which was true, until 2018.
DayZ is in fact available for PC, XboxOne, and even PS4. I play games on PC and PS4, yet I opted to get DayZ on PS4.
So what do I think after my first day on DayZ?
I watched some videos before diving in. Just normal gameplay so I knew what I would be getting. It looked like a very immersive world where I have to manage my health, nutrition, and water with zombies and formidable real life players. Turns out, that is exactly what the game is. I ran into many players, zombies, and indeed had to manage my health, food, and water.
The game is very immersive. I walked around aimlessly looting for quite some time before I ran into any conflict. I had to kill 2 players and a handful of zombies.
The game had a very PUBG meets 7 Days to Die. I play many of these survival type games. The building at first is minimal. Just aimlessly running around. I found many player bases. They left something to be desired. Nothing like the depth of 7 Days to Die, at least as far as I experienced.
Overall, I thought it was a great game for what I expected. It’s honestly just okay; however, if this is the type of game you like, you will absolutely love it.
Let me know what you guys think, and hit me up to game up!
