The post-soviet country of Chernarus is struck by an unknown virus, turning the majority population into frenzied infected. Fighting over resources has bred a hostile mentality among survivors, driving what’s left of humanity to collapse. You are one of the few immune to the virus – how far will you go to survive?
DayZ, the massively successful online sandbox game that helped shape a new genre on PC, is bringing the authentic hardcore survival experience to Xbox One players. Up to 60 players on a server engage in a completely unscripted, emergent gameplay scenario with a single goal: to survive as long as possible in a vast, unforgiving wasteland. Fear of the unknown, lasting friendships, and heartbreaking betrayals – this is DayZ, this is your story.
