PlayStation Universe investigates exactly what has happened to Bohemia’s zombie MMO since 2014, with a PS4 release date still not announced.
Believe it or not, Dayz is still in early access, its not a finished product, I don't think its right to charge console gamers money for a game that isn't finished, and I don't think Sony wants to get into the mess that is early access. Just like Kickstarter, it all started off great but then some devs started to abuse the system.
ARK is still in early access.
Yep and right now its in a dire state. It shouldnt be released on any platform right now. Its probably my first regret buy of this gen tbh.
Took the words right out of my mouth.
And look how rough that game is. It's full of promise, but far from ready. I'm waiting patiently for a fully finished game, complete with VR option, but I'm not holding my breath and I'm not tempted to buy now in the slightest..
You're absolutely right, and I'm sure many would agree that in terms of quality and polish its one of the worst games on PSN right now. So far I've been really impressed with the quality of games that have been added to PSN, its so good compared to the trash fire that is Steam and its lack of quality control.
Dont get me wrong, i love Steam and I use it loads but there is a ton of trash being released on there all the time, if you check out Jim Sterling's videos on Youtube you can see that there are quite a few devs that either steal assets from other games or simply use low quality assets that they buy in bulk from asset packages and then sell them as their own.
I can't speak for everyone but I'd quite like to see PSN retain its quality rather than open up its gates to unfinished garbage. Having said that the XBLive early access is doing OK apart from having the dodgy ARK on there many of the early access titles are actually in a decent state.
And speaking of ARK and devs that abuse early access, I really dont think its right that the ARK devs worked on and then sold an expansion pack for ARK before the base game was even finished. The whole thing just stinks of greed. I'd even bet money that the ARK devs will announce at least 1 new title before announcing a proper release date for ARK.
As for as the expansiongoes while still in early access, wild card released a statement explaining why they chose to do that. It had to do with beingavle to transfer characters and dino across maps, and felt it would be better overall to test and fix anybugs during early access for it instead of having major bugs on a fully released game. Personally i have no issue with it as scorched earth came with ark on the ps4.
That's why I didn't buy it. I read stories about the state ARK was in when the developers first submitted the game to Sony...
Sony approved the games several months later and it's still in a terrible state according to things I've read.
I don't care much about DayZ after all the issues with the devs abusing the system and all.
I just want my PS4 version of Elite: Dangerous. We are getting closer!
oh yeah, me too! it plays surprisingly well with a controller too.
Will it have PSVR Support?
I feel bad for DayZ devs. They started something amazing and others capitalized on their success by rushing out clones. Now they are left in the dust while people play the clone games instead.
they did that already with ark and it was a bold but good decision as i think the devs will never get to a point where they are going to release it for good. having the most fun with ark on pc and ps4 since chocolate.
I forgot they'd even announced it. Haven't played it on PC for god knows how long, Breaking Point (ARMA3) more or less killed DayZ off for a lot of 'us'. Waaaaaaaay better.
Not sure there's much demand anymore.
Shhh....we're all trying to move on from Zombies. Let's just let it go.
I just hope that sony and microsoft won't allow early access games on psn and live... I don't want to play unfinished games. Just look at Day-Z it has been in early access for how many years now? And there is absolutely no end in sight...
As someone said above, ARK is there. And that Tiger game trailer lmfao hahahahaha
"I don't want to play unfinished games"
Then don't buy them... It's really that simple.
there is alot of early access games on xbl thru the gpp the first was elite dangerous which is now released, currently there is ark,subnuatica,we happy few, the long dark,astroneers to name a few.
Well it's a good thing they don't cater only to one person's opinion then, right?
Still a broken mess after all those years and even the studio head moved on to a new game
Speak for yourselves, i dont mind more choice, you dont want to pay for unfinished thats you but please refrain speaking for the rest. I for one never played on pc bc id leave my best friend in the back and thats my partner in crime, that being said i would love all these early access thing and console to be alittle more open, more choice for ppl instead of the same crap over and over again and no decision for us to even make
I guess with the disagrees im wrong for wanting more choice in console?
Don't pay attention to agrees/disagrees, it's pretty meaningless here.
I don't mind if this stays on PC to be honest. Have no interest in it. Same goes for ARK evolved.
Ark already came out on Console
I know, and it's also not finished.
The game is actually pretty bad. I regret getting off steam as well
Yeah this will probably never come to consoles as it still being developed for PC....and has been in development for many years....and will probably never get out of early access....and lets not forget all those damn bugs/glitches smh
Its a mess and the devs suck. Should not take this long for SA when modders can do it much faster.
Why is the thumbnail of War Z/Infestation?
Anyhow DayZ is still in early access (alpha I think) and has been for 3 years now. There are DayZ mods on Arma 3 with more features that is much better than DayZ standalone and feels more finished than DayZ Standalone.
I have no hope of seeing DayZ on consoles this year or next year. In fact am at the point now where I really don't care for it. There are other survival games out or coming out to consoles. Ark is out on consoles. H1Z1 is coming, 7 Days 2 die is out (but rubbish). The Forest is coming to PS4, Survive the nights is coming to PS4.
I like 7days
te best way to play dayz is the mod the standalone is NOT worth the money or the time
Ark made it but quite frankly early access is just an excuse to keep selling a broken game based on faith and promises. It's a shitty practice that i hope dies soon or just keep it to steam and PC.
What's the difference between unfinished Early Access games and unfinished AAA games? Nothing.
We've been getting unfinished games from all parts of the gaming industry for years. From indies to AAA publishers. No excuses for it from any of them.
You either finish the game and sell it or you don't release until it's done. You don't charge a premium for the alpha/beta version and call it Early Access or AAA.
The games industry will crash once again it's just a matter of time...
I hope it crashes soon. I have a backlog to last me a lifetime lol
DayZzzz is dead. It doesn't really matter if they finish it at this point. Nobody cares anymore and there are far better games already out. The devs completely dropped the ball on this one.
Someone remind me how many years this game has been in early access. I feel the developers are just using this as a cash grab now. I wonder what will release first half life 3 or DayZ?
Release date - December 16, 2013 (steam early access) - that's how long. Too long.
I wonder if people are still buying it. I feel like H1Z1 took over most of that crowd.
The game has been butt since early access started.. H1Z1 is way better.
Hmm never looked that interesting to me, not my type of game. And now Days Gone looks about a thousand times better for some open world zombie action so I dont think I will miss it at least.
Sorry, my mistake. I think I was thinking of H1Z1 and where the hell is that.
Anyway, same reply, Days Gone is more interesting to me.
Only played the mod and I was excited to see what could come of it. 3-4 years later and still in Early Access.
Worst purchase I have ever made on steam.
Sony sold SOE to another company whom changed SOE to Daybreak and Daybreak scratched the console version of Day Z and cancelled the game Everquest Next. These games were supposed to help Sony out with the PS4 until Sony sold the IP's.
