DayZ started out as an Arma II mod – can you believe it? The post-apocalyptic zombie survival game has since been released as its own standalone game on many different platforms, meaning that you can run out of water and die of thirst no matter which platform you play on.
While DayZ is a game that makes you ponder life’s biggest questions after encountering hostile players, like whether zombies or humans are the real monsters, you’ll likely want to team up with friends to combat those pesky snipers in Elektro. Those friends might own different consoles, so we’re here to help you find out if DayZ crossplay is possible.
Read on below to see whether you have to have the same version of DayZ to play together. We’ll keep this guide up-to-date, so check back to see if there has been any change in the game’s crossplay implementation, and what platforms the changes pertain to.
DayZ does not have crossplay at this time. That means if you own a PS4 or PS5 and you’re trying to play with friends on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, or PC, then you all need to play on the same platform. You can, however, play with others on the same family of consoles. If you own an Xbox One, then you can play with someone playing on a Series X, for example
Unfortunately, players of the survival game have been asking for the feature since the game’s full console release in 2019. This still hasn’t happened, so there is currently no way to play with friends on other platforms.
