There’s a lot of excitement and anticipation around the release of the new Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that DayZ and DayZ Livonia will be fully playable on both via backward compatibility.

If you own a digital license, the game will be available for download directly from your PlayStation Network or Xbox Live account. You’ll be able to access the game from the Ready to Install section of your Xbox Series X/S, and the Library section on PlayStation 5. Since the savegame is entirely server-side, you’ll be able to jump back into the game exactly where you left off.

Furthermore, the game’s price and availability will remain the same on the old and new generation of consoles. This includes both old and newly acquired licenses.

When it comes to performance, we are still conducting some internal testing, as the results can vary depending on the environment, as well as the player count, base building objects, loot in proximity, or the server performance. However, the first results clearly indicate improvements in general performance (e.g., more steady framerate), in most of the basic scenarios (e.g., roaming a non-crowded area).

To sum up:

The game will run on the new generation of consoles via backward compatibility mode

The same license is valid for both generations

Availability and price of DayZ won’t change

Game progress is linked to your Xbox Live and PlayStation Network accounts, and will remain the same across both generations

Xbox One players are playing with Xbox Series X|S players, the server pool is the same for both. Like Xbox, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players are playing together.

Important note:

Owners of a physical copy of DayZ won't be able to use their disc on a console that doesn't have a disc drive/reader.

In addition to our previous announcement on DayZ on the next-gen, we would like to add a couple more points for clear understanding:

Owners of a physical copy of DayZ won't be able to use their disc on a console that doesn't have a disc drive/reader.


Players on the Xbox Series will play on the same servers as users on the Xbox One do.


Players on the PlayStation 5 will play on the same servers as users on the PlayStation 4 do.

When it comes to performance, we are still conducting some internal testing, as the results can vary depending on the environment, as well as the player count, base building objects or loot in proximity, or the server performance. However, the first results clearly indicate improvements in general performance (e.g., more steady framerate), in most of the basic scenarios (e.g., roaming a non-crowded area).
