Night of the living dead

In one of the more unexpected announcements at Sony's Gamescom conference today, it was announced that popular survival MMO DayZ will be coming to the PlayStation 4. The shambling shooter sees you and your buddies dropped in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, provided with essentially no resources, and then forced to fight for survival.

Intriguingly, this pleasant port will actually enhance the PC version of the game through the use of 64-bit servers, and a new cross platform renderer. We're not entirely sure what either of those highly technical terms mean, but we suspect it's good news for everyone. No specific release date was given for the notoriously challenging title, but we still think this is definitely one to watch.
