Stop us if you've heard this one before, but the PlayStation 4 port of DayZ is really, really bad. It's one of the worst console ports we've ever had the displeasure of reviewing, and the experience hasn't gotten much better since its launch back in May. It's a bit confusing then that the game is already rolling out a new piece of paid DLC that introduces a second map when the first one isn't even fixed yet.
Announced via a new trailer on PlayStation's YouTube channel, Livonia is said to be "a 163km2 region of lush green landscapes, dense forestry, serene lakes, winding rivers, and… bears." That's all well and good, but the game is still completely broken on PS4. The original map continues to suffer from severe frame rate drops, bugs and glitches galore, and all manner of other issues.
It seems rather unfair on the player base that the game still has to be charging for another map when the first one isn't even in a good place, but PC players are even getting in on the frustration too. Just check out the game's Reddit page and you'll come across numerous posts sharing in the disappointment and frustration towards developer Bohemia Interactive. The PS4 version may still be terrible, but this is an announcement that not even the hardcore players can get behind.
Buying an incomplete game and expecting it to be completed is like paying a contractor upfront and expecting to ever see them again. Good luck with that.
This generation has been the worst when it comes to unfinished and broken games not to mention the abuse of DLC and micro transactions hopefully the next one won't get worse
@GKO900 It is not looking promising in that regard.
Was around my cousins, he picked this up and when I had a go, I've rarely played such a poorly implemented game, even the horror of Seven Days To Die was a little better in the grand scheme of things to this..
As for releasing a new map, makes no sense other than trying to mug people off, before fixing the numerous issues it has...
However, its been like this for a while now, companies just shrug their shoulders and carry on like nothings happened...
Standards need to improve for the next gen in terms of broken games being allowed to be sold, but I highly doubt it...
Honestly this is my problem with Ark. Adding all of these purchasable maps but the game doesn’t even have proper walking animations? Uninstall
Little known fact: the map is not new, it's already been sold once in Arma 3, now they are selling it again in DayZ.
Take my money! Honestly tho most people on reddit that complain about and "actually play it" will tell you that it will be give a who new feeling on player interaction that no other game will give you. If you dont feel good about buying this game as the mess it is, wait until it's on sale and find some friends to play with, its something everyone should experience.
