Day Z Xbox Preview Program

Starting today, Microsoft will launch what it’s calling the Xbox Game Preview with The Long Dark and Day Z. This new program is believed to function similarly to PC’s Steam Early Access, which gets interested gamers access to unfinished titles before they’re released.

Day Z is the popular open-world survival horror game from Bohemia Interactive that first hit Steam Early Access in December 2013. The Long Dark is a first-person world survival game from Hinterland that came to Steam Early Access in September of last year.
