The game that started off as an Arma 2 mod, DayZ, was made famous for it’s revolutionary look at the zombie mod and zombie game which sprouted many others to follow.
This mod has been in production as a standalone title now for months and just as people were forgetting about it, it pops it’s head out of the sand and appears on Steam Early Access.
DayZ is available for £19.99 or $29.99 here. DayZ is a gritty, authentic, open-world survival horror hybrid-MMO game, in which players follow a single goal: to survive in the harsh post-apocalyptic landscape as long as they can. Players can experience powerful events and emotions arising from the ever-evolving emergent gameplay.
There are no superficial tips, waypoints, built in tutorials or help given to players. Every decision matters, there are no save games, no extra lives, every mistake can be lethal. If you fail, you lose everything and you need to play again from the beginning with nothing but your wits, and your two hands. Fight the hostile environment, where every other player can be friend or foe and nothing can be taken for granted.
