Anyone heard of this game yet?  Well, it's a mod from the ArmA series but they are currently making it into it's own game.

I've been watching this dude on youtube named SideStrafe play it and it looks pretty awesome.  But since i'm a zombie fanatic i guess i think anything zombie is awesome.

Well it's basically a huge sandbox... maybe as big as Skyrim?  and you spawn near the coastline when you first start.  You start out with a pistol and a few other things.  There are no quests really... i guess the point is to stock up on supplies and survive...  This game makes you have to eat food and drink fluids in order to survive.  If you don't wrap your wounds with bandages you will bleed out. Daytime and Night time will depend on what server you play on and it is realtime.  So if you play at 12am, it's night time ingame as well.

I think I heard him say there are 60 people to a server.  When you die, you lose everything and will have to start over again.

Patches are done on this game almost everyother day.

Idk.. this is my kind of game and when i get back in country i'm going to start playing it.  So it would be cool to play with some of you guys and we can hang out in vent so communicating is easier. 


Just look up SideStrafe and watch his LetsPlay series on DayZ for more ingame info.  I think this video will give you a good idea of the game...keep in mind that it is a mod that is in alpha... but the actual full game that will be for console/PC will be out in the future.

If you don't want to watch it all, at least watch the last 6 minutes of the video..  ;)

Alucard has been playing this game a fair bit and Knievel is a zombie fanatic so if people here got playing DayZ I'm sure he'd be a regular.

Alucard just brought to my attention yesterday this new competitor in this genre called WarZ.  It's just nearing release.
