DayZ, an ARMAII mod released in 2009 about a zombie apocalypse, is being made in to an actual game. With over 1 million players, the game has never been a small time thing. It has received various praisings from multiple websites and has even been called the best zombie game ever.
The development of Day Z as it turns into a stand-alone game is being handled by Bohemia Interactive, the creators of ARMAII. Also, Dean “Rocket” Hall (the man who started DayZ) will be acting as project lead.
Hall wrote on his blog:
“That’s right, this is actually happening - DayZ will be developed as a standalone game, with me as project lead, by Bohemia Interactive. This is the fairy-tale outcome for a mod that many would have said impossible four months ago.
Development and updates of the mod will continue in parallel with the development of the game, so anyone who is playing the mod now will be able to continue to do so. The project will follow the Minecraft development model; fast iterations with the community alpha available for a heavily discounted price.
I realize people will have many, many questions – but we wanted to let everyone know the announcement now. Over the coming weeks, these questions will be answered. The game will have it’s own site, www.dayzgame.com and the mod will continue at it’s present link.”
There you have it. This game has been seen and talked about all over the internet, I have a feeling this news will make many people very happy. I may even try it out, who knows.
