PC gamers, get ready for a mod that will leave you speechless. DayZ is a Zombie mod for ArmA 2 that has enormous potential. Remember how Counter-Strike was revolutionary back in the Half-Life days? Well, DayZ is that good and offers a unique experience. Unlike all other Zombie games, this mod focuses on human interaction/emotion and survival. When you start off you have a pistol with a couple mags, some water and a can of beans. You have no map/compass and have no idea where you are. And then the fun starts. The team behind it have released a new update for it and you can view its complete changelog below.
DayZ’s scope and concept is unmatched. There are servers where players can login and start their adventures. There are bandits that will steal your equipment, and there are other survivors like yourself. However, those survivors may betray you in order to get your weapons or your… bread. Remember all those zombie movies where the protagonists could not trust anyone? Well, this is exactly what’s happening in DayZ. Make no mistake, this is perhaps the Mod of the Year and you should definitely try it. In fact, you should buy ArmA 2 for this mod alone. It’s THAT good.
Here is the changelog for the update that was released yesterday. Those interested can download the mod from here.
