Day Z Game

The popular zombie survival game Day-Z is a mod for the game Arma II. It’s been hugely successful, but is plagued with numerous issues due to being a mod for a game that wasn’t ever intended to work the way Day-Z does. Bohemia Interactive, the company that makes Arma II has now given the developer of the Day-Z mod the greenlight to develop it as a standalone game. They’ve already got a website for the game: dayzgame.com and it will be updated in the days coming. The Dev says that the project will follow the Minecraft development model; fast iterations with the community alpha available for a heavily discounted price.

This is great news and I think the only people who will be upset are the (more than likely) thousands of people that bought Arma II during the Steam Summer Sale. 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.
