First off let me ask you a question.

Have you ever played Dead Frontier?

Yes? Then it's a 3D FPS version of it set in a Russian inspired area.

No? Then there is a more to be said...



Day-Z is a survival zombie FPS...MMO? Well Idk about MMO because from what I seen you play with whoever are in the server you are in so it's not mass but with 400k players bouncing back and forth through servers I guess it can be.

You must keep your hunger level low, your thirst level low, your blood red, and your mind sharp. The survival system is rich. Very rich indeed. There is no super human soldier. You can break your leg or you can be very unaware of your health and begin to shake and pass out.

There are also other players. This is where psychology and come into sociology comes into play. They'll either be friendly and you can pair up and survive the zombie apocalypse or they can kill you and loot you or they can set you up and trick you into getting mauled by the undead or...I'm sure you get the point by now.

And it's only in Alpha form.

O-o Also like to point out that there are cars. It's a unneeded feature but seriously does add a cool piece to the world. Most cars are in need of fixing so you would have to go around looking for car parts.

It's a mod of Arma II btw. I probably didn't cover that as I wanted to cover the real cool stuff. Arma II it's self is a realistic FPS for modern warfare. There is an Arma III coming soon but idk how it'll effect it. Also the designer of the mod says he'll try to make it into a standalone game which is cool too.

If you're interested I suggest going to Stream and getting Arma II and then getting the mod or Youtubing it.

Couple of things I need to point out, since I actually have been following DayZ's forums.

The game at the moment is a complete mess. With the huge influx of new players, your main "opponent" are other survivors instead of the zombies. Lesser supplies to go around and the fact that you don't start with a weapon will be a huge factor in your survival. Also, beware of established clans that will kill on sight if you loot certain areas such as airfields or supermarkets. As Roy said, it is an alpha so expect lag and unrealistic AI behavior to be your downfall. It's permadeath so everything you get on one character will be gone if you die.

Oh, and Roy forgot to mention that helicopters are in this game. Fun if you're in it; shoot it down if you're not. Or at least run away.

Steam's summer sale is probably on the 12th (which is technically today) so if you're interested in this game, go ahead and buy ARMA II. No guarantees this mod will stay on this engine, as the creator said he's going standalone with this while a rumour says he has been hired to work on ARMA III.

I forgot about helicopters T_T but I would imagine you'd shet yourself at that sight.

Also so. The players are the biggest enemies? I expected that. From videos I seen whenever there is gunfire people scramble to hide or get down. That's very authentic for a post apocalyptic game.

O.o I would hope he does a standalone because he could make a lot of money and gain a team of people to help him with the game.

If you don't like it you don't like it. It's survival. No story, no mission, no npcs, just survival.

The War Z -- A New Zombie Survival Experience - IGN

:> Soooo someone is beating Day-Z's designer and Dead Frontier's creator to the punch...(tho Dead Frontier will probably still be in it's own league for it's differences).
