DayZ: “The First Truly ‘Next Gen’ Game Experience”
We are predominantly 360 gamers and it is only noteworthy (or cheap) PC games that get written about here. DayZ appears to be both. A free “multiplayer open world survival horror video game” mod for Arma II utilizing the Real Virtuality 3 game engine, also used by governments around the world for military training, DayZ (official site) has now surpassed one million unique gamers, and has those of our community who have played it, singing its praises. While you certainly wouldn’t know it to look at it, hearing the stories, or “watercooler” moments as they are sometimes called, has us enviously hoping for a console port announcement. Until that day comes, just know that the average “life” in this ultra-realistic, persistent zombie world, is forty nine minutes and morality isn’t just some contrived feature in the game. It is fight to survive and, shit got real.
The people at Undead Labs must be shaking their heads. Beat to launch by a mod.
