Standalone DayZ game by September
DayZ has been an amazingly popular mod for the ArmA 2 game over the last few months. However, in order to run DayZ you had to buy ArmA II: Combined Operations. Once you had installed the mod you could begin in the ultra realistic zombie apocalypse survival game.
However, it is still in its alpha stages and various updates have been made, changing the difficulty and tweaking the game play mechanics for users. In a recent panel the games project manager, Dean Hall, stated that the game is going to remove the need for ArmA 2 to run their game, in a “Minecraft model” of releasing the game whilst in alpha and developing alongside the community. Which is a brilliant idea and in my opinion made a huge contribution to the success of that game. And this is said to be ready for launch for September this year (2012).
The cost of the standalone version of the game will be based on content added to it. DayZ being a free mod already will bring challenges in respects to people to buying it. The aim is to create enough new content to make customers happy, Hall said “it needs to be community supported and they need to be behind it”.
