Rumors are flying wildly as an entry for the standalone DayZ Early Access appeared in the Steam database yesterday. The developers have been rather quiet about the state of development on their official blog and Twitter accounts as of late. But, addition to the database does not mean the DayZ Early Access could begin any time soon. However, it is a solid step closer to open testing.
The standalone DayZ game is a continuation of the wildly popular DayZ mod for FPS simulator ArmA II. Standalone Day Z runs on a modified version of the Take On Helicopters engine, nicknamed by some as the Arma 2.5 engine. It is currently in closed alpha testing.
