Over 15 Minutes of DayZ Footage Released

The standalone zombie epic of DayZ may still be in the mill, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t get a sneak peak of how the process is moving along. Bohemia Interactive recently posted up a gameplay video featuring over 15 minutes of footage for the game originally built from ArmA 2 – while discussing how the current state of the game is coming along. It is a pretty interesting ...

Day Ztories: Without A Leg To Last Stand On

ToDay’Z lesson: safety is an illusion. No danger in sight only means that danger is hiding. Sometimes it’s in really obvious places: the world is crawling with flesh-eating zombies, after all. Other times it’s less conspicuous: I once broke my legs by opening a door too fast. But just don’t believe for a second that you’re ever really safe. My brothers and I got a lit...

Arma 2: Combined Ops Gets Retail Release

Hey, you know that awesome zombie game, DayZ? Well, someone’s taken that and turned it into a hardcore military simulator! Wait, maybe that’s the other way around. Regardless, Bohemia Interactive today released a retail version of Arma 2: Combined Operations, which is available in stores for the first time in Australia and New Zealand. It’s been available on Steam for a while now...

Day Ztories: Cut to the Chase

That way, they can keep you entertained, narrating their adventures while you spend ten minutes crawling through a paddock. While I was (again) hopelessly lost in the woods somewhere near Kamenka...

Day Ztories: Day One

How do you make a great game even better? Throw some zombies into the formula, apparently. It worked for Red Dead Redemption. And Yakuza. And Call of Duty’s been doing it for years. Like a lot of successful games, DayZ takes ArmA 2, a zombie-free military simulator, and adds zombies. If you haven’t gotten into this open-world, “realistic”, Zom-Poc survival mod yet, stay hid...

DayZ Confirmed as Standalone Game

We all knew it was going to happen, but it’s finally been officially confirmed: DayZ, the stupidly-popular zombie mod for military sim ARMA 2, will be developed as a full, standalone game. The game will be published by Bohemia Interactive, the studio behind ARMA 2, with the mod’s creator, Dean Hall, as the project lead. In a blog post, Hall specified that the game “will follow th...
