DayZ is a game that started as a mod for the game Arma II: Combined Operations. We recently reported that the game is nearing 1 million unique players, and there has been further interesting developments regarding the game. The developers have announced that they will be working with Bohemia Interactive to make the mod into a standalone game. Those that purchased Arma II to gain access to the mod shouldn't be worried, as development of the mod will continue in parallel with development of the game. There has been no word on when the game will be available, but expect the alpha version to be heavily discounted. Stay tuned for future developments and answers from the developers.
