In the post-apocalyptic world of DayZ , you must fight off the infected, other players, wild animals and even the environment in order to survive. The landscape is overrun, and you must learn to scavenge and manage your resources wisely, or you will perish. You’ll encounter other players as you adventure across the land, but will you choose to kill or team up with strangers in order to survive? DayZ (AKA DayZ Standalone) is a multiplayer third-person open-world zombie survival game created for Windows by Bohemia Interactive.
For those of you who know about the virtual content I love to create, you can no doubt imagine that this game was an instant buy for me. I’ve played a few games on Steam this week, but this one was probably the most visually and audibly pleasing. It really is a refreshing treat for the senses, and it’s one of those games that makes you feel a little better about life after playing it.
