Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it’s finally here – DayZ Standalone (from now on just called DayZ) is now available on Steam Early Access. Dean Hall, DayZ‘s creator, has been adamant that once DayZ was available it would be a buggy mess, and only appropriate for those who want to contribute to the development process – and that hasn’t changed, with the Steam synopsis kicking off in this fashion:
WARNING: THIS GAME IS EARLY ACCESS ALPHA. PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE IT UNLESS YOU WANT TO ACTIVELY SUPPORT DEVELOPMENT OF THE GAME AND ARE PREPARED TO HANDLE WITH SERIOUS ISSUES AND POSSIBLE INTERRUPTIONS OF GAME FUNCTIONING.
If that doesn’t put you off buying DayZ right now you can go and grab it from Steam for $29.99. The alpha stage of development is expected to take about a year, during which Hall and the team will implement vehicles, wildlife, building and support for mods.
Edit: DayZ also has a trailer, which is embedded below – check it yo.
