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.

Decent price for a pre-release game, might think about getting it.

 


Wait Steam has…

 

Are there going to be games.on.net servers?

 

ZOMG awesome!!!…

…is what I’d say if I still cared.

“PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE IT…”

Streisand marketing?

 

I wonder how long before this gets banned in Australia …

On another note … you’re essentially paying for day z mod version … not a great deal has changed that I can see anywhere… Buildings are more fleshed out and there’s a ton more bits of random loot you’ll never need but it’s all stuff mods for the mod add in anyways.

Worth picking up at some stage but not worth $30 imho

As soon as we’re able to host servers, definitely. Rocket has already stated that dedicated server files won’t be available during alpha, or at least not for a while anyway.

Edit: Actually, my client just finished downloading and it seems there are a bunch of gameserver.com servers up in AU already. Those should count as Freezone traffic for iiNet/Internode/Westnet/Netspace etc customers, just trying to confirm that now.

 

while true its a modded dayz version, it keeps alot of the code that has been fixed from the free version, updates the engine to 2.5 (almost arma 3) and adds body physics and tons more, so i think its worth every penny

 

This is alpha and should be treated as such…

 

I must have submitted the news story while this was being written.

 

Already an alpha tester for BF4. I’ll wait this one out I think.

OH NO HE DIDN’T

 

disruptor4,

Great, now I am going to have to pretend to look surprised when I see it for a second time…

 

PinothyJ,

That would be great! :P

 

Within a day and there is already cheats available for this, nice..

 
Nasty Wet Smear

… No single player, eh?

 

nastywetsmear,

Why would anybody want single player?
The threat in this game isn’t the zombies, it’s the players… that’s where 100% of the fun is.

After spending about 10-15 seconds working out the zombie patterns, there’s nothing to be worried about anymore.

 

Cool. Although I’m actually enjoying Rust more so I might stick with it.
