Z-DAY is a single player total conversion mod for Far Cry 3, coming March 1st

Z-DAY Far Cry 3 Mod

By on February 3, 2014 at 1:42 pm

While the name will no doubt make your eyes roll wildly in your head, Z-DAY is not what you’d expect. No, instead of a multiplayer experience in which you and your friends avoid zombies and kill strangers for hobo food, Z-DAY is a single player mod for Far Cry 3, albeit one riddled the living dead.

As noted by PC Gamer, Z-DAY is a full-fledged single player experience, with 12 levels set within a city ruined by the undead apocalypse. The name was inspired by D-Day, not Day Z, but developer GC_Vos has noted on his ModDB page that the name will be changed to avoid confusion and people getting irrationally upset over a name.

The open beta for Z-DAY is set to come out on March 1st, although if you’re looking for an entirely no fuss experience, the July release will package the new levels with cutscenes, voice acting and packaging to make the experience smoother. Embedded below are the first seven minutes of gameplay – it’s an alpha so you’ll notice some bugs, but it looks pretty neat and very tense.

Interesting, I quite liked Far Cry 3 and its gameplay so will check this out.

I know it’s just early alpha, but I sure hope they can stop those ‘living dead’ from looking and acting so ‘living’, otherwise you go from a Zombie mod to an Urban Rebellion Gone WAY Over The Top mod.

Still, looks interesting… And, single player, you say?? Hmmmm.

 

This looks rather interesting, I’ll certainly give it a go

 

The market is certainly ripe for an apocalypse sim that works. Not sure about the X-ray vision and Sir, you are crouching icons etc. will have to keep an eye on it though. B

 
 

looks fun going to re download far cry 3 now …

 

Can’t argue with free.

 

In for early alpha that has better zombie AI than Dayz does after forever.

 

I find the general mechanics of FarCry 3 fluid and fun. If the looting is scarce, crafting is limited and zombies are made correctly I would be allover it like flies on shit.
