DayZ is Getting a Standalone Release!
Mod sensation DayZ, responsible for sending ARMA 2 sales sky-rocketing, is receiving a standalone release, as a post on the official DayZ tumblr states.
"That’s right, this is actually happening - DayZ will be developed as a standalone game, with me as project lead, by Bohemia Interactive. This is the fairy-tale outcome for a mod that many would have said impossible four months ago."
For those worried about what will happen to the current mod version, main man 'Rocket' states that "Development and updates of the mod will continue in parallel with the development of the game".
Details are scarce at the moment, but answers are promised over the coming weeks. We'll keep you updated. In the mean time, let the rampant speculation as to how the full game version will work begin!
