THIS IS DAYZ, THIS IS YOUR STORY DayZ is an unforgiving, authentic, open world sandbox online game where each one of 60 players on a server follows a single goal - to survive as long as they can, by all means necessary. There are no superficial tips, waypoints, built-in tutorials or help given to you. Every decision matters - with no save games, and no extra lives, every mistake can be lethal. If you fail, you lose everything and start over. Scavenging for supplies and roaming the open world never feels safe in DayZ, as you never know what's behind the next corner. Hostile player interactions, or simply just struggling through severe weather can easily turn into intense, nerve-racking moments where you experience very real emotions. On the other hand, meeting with another friendly survivor in DayZ can lead to a true friendship that lasts a lifetime... Your choices and your decisions create a gameplay experience that's completely unique and unequivocally personal - unmatched by any other multiplayer game out there. This is DayZ, this is your story. KEY FEATURES • Detailed, authentic backdrop of Chernarus, an open world terrain featuring 230 square kilometers of hand-crafted environment based on real life locations • Real emotional experience driven by the emergent interactions of 60 players on the server, all fighting for survival by any means necessary • Environmental dangers including the infected, dynamic weather, and animal predators • Wide variety of complex survival mechanics - from hunting and crafting, through sophisticated injury simulation, to transferable diseases • Persistent servers with complex loot economy, and the ability to build improvised bases • Visceral, authentic gun play and melee combat systems • Smooth and reactive character controller utilizing a detailed animation system • Rewarding and authentic experience of driving vehicles for travel and material transport English French Italian German Spanish Czech Polish Russian Japanese Chinese traditional Chinese simplified

DayZ is a hardcore multiplayer survival game. The authentic, unforgiving experience offers no reprieve for players due to its permadeath concept. If players die – whether by zombies, hunger, disease, wildlife, an unfortunate soda can fight, or myriad other ways – they will have to start again from scratch. Venture into the huge terrain alone, group up with friends, or roll the dice and try befriending complete strangers. DayZ is all about surviving as long as you can, however you can.
