What is DayZ Standalone?

What has become known as simply DayZ, this game is the continuation of creator Dean Hall's vision for his popular Arma 2 add-on now referred to as the DayZ Mod.

What is the difference between the DayZ Mod and DayZ Standalone?

DayZ Standalone, as its name implies, is a wholly separate game built on its own foundations that are no longer reliant on the ArmA II bones which made the DayZ Mod possible. It is being developed alongside the creation of a new in-house game engine at Bohemia referred to as Enfusion. It also includes an extensively reworked Chernarus map.

Is it worth buying DayZ?

DayZ is an incredible experience, however, if you require a fully polished title and are not prepared to deal with the consequences of playing a game that is still undergoing heavy and complicated changes, then DayZ may not be right for you. Development of the game is still ongoing despite an official release labeled 1.0. Bugs and issues are still common, and many previously planned or introduced features are still due to be implemented in the Enfusion engine. Despite this, the game is one-of-a-kind, and you will struggle to find a gaming experience that does large-scale multiplayer zombie survival like DayZ.

How will I get this game and on what platform(s)?

DayZ Standalone is intended to be a multi-platform title. Currently, the game is available for Windows PC (via digital distribution on Steam), the Xbox One Marketplace, and the PlayStation Store.
