Yesterday, Spanel announced that the zombie survival MMO sold 88,000 copies in 12 hours and was seeing 200 new players every second.
DayZ creator Dean Hall said earlier today that a second patch for the game will launch sometime in the next 12 hours, meaning sometime before midnight PDT. More information about this patch will follow, he said.
The game is far from a finished product. The version of DayZ available today is described as a work-in-progress featuring numerous bugs and various other issues.
