I cannot believe there hasn't been a thread of this. This is an Arma 2 mod and it is one of the most ambitious mods I've ever seen. Realism of tracking other players, teaming up, robbing them, killing them for food combined with actually searching for food, water and guns inside abandoned cities and towns filled with zombies. A medical system with bandages, blood transfusions and eating meat to regain strength and health. Also PVP where in the real world, trust no one as anyone can put a knife in your back at any time!

The game is still in Alpha stage and was created by one of the devs from Arma 2 itself. By the way, you can download it and play it yourself, there are tons of full servers! You just need Arma 2: free or regular Arma 2 and Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead.

http://www.dayzmod.com/

"Realistic "Zombies" with custom animations - These once human creatures will act and behave as if they have a heighten sense of hearing and smell but less sight, on top of that they use motion captured animations such as walking and eating from your unconscious body. If you look into any built up area you'll see them walking around waiting for their next victim which dares to venture in.

New weapons and vehicles! - Ever felt like you needed a Crossbow? Or maybe a less military like weapon? If you have then this is perfect for you as we have both of these created to high quality standards all ready for your use in this wasteland. On top of that you can even pick up the bolts fired from the Crossbow to reuse! Not only that we also have created custom vehicles which can be repaired and ridden around to show the world what you're made of!

Custom Medical System - ArmA II's magic medic feature is a thing of the past with this medical system - If you get shot, expect to bleed and to lose blood until you're bandaged up. Lost too much blood? Then expect to fall over unconscious. If you get shot in the leg then you won't be able to walk until you get morphine so you can man up. Pain is also a factor taken into consideration so without pain killers after taking an injury you'll continue to shake. This is medical at it's best!

Persistent Server - Fed up of spending so many hours working towards a goal or finding supplies and then the server crashes on you losing all your progress? Well with the DayZ server all stat's are saved to our external database so where ever you log off, whatever you have will be keep on you next time you come back in. This means you can spend however long you want doing what you want to do. As long as you don't die during the night!

Tons of new objects - We haven't just added in big things like weapons, we take pride in little details so expect to find things such as water canteens, a number of canned foods, junk and car parts (Along with more!) each of which have their own models, textures and UI imagery, once again all created to that high quality you expect in a full scale modification and we're sure you won't be disappointed with it. Nothing has been rushed.

Hunting and Survival - Eating and drinking is a core part of gameplay, you can tell if you need something by a very subtle GUI which doesn't effect the atmosphere, and if you don't fulfil those needs. You'll die. Wandering animals can killed and gutted (with the right tools) to gain access to their meat which can be eaten so you live longer but also to gain blood. For once these animals actually have a use.

Heavy Optimisation - The DayZ server has been designed to give the best play possible. Custom coding and edits have created a smooth running world which can easily have thousands of zombies spawned at once!

And Much More! - The only way to find out - is to survive!"

This is what PC gaming is all about!

This mod is intense. A good way to describe it would be STALKER in multiplayer co-op.

I'm willing to bet that this'll be made into a separate game at one point. Bohemia will also be happy that this is probably driving the sales of Combined Operations up.

this sounds nice with the co op option. though I rather prefer a single player zombie game similar to dead islands trailer. wish the game played like that

Been following the GAF thread on it, gutted at the fact that my laptop can only run Arma 2 very poorly. I'm hoping that it becomes standalone and perhaps becomes more optimised for lower end hardware as some of the stories/videos I've read make it sound like the EXACT game I'm after.

Ugh, I just made a thread about this and wrote a long spiel.

Have to say though that there needed to be a thread about it, this mod/game is genuinely amazing.

DAY Z and Project Zomboid >>>

Best zombie games ever and they are just in alpha stage still!

Day Z has really reminded me of a 3d Project Zomboid.

This is genuinely one of the most amazing gaming experiences I have encountered. It really is something quite unique and special. Once the bugs and server issues are sorted out, I can only see the popularity of DayZ skyrocketing.

If anyone is interested, article describing early experiences in the game, made me laugh as mine were similar.


Quote from article;


"

Day Zis the best thing I?ve played so far this year.

On my first go, I bled to death in the dark, alone on a forest trail."

Actually, Arma 2 free with Operation Arrowhead has worked for some people.

It's just that people with Arma 2 free don't get high res player textures.

Read and seen excellent stuff about it - doesn't surprised me ArmA 2 fits a zombie mod perfectly - OFP did as well. Have to say it's hugely impressive having persistence on the servers.

Would love to see it get to a final release. Hopefully they don't jump to the ARMA 3 engine, then, and just keep ploughing on this one.

That looks bloody amazing. If the guys are allowed I'd like to see them make a fully fledged product for ARMA 3.

I've always wanted a proper zombie survival game and this looks like it. No games have really captured the feel for me

I saw a video about this. It seems really cool. I wonder why consoles don't have a $15 game like this on PSN and the Marketplace, it seems like a really cool premise, I don't know why its really never been done.

That game was great but felt too slapstick and funny for me to feel like this zombie survival game in a desperate enviroment. Dead Island had the potential to be that but was totally sucky

Don't forget it was broken, until they patched it later but by then it was too late.

Can't trust a damn person. Need some friends to play with on Skype or something. This is definitely an eye-opener for the actual zombiepocalypse. Probably best just to shoot first or stay away from other people ;)

My first time went horribly, first person I found killed me. Second time we had a small group going that was doing really well, but then just grew too fast... we separated a bit when pillaging a town and one of the newer guys took his chance on poor old unsuspecting me to get my Lee Enfield.
