DayZ planning to be stand-alone this year

’s mod has been ridiculously successful. It’s made ArmA 2 more successful than it has ever been, it’s proven that a persistent world game needn’t be all about fighting and levelling up and it’s gotten me hooked.

Seriously, I’ve only been for a few days and it’s already my “go-to” game.

The man in charge of creating the mod, Dean Hall, has said that a stand-alone edition of DayZ could set the light of day “before Christmas” of this year.

“We’re really on borrowed time,” Hall said. “I want to see it become a standalone game, following the Minecraft model of a low price point, but that will only work if we say that everyone is going to pay, and in order for people to not feel ripped off we need to have a load of new content; so, things like base-building, tidying and cleaning up animations and add ragdoll physics as the like.”
