DayZ is a post-apocalyptic zombie survival game made for the PC that was inspired by the ARMA II mod of the same name. The alpha version of this new stand alone title was released on Steam Early Access on 17 Dec 2013 and has sold over 1 million copies since.
As one can imagine, Dean Hall, the mind behind the DayZ alpha is ecstatic. Hall said via his twitter account:
“Well, 1 million copies in 4 weeks. So much for the death of PC Gaming.”
He also explained that the games sales where “way beyond. way, way beyond” anything he expected.
“this gives me mandate now to make all the crazy games I ever wanted!”
According to Bohemia Interactive it is unlikely that we’ll see a beta version of DayZ any time soon. DayZ is the top-selling game on steam for the moment and has been so since its release.
