DayZ is a hardcore open-world survival game with only one rule: stay alive, no matter what. But with a myriad of threats lurking around every corner, that might be easier said than done…
With no checkpoints or saves, when you die, you lose everything and have to start over.
Complex and authentic survival mechanics, including hunting, crafting, building, health preservation, and resource management.
Unpredictable and often emotional interactions with other players leading to a limitless spectrum of emergent gameplay.
A huge 230 km2 map with a variety of beautiful landscapes and landmarks based on real-life locations.
Up to 60 players striving to survive by any means necessary. Make friends, kill on sight, kidnap strangers and bend them to your will, or be betrayed for a can of beans. Anything and everything is possible.
An array of environmental threats that will test your capabilities. From erratic weather and dangerous wildlife to pitch-black nights and rage-induced infected.
