Never heard of Arma or Day Z until just a minute ago. Day Z is a mod for Arma II. It's a real-time, MMO, zombie apocalypse world. You have to scavenge and survive. The game features permanent death; if your character dies, that's it. Game over. You have to start again at the beginning with nothing.
Looks really pretty cool. Just gonna grab it now.
Good luck, most frustrating game I have played in a while.
Walk for an hour without finding guns, get hit by a glitching zombie and then slowly die from blood loss. Or worse, lose enough blood so you keep blacking out but don't die.
It is very much a game in alpha status, don't expect too much. Still; the idea is cool, so despite all the failing servers, glitching zombies, surprise deaths from breaking a leg when you stub your toe and fellow players who snipe you from 2 km so you can start over again. I still keep going back.
