DayZ is a survival horror videogame developed by Bohemia Interactive, only available for Windows PC. It is focused on multiplayer gameplay and open world elements. A huge success, this game sold over 80.000 copies in the first twelve hours and over 170.000 in twenty four hours after it was first released via Steam.
The main objective of the game is to stay alive for as long as you can in a city ruined by a zombie apocalypse. DayZ is set in Chernarus, a fictional post-Soviet state in which a virus has turned the population into violent flesh-eating beings. You have to explore the whole map looking for basic resources such as water, food, medicine or even clothes. Those items can be found by scavenging through houses, farms, abandoned vehicles, etc. To help you cross the vast map there are some vehicles available such as a bike - a fast and silent way to move without alerting anyone.
You have to take care of your character’s health, for instance feeding him correctly. Diseases are another major threat to your life, as your character can be affected by cholera, dysentery or hepatitis - contracting those by drinking polluted water or from the undead. However, you can resist disease by using the right medicines.
Survival of the fittest
When we talk about survival horror games we tend to think that zombies are the bad guys, trying to relentlessly eat whoever is still alive. But we are completely wrong. Zombies are just victims of the circumstances; the real bad guys are other survivors, and DayZ excels in demonstrating this fact.
The main objective is to stay alive as long as you can in a zombie apocalypse
Players can capture other players if they feel like it, keeping them as hostages or even handcuffing them to steal all their belongings. To prevent this happening to you, you are free to build a safe house in which you can gather all your objects so they can’t be stolen if you get caught. Additionally, you can clean up an area to make it safer for some time, as the undead will not re-spawn there for a while.
You have to team up with other trustworthy survivors to avoid being assaulted by hostile groups. You can communicate with other players using text and voice chat or using whispers, which allow you to send messages to other players across short distances. DayZ also offers radios that enable long distance communication, including encrypted frequencies and radio stations.

If you are fascinated with zombie games then Dayz is a fine choice. For me, this game is very intense and thrilling. It is also very addictive. Though, this game is quite difficult at first, but once you understand its concept, I am confident that you will enjoy and will keep playing Dayz. I loved that this game is very challenging. You need to find necessities like food, water, medicine or even clothes just to survive this apocalypse. You really need to survive no matter it takes. I think the graphics are just fantastic, and the sounds are somewhat creepy. The game-play is just insane. You can ride the vehicle to move faster away from the zombies, and you can take into custody other players and steal their belongings just for you to stay alive.

Zombie Game Will Definitely Give You the Apocalyptic Adrenaline Rush
By Sam James

While keeping yourself alive and healthy in a zombie apocalypse, you will be initially equipped with the basics – a flashlight and simple clothing, no armor whatsoever. I like the thrill of it! At first, the game will allow you to explore a large 225 square kilometers of landscape. You get to investigate various places including houses, apartments, and barns where you can also scavenge for supplies. You will be able to gather food and water, things you need to prolong your life. Aside from the basics, players will be able to find additional clothing, so they can customize their character’s armor and add more storage for the supplies they can scavenge. Weapons are also available throughout the game. They are scattered in fact. Weapons are essential for protecting oneself not only from zombies, but from other players as well. There are currently more melee weapons available in the game, than firearms.
- Supplies and weapons are available throughout the game
- You can team up with other survivors
- You character can die of diseases

DayZ Full Version
Whoever came up with this fantastic video game’s story line must have used his or her brains to a near maximum as the plot behind it comes out very clearly and it is very good. Just imagine a state like the fictional Chernarus in the post-Soviet Union where a virus has made things go wrong with humanity and turned some of them into fresh eating zombies. Of course there are survivors who have to use all they have to survive i.e their wits, strength etc. A state without government structures and no policing policies and everyone has to survive their own way making it a survival for the fittest saga. The dangers are compounded as we have the deadly zombies, some humans who are thugs and very terrible diseases. The thugs will do anything from taking your character hostage to handcuffing and even killing just to steal their basic survival resources like food, water, medicine and even clothes. Your character can contact diseases like cholera, dysentery or hepatitis. To keep your character alive feed him well and administer medicine.
This game is focused on a multiplayer mode and an open world elements. The graphics, visuals and sound effects are quite amazing and perfectly good. The weapons are simple to use and aim and your zombies are different than in other movies as they are more deadly, fast and can kill when they are in a bunch.
- The plot behind the story comes out clearly
- The graphics, special effects like sound and visual are perfect
