DayZ is a hardcore multiplayer survival game. The authentic, unforgiving experience offers no reprieve for players due to its permadeath concept. If players die – whether by zombies, hunger, disease, wildlife, an unfortunate soda can fight, or myriad other ways – they will have to start again from scratch. Venture into the huge terrain alone, group up with friends, or roll the dice and try befriending complete strangers. DayZ is all about surviving as long as you can, however you can.
