"Welcome to Chernarus. A 225 km2 open world post-soviet state and one of the areas hit by a new and presently unknown infection which has wiped out most of the world's population. You are one of the few who have survived and now you must search this new wasteland in order to fight for your life against what is left of the indigenous population, now infected with the disease.
Go Solo, team up with friends or take on the world as you choose your path in this brutal and chilling landscape using whatever means you stumble upon to survive.
This is Day Z - This is your story."

Day Z is a awesome Arma 2 mod I stumbled upon the other day. It's semi-rougelike with; permadeath, random start location, random loot, ect. Think Cataclysm with true multi-player and in a 3-D engine. Team work is very helpful as opposed to "lonewolf-ing", but you must be careful as there are no enforced teams and anything goes. Example: I came upon a guy being eaten by zombies: I having a lever-action shotgun made quick work of them. Then I walked up to the guy stopped his bleeding and fixed up his leg; he promptly shot me as soon as I turned my back to him. (That was a douche thing to do and most people you come across will happily join you, but you get the idea.)
Free Protip: People are more dangerous than zombies.
- Persistent world + Characters (The server auto-saves your profile when you quit)
- Navigation (You start with no map, compass, or watch)
- Vehicles (they are rare and take a lot of work to fix)
- Advanced injury and treatment (Bandages to stop bleeding, morphine to "fix" broken limbs, ect.)
- Atmosphere (Nights are very
dark and without a light source you cannot see. Double cool when your flare goes out with 20 zombies chasing you and you have to run in pitch black through the forest)
- working flashlights
- Custom made weapons
- Crossbow with reusable bolts
- Zombies can knock you out in one hit
