DayZ Alpha Released on Steam

Rejoice, survivors, DayZ has been released on Steam! Since this is an early access release, I should probably preface this with “it’s an alpha version”, but if you’ve been playing the Arma 2 mod then I feel like you could stomach a few bugs and glitches here and there, especially when this is a much fuller, more realized world, and closer to Rocket’s vision. On top of that, it’s only $29.99 currently. Once it gets out of alpha, I imagine the price will be raised. It does kind of sting if you’re an early adopter because you’ll have to purchase this game all over again, but I feel it’s worth the money if it means a better game.

In lieu of the release, it appears that┬áBohemia Interactive has released a proper trailer for the game. They are a bit of a Debbie downer since it seems to highlight the player vs player aspect of the game, and the end scene is a long drawn out suicide, but it does paint the game in a very intriguing light as it asks more questions than it answers. I’ll be purchasing my copy soon, let’s just hope Debbie can lift my spirits with actual gameplay and survival.
