DayZ Modification for Arma II

We've gotten a bunch of notes over the past week for the DayZ Modification for Arma II, Bohemia Interactive Studios' military shooter sequel (thanks LittleMe and Slippery_Jim). The requirements call for Arma II: Combined Operations, as Arma 2 free does not support modifications. Here's word on the mod's zombie-killing action:

Realistic "Zombies" with custom animations - These once human creatures will act and behave as if they have a heighten sense of hearing and smell but less sight, on top of that they use motion captured animations such as walking and eating from your unconscious body. If you look into any built up area you'll see them walking around waiting for their next victim which dares to venture in.

New weapons and vehicles! - Ever felt like you needed a Crossbow? Or maybe a less military like weapon? If you have then this is perfect for you as we have both of these created to high quality standards all ready for your use in this wasteland. On top of that you can even pick up the bolts fired from the Crossbow to reuse! Not only that we also have created custom vehicles which can be repaired and ridden around to show the world what you're made of!

Right now the sudden high demand for Arma 2 is crippling the Steam servers.
The demand for Arma 2 hardly registers on steam:

4k peak players on Arma 2 today through steam, compare to 42k on TF2 and CS of 58k. Even Garry's mod had almost 50% more players.
Content server stats (none of them are maxed):

I'm sure its doing decent sales, but its not "crippling" to steam.

Sales numbers and peak players numbers are two different things. The recommended way to launch the DayZ mod uses a separate launcher. If you use the launcher, Steam doesn't register you as running the game. So there are likely quite a few people playing that won't show up in the peak players tally.
