DayZ Leaves Early Access Next Week

Bohemia Interactive announces the seemingly endless dayz of Early Access for DayZ will come to an end next week with the official release of the survival shooter on December 13th. We'd say the zombie game is shambling out at that time, but that still sounds rushed since this will be almost five years to the day after Early Access began. Here's word, including the tip that there's still time to buy the game before it switches to its full price:

Bohemia Interactive today announced that DayZ, the open world, online survival game, is launching worldwide on PC on December 13th. Originally releasing as a Steam Early Access title in 2013, DayZ has attracted over 4,000,000 players and received a complete technology overhaul during its 5 years of development, along with numerous new features.

The post-soviet country of Chernarus is struck by an unknown virus, turning the majority population into frenzied infected. Fighting over resources has bred a hostile mentality among survivors, driving what’s left of humanity to collapse. You are one of the few immune to the virus – how far will you go to survive?

DayZ is an unforgiving, authentic survival experience. Up to 60 survivors on a server engage in a completely unscripted gameplay scenario with no goals given, except for one: to survive as long as they can, by all means necessary. There are no superficial tips, way-points, built-in tutorials, or help given to players. Every decision matters, and every mistake can be lethal. If you die in DayZ, you lose all your character progress and start over, as the game features a permadeath concept.

In DayZ, hostile player interactions – or simply just struggling through severe weather – can easily turn into intense, nerve-racking moments where you experience very real emotions. On the other hand, meeting with another friendly survivor in DayZ can lead to a true friendship that lasts a lifetime.

In November, Bohemia Interactive released the Stable BETA update for DayZ. This was overall the biggest update to the game, with over a year’s worth of development dedicated to it. Along the way, players subscribed to the Experimental branch were able to witness major engine level changes and gameplay improvements.
Since the BETA update delivered all the core elements that make the DayZ gameplay, the development shifted focus to bugfixing and generally improving the available content and features for the upcoming 1.0 update. With the help of community feedback and bug reports, the developers have identified over 400 issues since the BETA release, and resolved nearly 900 of them in total (including both the new issues, and ones reported before the BETA).

The 1.0 update will launch on Thursday, December 13 at 19:00 CET. Until then, DayZ is still available for its Early Access Alpha price of $34.99 / £22.99 / €27.99. After launching the 1.0 update, DayZ will be sold for $44.99 / £31.99 / €37.99 on Steam and continue receiving new content and features during post-launch development and support. The development road-map for post 1.0 content will be established and presented at the beginning of next year.

DayZ is also out now in Xbox Game Preview, with the full launch scheduled for early 2019, and is also coming to PlayStation 4 later in 2019. Please reach out to contacts below to receive a Steam review package or to ask us any questions!

If they raise the price on this after leaving their 5 year early access, given the competition they have in the battle royale/survival genres now, I don't expect they will sell more than a handful of copies. That would just be an incredibly stupid move on their part.

To think that the mod had close to 1 million players at one point and now essentially is dead and the standalone also only has a few thousand players left...
Well, I guess thats normal if you die to a cold because you were in the rain for 5 minutes or starve to death 5 hours after you ate so much that you almost vomited.
Not being the center of a hype can be very advantageous. You have a dedicated player bas. Word of mouth can bring in a small and steady influx of new players, who are interetest in the game becasue of the game and not because everynone is playing it. The game therefore isnt full of shitbags.

I mean.. I've been playing it with all the major patches. It's come a long way, and if nothing else, has me amped for ARMA 4 due to how much drastically better DayZ runs than ARMA 3.
