Description

Day Z for PC is a survival game set against the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse. It is located in a fictional area, the post-Soviet Chernarus (a portmanteau of Chernobyl/ Russia perhaps?), where the outbreak has seen most of the population become infected. The game is both first person and third person shooter multiplayer game.

About the Game


The premise is simple: the player must survive and achieve his or her mission without being infected by the aggressive zombies. As with many survival games, the player starts off with the bare minimum: the clothes they stand up in, a road flare and a rag. Using these, the player must explore the large world around them, venturing (carefully) into buildings and houses in search of supplies which include food and water that are vital to staying healthy and alive.

Finding other garments allows the player to increase their carrying capacity so they can carry extra food, items to stay warm and weapons. Weapons tend to be melee weapons, but there are a small number of firearms to be scavenged too, so do keep your eyes open and explore each building and area of interest thoroughly

Stay Healthy


It is not only the zombie outbreak that players have to worry about, there are many other diseases waiting to strike down the unwary player. These include hepatitis, cholera and dysentery which are caught by drinking unsanitary water or eating rotten food. These conditions must be cured with the appropriate medications, which must be scavenged and saved until needed.

If injured, players will bleed which will weaken them – losing clarity of vision and even becoming unconscious, which is not an ideal state when zombies are roaming about – unless bandaged promptly to stop the blood flow.

Players can build shelters in which they can be safe while recovering or while making plans for future missions. There are hundreds of open access games for players to read embedded in the game too.

Stay in Communication


The multiplayer aspect of the game is highly important with communication with other online players paramount. When your character is within hailing distance of another, you will be able to talk to each other using the microphones in your headset:

  • If you do not have a mic through which to speak, you can still communicate via a text box which will pop up on your screen

  • Players can also communicate on a basic level with body movements and hand gestures – for example, if you want to surrender, you can raise your avatar’s hands over their head in the traditional submissive pose

  • A ‘Whisper Channel’ is in production, which will allow allies to talk to each other without nearby enemies being able to overhear the plan. This will allow subtle stealth campaigns to be planned and executed, raiding camps and buildings that are controlled by others, without your plan being broadcast to the nearby world – including the people you are about to pounce on!

  • Radios, too, are being considered, mainly as a form of two way communication, but also with the possibility of a player run radio station being incorporated into the game so if you have a budding DJ inside you, watch out for the introduction of this feature so you can entertain fighters and zombies alike with your wit, erudition and good taste in music

  • Day Z for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    horrible, no loot, boring, just walking between houses to find a shirt, a jacket, get killed, repeat. Theres no crafting, no base building, there barely vehicles i guess, but all i could find were trashed

    Great survival game when you get the hang of the controls great game though i love that large community but its toxic non the less honestly almost never had a issue with the mechanics besides when i started
    • large community with tons of servers
    • realistic guns, combat mechanics, and realistic health
    • official servers take 1 minute and 15 seconds
    • when blood is low it makes it black and white which is annoying

    Best Survival game ever .

    Everything in this game is awesome. Looting, questing, PVE and PVP. It's all good. This game is a masterpiece, especially if you love survival games. You definently never rage playing this game.

    I had high hopes as it checked all the boxes for what I've been looking for but playing for roughly less than 2 hours of play i got bored as was playing with a friend and grew bored immediately after not being able to find my buddy. Ended up with a huge headache after getting off the game big pass from me.

    Honestly for me the game is a huge waste of money, it isn't like in the videos. Rust is so muche better and funnier than dayZ.

    Well, that was my opinion on the game if you thing it is better well good for you

    Great game, virtually no bugs, and definitely worth the money. Graphics leave something to be desired, but that is to be expected from a game this old. But definitely worth it for the money. Good game

    As a fan of more hardcore survival games and all, Dayz hit the spot, would recommend for anyone interested in big maps with lots of weapons and hardcore PvE.

    This is kinda like bigger scale EFT and smaller scale Arma, its truly a masterpiece.
    • Uses your GPU more than your CPU, chances are your GPU is stronger so thats good.
    • Fairly friendly community
    • Looks great and runs very well even on max settings
    • Can have quite the Stutters but compared to Arma and other titles its good
    • Hard to get into but the experience is fun
    • Jumpscares :D

    very bad, total waste of my money. i have been plaing rust lately and that is soooo much better. in dayz i only managed to play 2.5 hours, no more. constantly looking for food/water. zombies kill you, find no other supplies.

    i find it really strange that there is no map at all on the game, i mean. WTF?

    you need to find the map online but youl first need to find a sign to say where you are... trust me dont buy this. complete waste of money

    DayZ is a tough one. The vanilla game is insultingly unfinished and not worth the price at all. This game has been out for years and its still in an alpha state basically, its really bad in some places! But then theres mods.... well actually its not just the mods. Luckily, DayZ has some thriving communities to this day and if you get some mods, join a good server and group with some fun people you can have some really awesome experiences. It is so hard to rate this game because it is such a subjective experience; all games are of course, but the places this game can take you can vary so much from person to person. You have some people with thousands of hours of playtime who will tell you DayZ is videogame gold and then you can have someone who looks at the base game and rightfully calls it a piece of trash.
    • potential for great and varied experiences
    • mods (!)
    • some very nice communities
    • tons of bugs
    • unfinished
    • vanilla game is really bland
    • potentially repetitive

    Trying to be honest:
    I enjoyed Dayz for the first few days. Sure, technical issues here and there, but the exploration and looting were fine.

    Then stuff went down quick:
    I've spent the last days grinding and looting around to build some sort of base and storage. During one of my usual drives to a Milbase, my game had a brutal CTD that I have never experienced before (Excess of memory usage I suppose). I came back on a couple minutes later, just to find out that my Survivor had died, my car had despawned and my stuff, including the base, had disappeared.
    Server admins couldn't help me, as stuff like this is almost normal.

    I mean, I didn't spend too much money on this game, but why the hell are these technical issues still there after so much time? This is NOT how you manage a game.

    Seven days, and I've already had my fill.
    • The "original" survival game
    • Way too many technical issues
    • Updates that force community admins to wipe servers everytime
    • Too frustrating

    Das Game ist Tod,viele Server keine Spieler man rennt 20 km um eine Axt zu finden und wird dann nach 30 min farmen ehrenlos von einem russischen Random weggeballert und fängt den ganzen Müll von vorne an.
    30 Euro ist ein Witz.

    Kauft euch nicht so ein Dreck
    • OpenWorld
    • große Serverauswahl
    • ohne Mods unspielbar
    • 10km Weg für ein Item
    • teuer AF
