A 225 km2 open world post-soviet state wiped out by an unknown infection. 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.

Dayz has come a long way since it's initial roots in Arma 2, having influenced many in development survival zombie games, and even spawned a copy cat. This update is probably one of the most important ones to date. Adding a nutritional system, delayed infection (Sepsis), ability to administer antibiotics on your friend (gives 20 humanity), craftable medical items, craftable weapons (and arrows), sea fishing, more userfriendly UI (ongoing), a new weapon (SVD) and more.
