DayZ actually launches with version 1.0, conditions in the underworld described as ‘chilling’

The day we never thought would arrive has arrived. DayZ has actually launched version 1.0. It has launched. It’s actually arrived at launch. No one is quite sure what to do at this point, but once we finish up with the Porcine Aviation League that has just been founded, we’re sure that we’ll come to some sort of conclusion. Steam charts has noted the game doing better over the last month than it has for the past six or so year it’s been in early access.

Until then, you can actually download and try the game absolutely for free; it’s offering a free download-and-play through December 17th, for anyone who longs to see how the game’s finished version feels without buying in. It’s also on sale for 15% off the Early Access price through the 17th, at which point it will be bumped up to its launch price of $45. The game is also slated for Xbox and PlayStation 4 release in 2019. Now to do something about that freeze taking place in the realm of the sinful dead.

Better late than never I suppose lol.
Even if it has long since lost its appeal.

I won’t say much, but I do still feel the need to say I think this game has really delivered on the promise of what the fun-but-broken Arma 2 mod was long ago.

Yeah, it “arrived at launch” and an actual “version 1.0” was released. What a joke. It isn’t feature complete, it’s still broken and buggy as hell. Good luck, fanbois. All 23 users playing right now, that is.

Only took them, what, 5 years since the craze died down?

Wait! This wasn’t supposed to happen yet. I clearly predicted, in MOP comments, that DayZ wouldn’t launch until 2031.

Guess I was wrong again. :(

about damn time.

… I have to admit that the part where they build a car from spare parts looked cool.

That’s old news drivable vehicles have been in game for years. My only issues with the game was the lack of a permanent map and all the signs were in Russian. It was fun though and yes I have had the game for years. The zombies aren’t too bad the other players on the other hand. 😈

Did it launch? Huh. Well, good luck to them.

Will the game go back to early access now? It seems like it should.

It will on consoles so, looking forward to many more years of “its alpha bro”.
