DayZ is an unforgiving & immersive online open world game where each player follows a single goal - to survive as long as they can, by any means necessary.
Stagger into a harsh post-apocalyptic landscape and fight for your life with up to 60 players on a single server, where an infected nation of zombies is just one of the many things that can kill you. Starvation, infection, blood loss & other players are all out to make each day your last. Will you attempt to survive solo, or team up with friends to battle the hostile world together?
