After just a few months in alpha testing, DayZ has officially surpassed over 1,000,000 registered users. As of the time of this writing, the number is sitting at 1,001,793 - quite the impressive number for a game that is actually just a mod of a different game.
Have you jumped on board the DayZ train, yet?
With all the hype surrounding the game, we definitely encourage you to give it a shot. Rest assured that the hype is well deserved, and DayZ is a ton of fun to play - particularly with a group of friends. Surviving in a bleak, desolate environment has never been this much fun nor have we felt so satisfied in building something from nothing as we do in DayZ.
If you're still on the fence about DayZ, we encourage you to check out our DayZ channel on Own3D.tv where we stream DayZ on a regular basis. Check out our VODs and see the game in action to see if it's something you'd be interested in picking up
If you end up grabbing DayZ, make sure to check out the DayZ Wiki to help get started in the game. Congratulations to Dean 'Rocket' Hall on the exponential success of DayZ and here's to a standalone game in the near future!
