The team here at FPS General has been hard at work organizing our very first DayZ tournament and we're proud to announce that it will be kicking off on Saturday, September 15th at 4:00PM Eastern Time!
DayZ: Showdown is a totally custom way to play DayZ where survival of the fittest is the order of the day. In DayZ: Showdown, a custom game modification created by MartinCreek and Rawr-Tech, players are spawned in an arena and equipped with the bare essentials to survive and hunt their enemies.
32 players will spawn in separate locations on a very specialized cut-down version of Chernarus, alone and poorly armed. Competitors will be given only a hunting knife, a hatchet, some bandages and very little else. To survive, players will make use of their foraging skills and the ability to remain unseen until you have managed to equip yourself with something more powerful than a Revolver with no ammunition. All high-powered rifles and snipers have been removed except the CS50 and any normally spawned weapons.
Food and water will be available in limited quantities with lengthy spawn times in between appearances.
To ensure that players don't wander beyond the specified play area, there are signs warning you that you're going in the wrong direction. Of course, the generous amount of land mines that we've littered around the out-of-bounds areas will also encourage players to stay within the specified boundaries.
Keep reading for more on the inaugural running of the FPS General DayZ: Showdown, including a full set of rules and regulations as well as information on how you can enter to be a competitor!
We have invited several top DayZ streamers to compete in the DayZ: Showdown but we still have around 25 of our 32 player slots available.
