DayZ is a survival horror videogame developed by Bohemia Interactive, only available for Windows PC. It is focused on multiplayer gameplay and open world elements. A huge success, this game sold over 80.000 copies in the first twelve hours and over 170.000 in twenty four hours after it was first released via Steam.
The main objective of the game is to stay alive for as long as you can in a city ruined by a zombie apocalypse. DayZ is set in Chernarus, a fictional post-Soviet state in which a virus has turned the population into violent flesh-eating beings. You have to explore the whole map looking for basic resources such as water, food, medicine or even clothes. Those items can be found by scavenging through houses, farms, abandoned vehicles, etc. To help you cross the vast map there are some vehicles available such as a bike - a fast and silent way to move without alerting anyone.
You have to take care of your character’s health, for instance feeding him correctly. Diseases are another major threat to your life, as your character can be affected by cholera, dysentery or hepatitis - contracting those by drinking polluted water or from the undead. However, you can resist disease by using the right medicines.
Survival of the fittest
When we talk about survival horror games we tend to think that zombies are the bad guys, trying to relentlessly eat whoever is still alive. But we are completely wrong. Zombies are just victims of the circumstances; the real bad guys are other survivors, and DayZ excels in demonstrating this fact.
The main objective is to stay alive as long as you can in a zombie apocalypse
Players can capture other players if they feel like it, keeping them as hostages or even handcuffing them to steal all their belongings. To prevent this happening to you, you are free to build a safe house in which you can gather all your objects so they can’t be stolen if you get caught. Additionally, you can clean up an area to make it safer for some time, as the undead will not re-spawn there for a while.
You have to team up with other trustworthy survivors to avoid being assaulted by hostile groups. You can communicate with other players using text and voice chat or using whispers, which allow you to send messages to other players across short distances. DayZ also offers radios that enable long distance communication, including encrypted frequencies and radio stations.

A Different Twist Has Been Given to a Zombie Apocalypse Game

It’s great how the developers of DayZ presented the game with a different twist. Unlike any other zombie games where you have to kill zombies to keep alive, DayZ requires its players to survive using their wit. Cool huh? Yeah, I thought so too! Apparently in this game, you can not only die of being killed by a zombie, but by getting sick or being attacked by other players. You also have to constantly feed your character to keep it alive. On a different take on the zombie apocalypse genre, DayZ characters must be kept alive by taking care of its health. Correct feeding and keeping it away from diseases could help you survive the game. Medicines are available throughout the game and can be found during scavenging hunts. These can be used to cure diseases which can be contracted from polluted water and dead bodies. Most importantly, you must choose who to approach, especially the living survivors. Many of them could potentially kill your character on the game. Fortunately though, you can also get to befriend other survivors and team-up with them.
- Medicines are available throughout the game
- You can build teams with other survivors
- Only available for Windows-based PCs
Amazingly Addicting and Unique Zombie Apocalypse Game for PC Only

The full version of the DayZ mod of Arma II is finally here! The rising popularity of zombie apocalypse movies and television shows nowadays contributed to the increasing players of this game. Counting me in as one of its fans, I really like how they presented the game. It reminds me of Call of Duty when it comes to graphic quality, but the story line is what takes me away. At first, you only have a flashlight with no weapons at all. You don’t even have any armor except the clothes you are wearing. You can enter buildings or houses, where you can find food, medicines, added clothing, and of course, weapons. It also reminds me of the 3rd season of Walking Dead where many of Rick’s people are stricken with an unidentified disease. In the game, you can also die of diseases if you’re not careful. Also to watch out for are the other survivors. They can either help you or kill you.
- Features realistic graphics and chilling sound track
- High exploration rate with its buildings
- Not suitable for game consoles
