Arma II developer backs standalone version of DayZ

Bohemia impressed by the popularity of Dean Hall's zombie mod for Arma II

The hit Arma II mod DayZ is to be made into a standalone game with the backing of Arma developer Bohemia Interactive.

Day Z creator Dean Hall is excited about the prospect and spoke of this being a fairytale outcome for his mod.

He began, "This is the fairytale outcome for a mod that many would have said impossible four months ago. Development and updates of the mod will continue in parallel with the development of the game, so anyone who is playing the mod now will be able to continue to do so. The project will follow the Minecraft development model; fast iterations with the community alpha available for a heavily discounted price."

"I realize people will have many, many questions - but we wanted to let everyone know the announcement now. Over the coming weeks, these questions will be answered. The game will have it's own site, www.dayzgame.com and the mod will continue at it's present link," Hall added.

Thanks MCV.
