Efter mycket suktande är nu en första fristående version frisläppt på Steam.
Det tog kanske lite längre tid än vad många hade trott men nu är den fristående versionen av #Dayz släppt på Steams Early Access-program. "Er chans att uppleva Dayz medan det föds fram ur utvecklingsprocessen" meddelar frontmannen Dean Hall på den officiella hemsidan. Alltså, betala för att testa alpha-versionen i väntan på spelet släpps på riktigt.
KEY FEATURES IN ALPHA
