    "DayZ standalone is out!"

    *Early access Alpha for 24€*

    Yeahhhh... "out".
    Funny how this whole beta testing thing has turned upside-down after MC's success. People used to be paid (maybe not much, but still) for beta testing, nowdays people pay to beta test.

    Let's see how this thing fares when it's actually finished.

    Is it still possible to play on US servers from EU? My enjoyment from the game dramaticaly increased when anyone that could kill me was sleeping.

    I've been paid to beta test before. It is nothing like early access.

    With early access you are just playing an incomplete game. If you want to be a helpful tester and try to find things that are broken, then that's on you. You aren't forced to do it.

    But actual beta testers never get to just play the game. They are given a laundry list of pointless and monotonous activities to perform in the game world to see if they can find things that don't work or figure out why something isn't working.

    Tried it for an hour. It's like an extremely polished version of DayZ in looks, won't comment on performance side(as per "Beta = Beta" rule, Alpha in this case) but turned on every single thing to max and got ~25 FPS. Might have to mess around with those settings tomorrow when I got more time.

    -Animations are very nice, player models are semi-customizable(different shirt color, pants color and boots color)
    -Controls have been cleaned up(although not yet re-bindable), ARMA 2 had a ton of "WTF are those for?!" kind of controls
    -Sweet and clean UI, much better than ARMA 2 UI.

    I bought this game, took me a few minutes to figure out the flash light, and i ended up dehydrating or something and falling unconscious. Didn't see 1 zombie and my areas were picked clean of supplies.

    Very, very well put. I was more or less forced into playing the original game by friends. I scorned the idea. It was overly punative, I thought. A bit masochistic -- maybe even boring.

    It's quite an enigmatic beast, it brings out the animal in all types of gamers. Sociologists would do well to look into DayZ communities.

    Then I just... turned down the lights in my room and got into it. Got way, way into it. I started using the proximity voice chat and stuff. I think I must have binged a solid 150+ hours in a couple weeks.

    Lovely thing, that.

    I remember being in a truck full of squad mates, all in ghillies and CCO SD M4 rifles and we picked up a few bambies, brought them up a quiet road, forced them out at gun point and put them 30 yards apart. We layed down two hatchets on the ground between them and told them the first one to equip the hatchet and kill the other guy gets a reward.

    We gave the victor a bike and the locations to our old base we had rigged with C4. He got there and blew up the second he went for a tent.

    Ive never played dayz or warz, but I followed WarZ for a bit. That turned out to be a real shitfest before I was really able to buy it. The cash shop thing killed it for me, glad I didnt waste my money.

    Does/will this have a cash shop?

    If so, I will pass. If it's a b2p and that's it, Im all over this.

    It doesn't have one planned right now, and I doubt that they will. Rocket is actually a decent developer.

    It doesn't have any kind of shop at all.

    Nope, you buy the game now, put up with a buggy Alpha build for awhile and play.
    If you played the mod, you can play this. This is not a Pay2Win kind of game.

    Never got on the DayZ hype train, but I'll definitely watch how this progresses.
