Developer: Bohemia Interactive
Story: DayZ places players in a fictional post-Soviet state named Chernarus, where an unknown virus has turned most of the population into undead, violent zombies. As a survivor with limited supplies, you must scavenge the world for food, water, weapons, and medicine, while killing or avoiding zombies, and killing, avoiding or co-opting other players in an attempt to survive the zombie apocalypse.
