Here’s The Full Release Road Map For ‘DayZ’

Open-world zombies will be signed, sealed and delivered in the first half of 2016.


The open-world zombie game, DayZ, has been open to the public since December of 2013 through Steam Early Access, though the game is still a ways off from being a finished project. However, the game’s developer, Bohemia Interactive, has gone on record saying that the full version of the game will show up some time in the first half of 2016. As I said, it’s a ways off.

The full version of the game will cost $50, with the Early Access version currently going for $35. The console versions are even further off, though, so there is no pricing plans for those (though they will more than likely be $60).

Bohemia Interactive said the following about DayZ in response to the game selling 2 million copies in Early Access:

“2014 has been an immensely successful year for DayZ. We could have never hoped for so many people to join us for the adventure of Early Access development.”

The following is road map of what the developers plan to add to the game between now and the game’s eventual release in the first half of 2016:
