Fans were hoping to get their hands on the DayZ standalone last year, but that didn’t happen so Dean Hall and his team could introduce some major changes to the game. Speaking with Joystiq, Hall provided an update on the game’s progress, saying the earliest we can expect the alpha version is in June. That’s when they’ll begin sending out batches of keys to several thousand players to test how the servers handle the increased load.
Hall is also looking into launching a tiered distribution model, inspired by Kickstarter, so players can pay to get into the alpha as well as get other DayZ goods. If June is just too far away, you can grab the mod now available on Steam, or enjoy this new fan-made DayZ web series.
