An entry titled “DayZ Early Access” recently popped up in the Steam Database, which could mean the long anticipated release of the DayZ standalone may not be too far away. Joystiq sought clarification on the entry, but the game’s creator Dean Hall wouldn’t confirm anything.
“All I can say is that progress has been very good, we’re a mix of nervous and excited. And as I’d stated on my twitter when I announced my break from social media/updates, we are on the final lap. Part of the final process involves the actual administration of the release, which is actually surprisingly complex and time-consuming,” Hall said.
If you aren’t excited for the DayZ standalone, here are five reasons why you should be. Hopefully we’ll be able to get our hands on this before the end of the year.
