There is a mod for it called Breaking Point. It's a lot like DayZ. I would recommend downloading it and playing it to see if you like it since it's free for the weekend.

I like it though.

I think I will buy this game since it got some nice other mods as well. DayZ Epoch will arrive very soon on and I really like the Battle Royale mod in this game. You guys should check it out on YT!

This is a video on Epoch; he's starting to talk about it around 3:00. I don't know which guys made which mod/SA exactly, but I believe this is from the same guys that made the Arma II mod. However, no zombies this time, so I don't know if you guys like that or not.

Battle royale is a mod not related to DayZ but I just wanted to mention it since I really like the concept of it. Basically everybody paradrops in at the beginning of the game and starts to gear up. Then, it turns into a game of 'last man standing' with some small additions and a playing field that's getting smaller and smaller. The guy from the video above has some videos on it too, as well as Gassymexican (who really sucks in it btw).

Yea I actually like the mod much better than the DayZ standalone. Getting tired of all the cheating through the walls.

This is for those who do not have Day Standalone (DZ) or played Arma 3 Breaking Point (BP).

If you were to get one or the other...at this point I would recommend buying Arma III and getting the free BP mod. 

Both games are in currently in alpha but BP is much further ahead (even without the financial background). Sad to say but BP is beating DZ hands down at this point. Don't get me wrong, DZ is still a lot of fun but as an insider with knowledge of both games BP is leagues ahead.

According to the DayZ website they have 2,075,551 players (as of 5/21/14) playing the game. At $29.99 per player thats....$62,266,530.00. (AND ITS IN ALPHA!!!!!!!!!!!) There have been no significant changes for 3 weeks now (pushing 4).

BP (also in alpha) on the other hand is free and the updates and content are much further ahead of DZ. 

Both games are based on the exact same objectives (survive) and the exact same dynamics (food, water, etc...)

BP has a class system which discourages Kill on Sight (KoS) and promotes teamplay. The other night Kook and myself came across 2 players who at first we thought were hostile (and we hunted), ended up being friendlies. We gamed with them all night...something you can't say with DZ. 

If you like TDM style matches go with DZ. If you like team play and strategy go with BP.

That's it for now.....
