DayZ Standalone

DayZ Standalone is still selling like hotcakes and it wasn’t long ago that it had reached the 850,000 mark. Today it reached a new milestone.

In just four weeks the rough alpha version has now sold 1 million copies according to Bohemia Interactive CEO Marek Špan?l who Tweeted the news this evening.

It’s quite astonishing that a game that is so low on actual content, is riddled with bugs, and one that we’ve even be warned against buying by the developer himself is doing so well.

If you read my impressions piece which was posted earlier today it pretty much sums up the state of the game currently. There’s still so much to do with the game to make it a really exciting gaming experience but that has not deterred PC gamers from buying into the concept.

With the game unlikely to actually be finished until the end of the year or even 2015 the influx of cash will hopefully speed up some of the development process which, let’s face it, has been quite slow.

What is obvious is that PC gamers are having fun running around in a game world with each other, a world that has few rules and one that will bring out the best and worst in all of us.
