Bohemia Interactive has just announced the upcoming DayZ Free Weekend, starting on Thursday, February 13th (10 AM PST) and ending on Monday, February 17th (10 AM PST). To play DayZ for free, head over to the DayZ store page on Steam and install the game – it’s as simple as that.
For those infected by the DayZ experience, there will also be a 40% discount on the base game, as well as a 10% discount on the recently released Livonia DLC, should survivors wish to continue playing after the free weekend ends.
The free weekend comes on the heels of the 1.07 update, which focuses on bug-fixing, tweaks, and optimizations, and although introducing only a few new pieces of content – such as a new weapon and ammo types – it brings a huge addition to the map: Amusement Parks. To find out more about the new update, check out the full changelog.
DayZ recently won the Better With Friends award on Steam – a testament to the game’s ability to bring people together by providing an unforgiving environment where teamwork can mean the difference between life and death. This Valentine’s Day, players can take full advantage of the free weekend — Grab a friend or two, and venture out on a romantic stroll across the post-apocalyptic wasteland of DayZ. Remember: those who stick together, survive together!
The post-soviet country of Chernarus is struck by an unknown virus, turning the majority population into frenzied infected. Fighting over resources has bred a hostile mentality among survivors, driving what’s left of humanity to collapse. You are one of the few immune to the virus – how far will you go to survive?
DayZ is an unforgiving, authentic, open world sandbox online game where each one of 60 players on a server follows a single goal – to survive as long as they can, by all means necessary. Every decision matters – with no save games, and no extra lives, every mistake can be lethal. If you die, you lose everything and start over.
