Bohemia clamps down on 'Bounty' DayZ gambling mod

Bohemia Interactive has instructed developers of a DayZ ‘gambling’ mod to cease work on the title as it claims it undermines the original experience.

As reported by VG247, the unofficial mod, called DayZ Bounty, charges users between $5 to $20 to play, and rewards players with real money for kills. 

ArmA developer Bohmeia however has claimed that this mod undermines the work done by the original team, and has distanced itself from any association with the new mod.

“The DayZ development team and Bohemia Interactive is not involved or has had any contact with with DayZ Bounty and it’s creators,” said a DayZ spokesperson.

“While we fully support modifications created by the community to improve the gaming experience for players of DayZ and ArmA II, we do not support their creators putting a cost on them. As commercially exploiting their small additions to DayZ undermines the work done by the original team.”
