Independently developed Arma II mod Day Z has passed the one million registered users milestone.
It's a tremendous achievement for creator Dean Hall, whose creation – which is completely free to download – has become one of the hottest properties in gaming since its release in June of this year.
Day Z sees gamers dumped into the Arma II gameworld with nothing to their name other than a bandage and flashlight. They must then find a way to survive in the gameworld, which is infested with both zombies and other players – the friendliness of whom cannot be relied upon.
Since release players have made off 22.5m survival attempts and murdered nearly 3.7m times.
1,214 years worth of gameplay has been logged and over 1.35tn kilometres have been walked.
