If you are one of the 875,000 people that paid $30 for the DayZ Alpha, you might be interested in today's announcement. The good news is that, with no beta until the end of the year, you'll have the game all to yourselves. Coincidentally, that's also the bad news.
The DayZ Alpha is available for early adopters from Steam for 23.99 Euros. Please be aware that our Early Access offer is a representation of our core pillars, and the framework we have created around them. It’s a work in progress and therefore contains a variety of bugs. We strongly advise you not to buy and play the game at this stage unless you clearly understand what Early Access means and are interested in participating in the ongoing development cycle. Please keep in mind that we do not expect to reach Beta status sooner than the end of 2014.
