More About DayZ
Since December 1st DayZ private servers owners can ask for an admission fee and accept donations from players. Bohemia Interactive is currently doing a test run of the monetization system to see how it works in their zombie-themed MMO.
DayZ received a big content update adding 75-player servers, new weapons and gear, and more. The 0.59 patch is currently available in the experimental branch, where players can help test it.
DayZ will get a single player mode and equip the players with tools to host their own servers. In the future, the game will use the Steam Workshop functionality to help modders. DayZ is expected to enter the beta phase by the end of the year.
