When over one million people are playing a PC mod you created, it's probably time to start thinking even bigger. Day Z, the zombie mod for ARMAII, is now becoming a standalone game. Development is being handled by Bohemia Interactive, creators of ARMAII, with Dean "Rocket" Hall, who started Day Z, acting as project lead.

"Development and updates of the mod will continue in parallel with the development of the game, so anyone who is playing the mod now will be able to continue to do so," Hall wrote on his blog. "The project will follow the Minecraft development model; fast iterations with the community alpha available for a heavily discounted price."

The official website promises future updates over the coming weeks and months.
