OP  3/12/14 10:37:35 AM#1

Even though it's a free mod with bugs and glitches, I rate this open-ended sandbox game as my #4 favorite game of all time. You can do whatever the hell you want. It's a virtual world with very few rules, and you can custom build, craft, or modify buildings with very little restriction, even pre-built game buildings. Almost everything can eventually be destroyed, except safes, which keeps the focus on multi-player interactions rather than an npc grind.

This is the video that got me started a couple of months ago. I had Arma 2 which I played maybe once or twice and had no idea such mods were available:

Running Scared!

http://youtu.be/SeTfkHYJiA4

For those that have not tried it yet, it's a free mod for Arma 2 Combined Operations that plays like an MMO, but with no subscription fee. Right now you can get Combined Operations for only $6.23https://store.bistudio.com/arma2-games

I recommend using either Play withSIX or DayZ Commander to install and update DayZ Epoch. These utilities pretty much automate everything.

I don't recommend the DayZ standalone that is being created, it sucks in comparison to Epoch. Maybe it will get better, but I doubt it. I think it's being developed more for making money rather than purely out of passion like DayZ Epoch.

Probably the biggest improvement that could be made to the game, aside from cleaning up the clunky interface and bugs, is to make it an actual MMO with thousands of players per server instead of 50-100. But it's still a lot of fun even with only a few dozen online at once. Arma 3 Epoch is also in development, which should be an improvement.

Here is the Epoch development website: http://epochmod.com

I just found an Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead demo at Fileplanet: http://www.fileplanet.com/214473/download/ArmA-2:-Operation-Arrowhead-Demo

Not sure if it will work for DayZ Epoch, but I'll try it out later and post any required steps.

Day Z better get some real funding and some real devs, because SOE is about to steamroll through and leave nothing but ashes.

The big boys have come out to play, Day Z needs to take its ball and go home.

A F2P zombie MMO from SOE? No, I don't think it will do much damage to either of those games.. DayZ Epoch is very nice game but SA is better, imo. I agree, SA has a long way to go, but already the new content is beginning to make the game so much better than the mods. Rocket is a dick, yeah, but just recently he announced his depature at the end of the year and the current dev team just doubled in size.

I have only few bad words about the mods though. I have played them for countless hours and they have entertained me better than most MMOs on the market. But I believe the game is better off with a stable development team. SA has a long way to go but I sincerely hope it will deliver.

[mod edit]

If anything what you will get from a large corporation will be anything but 'real' because they always cater to the lowest common denominator merely for profits rather than realism. You will get a dumbed down zombie game that will be as unrealistic as possible, because the masses are scared to die or lose anything in a game.

You will never see anything commercial that will ever compare to DayZ Epoch. What you will get is a WoW game with a zombie skin, practically guaranteed. Even DayZ Standalone promises to be very watered down compared to DayZ Epoch.

DayZ Epoch is open PvP and full loot. When you die, you start over and everything on your body drops to the ground. That is realism. You're not going to see anything close to that in H1Z1, what you're going to get is a zombie themepark with none of the risk, danger, excitement, and competition of DayZ Epoch. You probably won't  be able to custom build bases, and you probably won't have realistic military gear and game systems to play with either.

On top of everything else, you're going to have to pay $50 and $10-15 monthly fee to be subjected to the corporate pile of crap which they will call a zombie game.

Get DayZ Epoch for $6 and you can build and play a realistic and dangerous zombie game indefinitely without a subscription.

You guys are victim of mass marketing.

Calm down. No need to get upset.

HIZI is years away from release. However, one thing is certain that it is not a themepark.

I believe in quality product and Day Z Epoch doesn't look like one.

I've been playing MMOs since the very beginning, so I am in fact very experienced and wise, thank you very much. This is just the way things are. Games developed purely out of passion, like DayZ Epoch, are often excellent, while games developed purely for profit are often piles of crap.

Don't be a sucker.

 

 

 

 

 

Well let me look at SOEs track record for me and then lets see if I'm a sucker. EQ1 was by far the number one game for me I have played in my MMO Experiance. I also played vanguard thru all the bad parts because the game was huge open immersive, and for me better than 95% of the crap that is released today. EQ2 while I was amped up for turned out to be a let down. But I came back to it years later and had a good time there. Planetside 2 is an absolute blast to play. The only game of theirs that I have played I didn't care for much was DCU, and it wasn't terrible. 

So you call me a sucker when I am amped that a company that have put out at least 2 of my top 3 games then ya.. I say you got it wrong. .. I trust SOE a lot more than an indie dev team with limited to no resources. I have tried my share from teams like that and usually walk away unimpressed of feeling like i wasted my time, thinking it might be good.

Well, it all depends upon what you expect out of a zombie apocalypse game. You mentioned you will wait for a real zombie MMO, but you're not going to get a real one from SOE. If you're just looking for another adventure game similar to EQ, but with a zombie theme, then I'm sure that's what you'll get. And, maybe you're the type that will enjoy that.

But if you're looking for a more realistic survival game, based upon a military simulator like Arma 2, where your actions have real benefits and consequences, where you are truly competing with other players, and where you can craft and construct custom buildings any way you like, you're going to be greatly disappointed with SOE's zombie game.

DayZ Epoch is not DayZ. They are two very different games. DayZ is more of shooter, while DayZ Epoch is more of sandbox. There are no player built buildings and there is very little crafting in DayZ.

Well I for one can personally attest to the fact that SOE has put out a multitude of different types of games with different types of play styles, so to sit here and claim it's from SOE, and that they can't, or will not make a survival based game that is more realistic is a bit far fetched. Especially when that exactly what they stated that's what they are wanting to do. And I bet they can and most likely will do it better than any indie company can. Yes I have that much faith in them. Has SOE made some mistakes in the past? Sure thing.  However they have also made some of the best games to ever grace the MMO market. At least IMHO

I know some people that should be pretty excited about this.  They've been generally disappointed with DayZ SA and have still been playing the hell out of the Arma mods.  Hopefully this will get them looking this way again.

Sempiternal;

 

I am really thankful I caught your post; DLING arma 2/OA as I write. Personally I have been looking for a wasteland Day Z since I played Wasteland 1.5 years ago :P I am just wondering how one secures a base? Doors can be locked or what? This mod sounds really awesome and I'm excited to test it out. 

as for SoE being a decent company I am offended by that!!! my favorite mmo was destroyed by them and nothing has competed with it since. every game has been a perpetual failure; while I wait for the repopulation! I think EQ next could be fun though if its a open world buliding/pvp game with looting options.
