According to an announcement from a group called "GamersPlatoon Organization", a new ARMA2 mod has just been released that brings back the 'glory days' surrounding the original release of DayZ. Called DayZ Origins, the mod gives players the chance of finding "Patient Zero" the source of the zombie infection, Rebuild civilization and much more.
The world has gone to hell and you're right in the middle. There is more to life than just surviving, and now you have a purpose. What is this infection that has spread across the globe? Why are the dead walking again? Is there any hope in putting an end to this? There is only one way to find out, grab what supplies you can and get exploring.
