Trust - Why DayZ is Early Access done Right

Trust - Why DayZ is Early Access done Right - MMORPG.com

Just over a year ago, in December of 2013, a little game known as DayZ was released to the public on Steam Early Access. Just last week, an anniversary notice, video, and a 2015 roadmap were released to show where the game has been and indicate where it is going. Along with that came an update to the experimental build. Altogether, the game has sold 2,830,000 copies as of December 16th, 2014. With a consistent presence on the Steam charts, frequent updates, a favorite of streamers, and as a platform for friendly and not so friendly trolling, DayZ might just be the best current example of Early Access done right since Steam launched the program. I’ve been thinking about trust in this age of so many ways to pay for games before they’re ever remotely finished.
