DayZ Standalone Alpha Sells 88,000 in 12 Hours
Yesterday, seemingly out of nowhere, the highly awaited DayZ standalone was released on Steam Early Access for the price of $29.99. In 12 hours, the game sold over 88,000 copies despite being in Alpha and therefore still missing a lot of content and prone to bugs. Moreover, DayZ was also topping the charts over on Twitch.tv, beating out popular games such as Starcraft II and Dota 2.
I was personally going to hold off on buying the Alpha; I wanted to wait until the game was in better shape before purchasing it. From what people are saying, however, the game is very playable and a lot of fun, so expect the sales to rise even more in the coming days.
