ArmA 2 Gets 500% Bump in Sales from Day Z Mod

A popular zombie survival mod has helped give military sim title ArmA 2 a huge spike in sales.

The mod, Day Z, is currently still in alpha, but that hasn’t stopped sales on Steam from skyrocketing thanks to its popularity. ArmA 2 developer Bohemia Interactive told Kotaku that sales have increased five-fold on Steam thanks to the new mod, and the developers intend to do some “related work” for the next update of the game based on the mod’s popularity.

The mod is the work of one of Bohemia’s employees, New Zealander Dean Hall, who has said the ArmA engine is perfect for what the mod entails and “was begging for a game like this.”

You can check out more information about the Day Z mod at its official website.

Thanks, VG247.

I encourage anyone who bought the game just for DayZ to check out both vanilla and other mods (such as ACE).

The engine can be wonky and buggy but ArmA II is a unique and wholly PC gaming experience you will not find anywhere else.
