In case you are not familiar with DayZ, the game is set in a vast open-world with minimal resources, which are required for you to survive. Players have to traverse this huge world and search for materials, food and other items that will help them survive the post-apocalyptic zombie setting and encounters with other players. 

DayZ was originally created as Arma 3 mod but due to its popularity, it released as a standalone title.
