Bohemia Interactive has announced that its game, "DayZ," will be getting a full release version launch in the first half of 2016. The open-world zombie survival game has been in development for a year now with an alpha version released through an Early Access on Steam December last year.

"2014 has been an immensely successful year for DayZ. We could have never hoped for so many people to join us for the adventure of Early Access development," he said in a statement. more >>
