For good reason.
An excellent game, despite the accusations that it is merely a DayZ clone.

WarZ was a DayZ clone and that ended up nowhere. Rust is too much of a unique experience to share the same fate.

It's the same genre (survival), but is not even close to being the same game. Those comparisons are ridiculous.

It started out as a DayZ clone which has been recognized by the developers (see official website). DayZ was the inspiration for the game.

It has definitely come a long way and is a different experience from DayZ.

But i thought PC gamers were all pirates?!?

Don't be fooled. PC gamers love and DEMAND DRM/always-on to buy a game. They're just 'selective'.

Kind of 'no DRM, no buy', if you know what I mean.

Oh, like how Starbound early access hit over 1 million sales despite having no proper DRM?

I have seen a lot of talk about this game! I'll have to check it out :)

If possible could anyone give me a good rundown of the game?

very short synopsis.. you start naked (pants on if you pick censored mode) with just a rock... you've to survive while dealing with your hunger, building shelter, radiation, scavenging for parts/materials and fending off other human players

there is also period "drops" that drop the good stuff but generally players swarm towards it and if you've no weapon you're likely going to die.

watch the "let's play" by eurogamer, Ian Higton is a laugh to watch and does silly roleplays in the game which makes it more enjoyable... personal opinion of course
