ArmA II Sees Almost 500% Sales Bump Due to Zombies

ArmA II is a PC game. It’s a reasonably successful, very unforgiving, tactical PC FPS. But “reasonably successful” with those caveats is hardly going to have the boys at Treyarch looking over their shoulders, is it? Well now the Steam sales of that niche PC shooter have gone through the roof and it’s all because of zombies.

The Zombie craze is going strong

It's fun but there's not much to do except shoot other players and take their loot. You could build a chopper or cars but then what. It needs objectives/missions to keep it going.


I have the steam version and it run perfectly fine never had any problems with setup.

Does the mod work good with the Steam bundle of Arma 2?some have said it runs better on the retail version...

Im honestly thinkin about buyin a new PC for this, i watched 3-4 hours worth of DayZ on Youtube last week, i just laid there gettin stoned watchin these dudes run around doin stuff, it looks like loads of fun

I want it, hopefully a decent developer will take this idea and turn it into a full game next gen

I have ps3 and pc.. And even though I will enjoy The Last Of Us.. Think this is really the hardcore "The Walking Dead type of world I always wanted.." I hope The Arma Devs will try to make like this.

Imagine Arma 3 mods..

Yea, I actually read that the mod devs are going to make DayZ for Arma3 when it comes out.

Vladplaya2316d ago

You know if someone will pick up that idea, they will just make it piece of shit game to make quick buck, and then sell bunch of DLC.

I want this to stay mod, because people who make it, doing it because they want to, not because its their jobs and they have publishers micromanaging behind their backs.

i think your wrong.

look at how well left for dead was received. left 4 dead was a game mode on CS that was turned into its own game. i didn't get sold any DLC for that as it was all free.

Would love a Zombie game mode for GTA 5 multiplayer where you and some friends have to survive for 7 days before help comes. Forcing you to find water, first aid and food with limited ammo.

And the cars scattered around would have very little gas.

pr0digyZA2316d ago

That sounds exactly like dayz. except you can get a lot of strangers and you don't know who too trust because everyones out to survive, makes it quite nerve racking when you meet someone new.

This is how zombie games should be done, it's excellent. Loving it.

One of my co-workers told me about this mod, i'm buying arma 2 just to play it :D shame they still charhge so much for the game though

SPAM-FRITTER-1232316d ago

£25 for 60-100 hours of gameplay + multiplayer open world missions + create your own missions and share them and vice versa. also you get Dayz for free.

i bet you happily pay £40 for a 6 hour linear run and gun though.

xAlmostPro2316d ago

@Spam i understand you get a lot for your money with this game, however Arma 2 isn't everyones type of game and it's fairly old now.

My point was for an old game it's pricey, more so for people that just want to play day z(despite the mod obviously being free).

I'll be paying it anyway, anyway if it matters yes i'll pay that price for a 'linear' game, the difference is it's a new release when i pay that price. :)

@Stoney4 i could do, i'm eager to play day z though haha

Just wait for a Steam sale.
