An Innocent DayZ Bus Ride Turns Into A Fight For Survival

A lot of zombie fiction seeks to explore the dark underbelly of humanity -- sure, there are flesh-eating undead shambling around, but we are the real monsters. DayZ, the popular Arma II mod, captures that human desperation and darkness in an often unsettling manner.

In this video, a man gets onto a bus. His drivers promise him a refugee camp where he can get all sorts of great gear and weaponry; all he has to do is lay down his arms and go on a ride. After that comes… well… watch it for yourself.

    That was incredible. I guess I know what I'm playing this weekend...

      I spent 3 hours last night lost in the woods, I don't know if I was going in circle or what. :|

      Last night i spent 2 hours playing with a guy we met each other when we had hatchets we eneded up with awesome kit he then attempted to murder me and i had to shoot and kill him. He managed to wound me and i didnt have time to apply a bandage. I passed out from the pain. The shots attracted zombies which then proceeded to eat me. i died at 10:31pm neither one of us gained from his betrayal.

    Those guys are f**ked up!
    Man thats disturbing!

    Awesome. I love that these guys created an experience that would be right at home in any post apocalyptic movie. And the fact they let him go alive was great, strangely honourable.

    I really want to try Day Z but I fear there may be too many downloads (even if I get ARMA2 retail) I've strechted my internetcap enough fpr this month

      EB Games sell it. I saw pre orders for the next expansion on their site :)

    that's actually scary. Those guys would probably try to do this in real life if zombies rose up and took over the world.
    Human kind worries me.

      That's exactly what I thought!

      The guy doing all the talking seemed to be enjoying that WAY too much.

        Dude really? You guys are too old.

    This game makes me want to install a partition on my Mac.

      You know you want to dude =P

        It would be an impressive feat to state that he wants to without knowing he wants to.

    Man that's ruthless....
    I'm glad I picked this up during the steam sales.
    Can't wait to give it a go.

    I'm spewing that I did pick up ARMA2 from the steam sales :/

    Cant wait for a Battle Royale style mod for this mod :)

    Creepy/Cool/Weird, but agree that it is staged for sure.

    Still can't get Day-Z to work...

    can it be said that i am definitely NOT getting sick of dayZ videos. keep them coming!

    Fake and gay

    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    Been alive for 9 days now. Been all over the country, even spent yesterday cycling and hunting game around the North West. Occasionally I dip into and airfield to pick up medical supplies and ammo. With a hatchet, knife, matches and water bottles I'm totally self sufficient now. I stay out of the big southern cities because of all the grievers and low lifes.

    I'd track them down once I'd found a suitable weapon and kill them from a distance. Laughing as I took my revenge.

    I've been alive for weeks. The main survival rule is never go near the coast or major cities. That is where you will most certainly be sniped/attacked by gangs of bandits. I raid deer stands mostly and with an AKM and a constant supply of ammo, it's easy to stay alive. I learnt never to trust anyone you don't know IRL. Nothing better than teaming up with RL friends or long-distance mates. The poor fellow at the radio tower who died due to a ladder glitch I weep for you. Your 8 blood bags, Alice Pack, AKM and 8 mags have served me well.

    Here are the people who actually ran it

    I'm having a shit load of trouble getting into a server and the two times I have, I was murdered then gitch died. As much as I love the premise, this horrible start is really taking the fun out. Hoping at the very least these loading/creating character issues are sorted out soon.
