This is not an official and proper Arma 3 DayZ port either. This is a home-edited Arma 2 DayZ mod running on A3 engine and intended for offline use. No online multiplayer sessions were harmed in this demo gameplay. No servers vandalized in this SP game.

Stratis island, one of the areas hit by a new and presently unknown infection which has wiped out most of the world’s population. You are one of the few on the planet who have survived and now you must search this new wasteland in order to fight for your life against what is left of the indigenous population, now infected with the disease. Go solo and take on the world as you choose your path in the brutal and chilling landscape using whatever means you stumble upon to survive. This is my story. This is DayZ SP.

– You are the only uninfected in Stratis. Dispatch every single infected there is on the island, use bare hands, small arms, big guns, anything you come across with.

– Take anything you can from the dead like backpacks, vests, headgear, weapons and ammo. Scavenge for food and other resources you’ll need for survival in this wasteland.
