Apparently, zombies are hugely popular. Who knew?!
The hordes of gamers swarming all over the DayZ mod for Bohemia's authentic shooter ArmA II has proven once and for all that there really is nothing quite as satisfying as duffing up ravening mobs of the undead.
The zombie infested add-on has now passed the 500,000 users mark, to much delight from the devs.
"Congratulations everyone, with your support through tough times, mistakes, troubles, and technical problems, we now have over 500k users!" read the annoucement on the official DayZ Twitter account.
"We've got 420,000 now. We'll have 430,000 tomorrow," dreator Dean Hall had said at Rezzed last weekend.
"Currently we're running 22,000 concurrent at full peak, and 10,000 off peak, which is pretty huge numbers considering the original data structure and system was designed to handle 100 concurrents, and two servers."
