" alpha launched on the Steam store today
for $29.99. The release is part of Steam's
early access program with a caveat posted that players should not purchase it unless they're OK with "serious issues and possible interruptions of game functioning."
The launch was accompanied by a trailer which has since been pulled
from the Steam store due to its graphic nature. Lead developer Dean Hall bemoaned the move
on Twitter: "At the last minute, despite being told of the contents of my trailer for DayZ
, Steam pulled my trailer due to censorship." The video is still on YouTube
if you're curious, although be aware that it is NSFW and has a scene of a suicide.
