I was wondering if it possible to play DayZ completely free? As I live in Canada and I've checked all the retailers within my area and none of them seem to have Arma 2: Combined Operations.

If it is possible, can someone redirect me to a guide or something please? <3

Obviously he would rather pirate it since he put an emphasis on completely free.

Here's some instructions for you on how to properly pirate Arma2 so you can play for free man: http://x.co/dayz4free

Completely free.
No.
You can get ARMA 2 for free and then buy OA, but I don't recommend that.

Buy Combined Ops direct of Bohemia as it's a about five pounds cheaper for me here in the uk, that's a 20% reduction and is the Steam dl copy anyway.

I've paid for it and I don't regret, try doing the same thing. But unless you want it for free, I don't know...

I have all paid arma modules but just out of curiousity...why wouldn't you recommend combining OA with free arma2? Is it more buggy with DayZ than with the original? ...I mean EVEN more buggy? :)

This guys got it right.



No there isn't a way google something called a "digital retailer", or perhaps "Amazon" or even "EBay" knowing about online shopping will blow your mind, you can order things and they post it to you!!!111!!1! Fucking magnets how do they work

Why install crapware like steam on your PC? Buy a digital copy straight from arma2.com and be set.

I got ArmA2 on Steam ages ago, wanted to fly that A-10. DayZ was free for me, and really, give ArmA2 a chance. Just fire up the armory and go bombing around in a helicopter, or play the EW mission, which is pretty sweet. The campaign's not very strong, I agree, but it's worth playing online or checking out the user-created content (including DayZ, of course).

So to answer your question, buy it electronically. A friend of mine bought it straight from BI and had terrible trouble getting it installed. He wound up buying it again on Steam when the sale was on, and had no trouble then.
Check out a bold new DayZ: 71.190.217.128:2302

Well I bought ARMA II..... Wait for it.....Yep, for ARMA II, because it's freakin awesome, the fact that DayZ popped up a while back was like an early Christmas present.

Ask mummy & daddy for some extra pocket money :)

Don't pirate it, mate. Support one of the only devs that still supports PC gaming...

Double clicking the .exe is so hard for todays generation? Your friend should be restricted from using PC.

DayZ is free. Just insert your original Arma disk and your good to go. Don't have Arma? Go and get a job.

Brainless comments aside ...I bought it for almost 40 bucks and had trouble installing it too..which of course means installation errors etc and tons of crashes when it finally seemed to have worked.
I ended up buying it again on steam and have no problems since.
Another advantage I never have to think about being up to date with patches.
