Dean Hall, the developer of the DayZ mod for ArmA 2, says that he has not yet figures out the monetization process that he will use for the upcoming standalone version of the game.He states on his personal blog that, “There are issues with the DLC model we would want to avoid. We’re hoping we will be so successful in sales, that we can just release as a free content update.”
Apparently gamers will be able to get access to new items and weapons every week after the game is launched.
Hall also confirms that each players will only be able to have one living character in DayZ at launch and that the game will have a basic radio system.
DayZ Standalone will be launched later during 2013, after it was delayed from December 2012.
