I saw a weird glitch getting disconnected from a DayZ Server.

DayZ is a multiplayer open world survival horror video game mod for the 2009 computer game ARMA II and its 2010 expansion pack, ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead. It has been widely praised in the game media for its innovative design elements, with Kotaku and Eurogamer describing it as possibly one of the best zombie games ever made, PCGamer saying it was one of the most important things to happen to PC Gaming in 2012, and IGN calling it one of the most popular PC Games in the world four months after release. The mod was responsible for putting the three year old Arma 2 into the top seller charts on Steam for over seven weeks, spending much of this time as the top selling game, and is responsible for over 300,000 unit sales within two months of its release. Designer Dean Hall stated in an interview with VG247 that a standalone game will be out in 2012. In its first four months the mod reached one million players on 6 August 2012.

DayZ places the player on a beach in the fictional post-Soviet state of Chernarus, where an unknown virus has turned the general population into zombies and devastated a large military force, likely called in to contain the situation. As a survivor with limited supplies, the player must scavage the world for supplies such as food, water, weapons and medicine, while killing or avoiding both zombies and other players - in an effort to survive the zombie apocalypse.

The game attempts to portray an authentic scenario, with the environment having many different effects on the player. A player may receive bone fractures from repeated damage to the legs, go into shock from unexpected ambushes, receive infections from both infected zombies or diseased players, or even spontaneously faint due to a low blood pressure. Thirst and hunger must be regularly dealt with by finding sustenance in either cities or in the wilderness, with body temperature playing another key part in the character's survival.
