The milestones just keep coming for ArmA 2 mod Day Z. The zombie survival experience has topped 1 million unique users, according to stats on the home page. Over 180,000 players have logged in over the last 24 hours, and of the 22.6 million characters which have ventured into the world, only 797,742 are alive, with a life expectancy of 49 minutes Hardcore. While we’re talking statistics, ArmA 2 is still ranked second on Steam’s charts, with only Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC ahead of it, in all likelihood due to the mod’s growing popularity.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim released in November last year and attracted millions of PC players with an average play time of 75 hours each. At time of writing it’s the third most popular game on Steam.
