Bodies continue to swarm to Day Z like the unstoppable undead horde, pushing the number of players of the ArmA II mod to 503,000 players and counting.

In a Tweet earlier today, the Day Z development team announced that the ArmA II mod has reached the 500,000 player milestone:

“Congratulations everyone, with your support through tough times, mistakes, troubles, and technical problems, we now have over 500k users!”

The current average life expectancy of the 503,000 Day Z inhabitants is a mere 35 minutes, according to the mod’s website.

At Rezzed last week, VG247’s video maestro, Sam Clay, caught up with Day Z creator Dean “Rocket” Hall to discuss what’s next for the zombie mod; check out the video interview through here.
