You need Arma 2 and operation arrowhead to install.

All you need to do is download a program called "dayz commander". It will install the mod for you, as well as update your arma 2 to the proper patch. It also has a much better server browser that will cut out everything but dayz servers.

...install it, download dayz mod off of steam.

Make sure you also get dayz commandor

Its a pretty bad game imo, the zombie pathing and speed is terrible and just movement feels very clunky.

Only way you could have fun with the game is if you played with a friend or two.

And yea there is a decent number of players

I don't recommend using steam to install dayz. Using commander for that is a much better choice. It allows rollbacks with a few clicks, so when a new version comes out you can try it and go back to the old patch if it's buggy.

You don't need friends to have fun, but it helps.

And to answer your other questions, a ton of people play it. It's really just open world zombie deathmatch with a lot of bugs, not recommended. It was decent when teamwork was emphasized and good equipment was rare, but now it's just a fragfest.

Bottom of page, left side for download. There's also a bunch of maps and other mods for DayZ (mod for a mod.. lachen.gif), that commander can install and find servers for. I suggest trying the normal version first though.
