It is an old ARMA2 mod that Bohemia decided to do a standalone version of. It's a survival sim that has a crazy intricate crafting engine in it. Kill animals, cook meat, tan the hide and craft your own clothing, farming, fishing. There are zombies but they are done pretty well. It has been in development for 4 years at least. They just released the server files to host a couple of weeks ago after releasing an XBOX one version. That makes me think they are wrapping it up. I actually started playing exile waiting for them to finish DayZ.

It's been almost 5 years now and development has still been insufficient. I bought the game when it was first released in late 2013 and played it quite a bit. It's been a while since I've played, so I have not played since the new management has taken over and *(improvements) have been made. Now I use that word lightly because reading the most recent reviews reveals that while a new team has been working on the game, not much has been done to fix a lot of the same issues that have been around since it's inception - all the bugs, glitches, massive problem with hackers, ect..
So for that reason, is why I have not played it in a very long time nor had the urge to even download the game again.
