It is an MMO game, with rival players, NPCs, maps, and servers.
It is somewhat unique in the fact that players only get one life; dying respawns the player at a random location with no weapons or equipment.
This makes in-game death very undesirable and highly consequential with a loss of all progress. The game features a unique system for health (blood points) which can be restored by eating certain foods or receiving blood transfusions. Weapons and ammo are limited, as are vehicle spawns. Players must scavenge for equipment (i.e. navigation, medical, and storage items), that will help them survive as they search food and water. Players can gain "humanity" by doing good deeds (example: giving blood transfusions), and lose "humanity" by doing "evil" deeds (killing unarmed players). Players with a lack of "humanity" points take on the appearance of bandits, where as players with a good deal of "humanity" points take on the appearance of a "hero". The website for the Day Z mod claims the average life expectancy is one hour, nine minutes.
"I dono dude...that game is hard! I got jumped by a bandit and a zombie and lost my gear!"

"Dude have you seen Frankie's latest video? He headshots a bandit at 900 meters!"
"Holy crap! In Day Z?"
"You know it!"
