DayZ creator Dean Hall has revealed that the game is currently in closed Alpha testing and also offered up a few details about its pricing strategy.

“So what we’re doing at the moment is, we gave free keys as a gift to the forum moderators, the Reddit moderators, people who helped out with DayZ development, and stuff like that,” he told Gamasutra. “I guess there’s about 30-100 people involved with that.”

Hall added that the game will not be officially released in Alpha mode until at least June. He also mentioned how the game’s pricing strategy will work once the game goes live. “People pay X amount of dollars and they get early, cheap access to it, and then once it’s beta, price goes up, maybe, say, $10, and once it goes retail, the price goes up $10.”
