Watch us play DayZ - for five hours straight

Undead marathon kicks off at 1pm today.

DayZ's quite popular, isn't it? Even with a half-hearted plea from its developers not to jump in just yet, the standalone on Steam early access is racing towards a million sales, which isn't bad considering the actual beta's pretty much at least a year away.

It helps that, as with the original mod, Dean Hall's game manages to lay the foundation for incredible player-created stories. Gentlemen bandits, travelling dance troupes and suicide prevention units - all of them have emerged in the weeks since the release of the DayZ standalone.

Ian Higton's been enjoying it so much he's agreed to play through for five hours straight this afternoon, all for your viewing pleasure. Even better, he's going to be method gaming, surviving on cold tins of beans and tuna and sipping water from a bottle. I hope he's managed to purify it first.

The stream kicks off at 1pm GMT, and will run through to 6pm. Hope you can join us!
