DayZ ported into the Arma 3 beta by modders

DayZ’s sandbox of undead survival has been ported into Bohemia Interactive’s beta for incoming shooter Arma 3.

Polygon reports that modding group Zoombies has transferred Dean Hall’s sandbox to Arma 3, and it makes use of the new game’s engine. However, any and all bugs present in DayZ have carried over as it’s almost a straight port. I say almost as the modders have added in a new inventory system.

Back in June DayZ standalone’s Windows release date was said to be decided by Dean Hall, but that he wasn’t ready to share it. Check out the details here.

    Kewl if porter decides to keep polishing it, but otherwise kinda pointless project.

    Petty I’m too busy cracking up this murder case involved a former colleague of mine otherwise would’ve given it a try. Downsides of a Shadowrunner’s life.

    Why is this news now? Zoombies ported Dayz months ago… I’ve seen a bunch of press about this for the last couple days, seems like everyone is late to the party!
