DayZ standalone: first footage released in new devblog

By Brenna Hillier, Tuesday, 5 February 2013 05:01 GMT

DayZ’s standalone release is really happening, you guys, as this video of it in action confirms.

This is the first video developer diary Bohemia Interactive has released, and as project lead Dean “Rocket” Hall and production assistant Matt Lightfoot stress, it’s very much a work in progress.

Nevertheless, it’s already looking pretty good, and in the video you’ll get to see new maps; the swamp biome; an expanded military base; a new island; the clothing system; and the new loot spawn system.

DayZ’s standalone’s PC release has not been dated, but a closed beta is on the way.

Thanks, Dan.

DayZ Standalone

    The standalone version of DayZ sold 3 million units, Bohemia Interactive has announced.

  • No, DayZ is not a PlayStation 4 exclusive

    Back in August, when Deal Hall, creative director of DayZ, took the Sony stage at gamescom 2014 to announce that DayZ is coming to PS4, many thought that could mean it would only come to the Sony console. Today, we learn that Hall is in fact considering bringing the sandbox shooter to more platforms.
