Bohemia Interactive’s Matt Lightfoot gives VG247 a world’s first look at the standalone version of Day Z, direct from E3 2013.

You’ll get a look at the new loot and gear systems; menu interface; character models; animations; environments and much more. Plus, learn the pro “crouch” zombie avoidance manoeuvre.

DayZ has not yet been dated; Bohemia Interactive chose to completely rebuild the game with an MMO-like client and sever architecture rather than knock out the quick and dirty port fans were clamouring for. From the looks of it, this was a good decision.
