Want to see what DayZ will look like some time in the near future?

Here’s a video comparison of DayZ’s original RV Direct X 9 Rendering and the upcoming Enfusion Direct X 11 renderer.

Listen to the voice of lead designer Brian Hicks talk you through changes and tell me he’s not pumped about the differences. Just look at that rain!

What you see is all work in progress, with Hicks warning there will be “plenty” of bugs and issues when the Direct X 11 renderer hits the experimental servers.

There’s no set date for the Direct X 11 update to arrive but it should be soon.
