Here's what DayZ players can expect in 2016

The DayZ team is working hard on version 1.0 and plans to leave Early Access in 2016. To that end, Bohemia Interactive has sent over a list of content players can expect next year.

Here's what lies ahead:

  • Steam Workshop support (Modding)
  • Barricading
  • Aerial Vehicles
  • New Renderer
  • New robust Animation System
  • Enhanced Audio System support
  • Predators
  • Finalized Chernarus +
  • Animal Companions
  • New more modern UI & Inventory
  • Public Server Binaries & Servlet/Database Release
  • New User Actions & Fluid movement within the game world
  • And that’s only the beginning

"We more than anyone understand the frustrations and difficulties that come with participating in the public development of a game, Siad the developer. "As the team marches along with the new Enfusion engine development, we with our community have weathered broken or missing features, near game-breaking bugs, general growing pains, cheating issues and more.

"We’ve also experienced exciting landmarks and vital improvements alongside them. We count ourselves lucky to have one of the most passionate, dedicated gaming communities sticking by us through the good and bad, aiding the team in making massive gains and advancements we might never have been able to accomplish without Early Access and those who have participated in it."

The addition of predators was announced last week with a video detailing the new dangers. If you missed it, you can have a look through the link.
