DayZ Stand-Alone Release Rescheduled, ‘Closed Testing’ To Begin Soon


The big question on everyone’s mind is…. where is the standalone? DayZ creator Dean Hall wrote in a blog post this morning, saying he’s delaying the standalone in order to revamp the whole thing! Here’s a quote: “Put simply, DayZ Standalone isn’t here because we had the chance to go from making a game that was just the mod improved slightly, packaged simply, and sold – to actually redeveloping the engine and making the game the way we all dreamed it could be. This blew any initial plans we had dictated to pieces.” What’s the plan going forward? Dean writes: “The plan from here is straightforward. We will be releasing a closed test imminently, during which approximately 500-1000 people...

First DayZ standalone screenshots show interior buildings and houses

Posted 17 Oct 2012 in Community News, DayZ News, News

DayZ creator Dean Hall showed off some new screen shots of buildings and interior shots for the upcoming DayZ standalone game. He wrote on his official blog, “The village I used to take the screenshots in now has all its buildings enter-able, including the sheds. Most of the focus so far has been on the buildings that are situated outside of the center, but we’re now turning to doing interiors for the city buildings. This is complicated by our desire to dramatically increase performance, and given the scene complexity inside cities, we need to balance this with the desire to increase building scavenging opportunities inside the cities.” Check out some of the screen shots below. Can’t wait for the...
