DayZ developers Dean "Rocket" Hall and Matt Lightfoot have unveiled new footage for their upcoming title DayZ Standalone, revealing various new areas on the popular Chernarus map along with a look at the new UI and clothing. Alongside the release of the developer video is a new update to their Tumblr page, detailing where the team is currently at in regards to development and overall status.
Development is continuing to progress in extremely positive ways for us. The architectural decisions we have taken are providing continued dividends with the development of our disease mechanics, and in the ability to create notes in the world.
Inventory is fully synchronizing with the central database, including inventory inside clothing items. Essentially your clothing is like many little backpacks.
We’re getting plenty of bugs coming in from our closed internal testing, and we haven’t moved to our closed external testing just yet. There is still no timeframe for when this will happen, but we’re committed to continuing with these development updates and blog posts.
While a few of the more under-development systems like the new inventory are overed out with hilarious images photoshopped, the new gameplay video gives a great look at just how far the mod-to-standalone project is going. You can check out the full 15 minute video below, or head over to the Tumblr page for a more detailed look at what is next including hints at joining the development process very soon.
