The lights are on
Developer Bohemia Interactive has released six new screens showing off the upcoming standalone release of the immensely popular hardcore zombie-survival mod, DayZ.
DayZ pits players against hunger, thirst, exhaustion, cold, zombies, and – worst of all – other players in a unique persistent structure where your character is saved in a central database but gameplay takes place on whichever individual server you decide to connect to. Death is permanent and around every corner, but the accomplishment of staying alive is all the sweeter for it.
DayZ is currently in a closed alpha-test state, and has no official release date. It is only confirmed for PC at this point, though creator Dean Hall seems open to the idea of a console version.
