ARMA II standalone zombie mod DayZ won't release until sometime later this year. A few screenshots of the game's interiors did surface on the developer's website, however

"Please note these are work-in-progress shots, with only basic texture work and initial lighting passes. I picked a random town in the game and took screenshots of a few of the houses," said developer Dean Hall.

"The screenshots are taken on “Normal” graphic settings (medium texture resolution) and are unaltered and uncropped." Hall noted the interiors for the buildings were not considered when originally designed, creating quite the challenge for the game's artists.

"The village I used to take the screenshot in now has all its buildings enterable, including the sheds," Hall said. "Most focus has so far been on the buildings that are situated outside of the center, but focus now is 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."
