Day Z Dev Diary Explains Many More Things


Day Z's standalone release still isn't upon us, unfortunately, and the conciliatory explanations in this video (below) suggest that it's still some way off, too. Personally I'm content to wait, however, because it looks like Rocket and friends are taking time to add the kinds of detail that will make that wait worthwhile: Rocket explains the new animation systems and so on that work with the injury system, while Ivan talks new Chernarus: there's a lot more going on in there.

It does look like the standalone will have quite a different flavour to the original game, and I'm intrigued to go back in there after over a year's break. Oh my God it's been that long.
