DayZ Devblog Reveals Latest Feature Set


One of the most interesting things from the DayZ presentation at Gamescom (which I still have to find time to write up) was Rocket explaining why they're working on the kind of feature set we're seeing in these videos of the standalone, and what that means for the game. Perhaps the most significant is item degradation and damage, because it's one of the things that will push DayZ back into the direction of the taut survivalism that defined its early months. Rocket doesn't want us to all shoot each other, because getting things that we've all gathered will be much more important. Shoot someone and you probably wreck his kit. Moreover, bullets are now individual items, and you will find less of them, so spending them on a noob for his beans will be a bad idea indeed. Watch the latest thoughts on this sort of thing below.
