Cherno Plus: Hall On Day Z’s Standalone Future

Earlier this week I sat down with Day Z creator Dean Hall to talk about the new standalone game. Read on for information on why the mod version of the game will now "open up", how dogs work, how original Op Flash developers came back to work on the new title, how "underground construction" might work, and for an explanation of why there won't be…

DayZ You’ll Remember All Your Life

The most well-attended session at Rezzed was Dean 'Rocket' Hall chatting about the game/mod of the moment, DayZ. Zeitgeisty! Relaxed and charming, he goes into the making of the open-world zombie survival mod for Arma II before fielding a ton of audience questions on everything from the nature of fun to 'Day Z hipsters' and in-game kidnappings. It's a shame you missed it. If you're…

Interview: Bohemia Talk Arma 3, Modding, Day Z

Arma III is still quite some way off, with a release date of "2013", but Bohemia are starting to reveal more and more of the latest iteration in their ongoing soldier sim project, giving us some tantalising glimpses of an overhauled engine and a reworked game. Creative directors Ivan Buchta and Jay Crowe took some time out from working on their near-future weaponry simulations to…

Surviving In Day Z: Part Two

A large part of the internet is telling Day Z stories. People feel compelled to communicate what they've experienced in there. There's a good reason for that. This unfinished modification is more interesting than 90% of games that will land in the same year. It is a game that - for many people - represents this kind of experience we were promised. An open-world, persistent,…

Arma 2: The Player News Report

I don't know why I am surprised to see Arma 2 players effectively role-playing in their game, but it was still a bit strange to watch this video (below). It's a bunch of footage shot by a "cameraman" as he and a reporter accompany the chaps from UKTF clan in their patrols on the game. They get ambushed, obviously, and plenty of dodgy-voice acting and…

Take On Helicopters Taster For Op Arrowers

Op Archers? Owners of Operation Arrowhead, anyway. If you are one of those people - as you should be if you like soldier simming - then you are entitled to a preview version of Take On Helicopters, the forthcoming commercial chopper game from Bohemia Interactive. It looks like this is a sort of add-on for Operation Arrowhead which demonstrates the new flight model and pilot…

Game Club: Operation Arrowhead 6th/7th

One such is the first of our community-led evenings, which will take place on the Unofficial RPS Arma 2 server this coming weekend. To play on there you will need Operation Arrowhead patched up to 1.54, or whatever the…

One More Arma II: OA Session?

After the mild success of our previous adventures in Arma II: Operation Arrowhead, we've decided to do one more event on the borrowed RPS server before it is placed on a flaming barge and pushed out to sea. The event will take place this Saturday, 11th August September, from 8pm BST. I will post a new password in this thread half an hour before we…

Thanks, Jest!We picked one of the community-made missions for the game, of which there are many different kinds. This sprawling, multi-objective desert operation would test…

JestServers have sorted out a lovely, glitzy server and…

Arma 2 Is A Strategic Game, You know

And Bohemia Interactive have released a video which shows off some of the stuff that means Arma 2 - and its Operation Arrowhead expansion which arrived on the 28th, last month (sorry, I missed that entirely) - definitely isn't just a first-person shooter. This High Command tutorial (which is below, and spotted via Mr Blue) shows off all the means by which the game allows…
