DayZ to receive major mouse optimization and heaps of content

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen DayZ content rolling out to stable servers.

Those following Dean “Rocket” Hall’s reddit and twitter activities during the last few months foresaw what is now confirmed – Dean Hall plans to leave Bohemia Interactive behind him, and DayZ with it. This comes as a shocker for many others though, and many people will no doubt to start questioning the future of DayZ, which as successful as it may be, is still in an early alpha stage and […]

DayZ will give you a heart attack

DayZ will give you a heart attack

And that is quite in the literal sense, too. Well, not in real life (although, I have been close to that a few times in my DayZ playing career), but in the game. With the expansion of the medical system, the next updates will keep adding complexity to the health system within DayZ. The experimental servers are already juggling with various new conditions, from broken limbs, to the possibility of […]

5 major problems in DayZ

DayZ has been out for almost two months now, and the game keeps selling like there’s no tomorrow. Almost 1.4 million survivors have joined Chernarus, and while still in alpha, there seems to be no limit to the potential of Rocket’s popular running simulator. Patches keep rolling out, and when they’re not breaking the game (like last week’s patch that pretty much rendered the game unplayable due to huge FPS […]

DayZ’s combat logging is getting fixed, while game gets new weapons, emotes and more

DayZ’s charm comes from player interaction. Granted, there aren’t many zombies yet, and there’s not a lot to do in the game so far. Even so, DayZ manages to be extremely fun and addictive, mostly because of some hilarious and memorable player encounters. If there’s one undeniable quality of DayZ, that’s the fact that every single encounter with other players is memorable and gets stuck in your head. I still […]

DayZ’s combat logging soon to be a thing of the past

DayZ’s new major patch is currently being tested on experimental servers, and people are providing more than positive feedback already. According to Dean “Rocket” Hall, the lead developer behind DayZ, it “took 1 minute and 32 seconds for someone to put a burlap sack on their head…”. I’m surprised it took that long, to be honest! If you want to test the current experimental build, you can try to do […]
