DayZ has just had its moment in the spotlight on the PC Gaming Show, with a bit of talk about what’s coming to the zombie survival game in the future.
I haven’t been following DayZ for quite some time, so forgive me if not all of this is new. Firstly: there will be a single-player mode, in case you really want to be the sole survivor of the zombie apocalypse. How this will impact that actual game itself – which relies a lot on the fear and uncertainty of what’s going to happen when you encounter another player – remains to be seen.
Secondly: Steam Workshop modding will appear, so you’ll be able to pick up and sort through mods for the game pretty easily.
Thirdly: server hosting tools will be coming, most likely when the game moves from alpha to beta. Host your own servers!
Finally: there are going to be three new vehicles added.
That’s your lot, lovelies. Nonetheless, that’s not a bad set of announcements if those are, indeed, all new.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
