The DayZ Standalone game was initially expected to release before the end of last year but a number of things happened that have prompted a slight delay of the game's development. The new plan is for a closed test of 500-1000 participants to help test the architecture in the near future.

 

According to creator Dean Hall, the dev team "had the chance to go from making a game that was just the mod improved slightly, packaged simply, and sold -- to actually redeveloping the engine and making the game the way the team dreamed it could be."

 

In his post, Hall touched on several changes to the inventory system, a few other UI changes, new art additions to the game, and progress on the revised maps. The UI is being streamlined and simplified to be "straightforward and functional just like in Minecraft." Map redesign and refinement is being slowed down by the continued imprisonment of the team's lead architect.

About DayZ

DayZ is a multiplayer open world survival horror mod designed by Dean Hall for the 2009 first-person shooter video game ARMA 2 and its 2010 expansion pack, ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead. The mod places the player in the fictional post-Soviet state of Chernarus, where an unknown virus has turned the population into zombies. As a survivor with limited supplies, the player must scavenge the world for supplies such as food, water, weapons and medicine, while killing or avoiding both zombies and other players - in an effort to survive the zombie apocalypse.
