Day Z Summary
DayZ creator Dean Hall has unveiled his next project over at Improbable and it's called ION. It's another game based on huge player numbers, except this time it's going MMO in space to colonise the furthest reaches.
We'll build and live in space bases of our own design, and likely plot many a raid and murder-most-foul. ION will support "fully simulated environments" like power grids, air pressure and heat.
Zombie. Survival. These two words had become quite synonymous with Arma II mod DayZ, but today that once thriving horde of players has begun to dwindle since its Early Access launch. What's gone wrong?
Slow development and lack of overall engaging content is being blamed for the player base shrinking, with today less than 9,000 concurrent players compared to around 30,000 just three months back.
Now's a good time to check in onlatest military simulator Arma 3 if it's been on your 'to do' list but you haven't gotten round to it. It's enjoying a free weekend on , with it discounted by 50%.
In fact there's a host of savings on Bohemia's titles from the standalone DayZ to the Red Planet visiting Take On Mars. Sorry but only Arma 3 is free to try out this weekend. Who can resist the allure of the 'Play Game' button?
Chris Torchia from DayZ's development team over athas given us a glimpse of the "zombie template" system being worked on, which will dramatically increase the wardrobe of the shuffling undead.
Not only will they dress differently, but they come in different body shapes too. All this will have minimal impact on DayZ's performance should anyone come across a large gathering.
Open world zombie survival sim Day Z has racked up an impressive 3 million sales since it launched onin December 2013.
The standalone version of the popular Arma 2 mod is expected to release in full in early 2016, and the developers have alreadya list of features on the way this year.
