Nearly 10 Minutes of Raw, Unedited, Pre-Alpha DayZ Standalone Footage

You’ve been warned. Seriously. Check out the warning in this video.

DayZ creator Dean “Rocket” Hall has whipped up nearly 10 minutes of pre-alpha DayZ Standalone gameplay that sums up the current state of the game in its development. You can see that all the parts are there, but with some missing polish. Regardless, it’s looking pretty good.

“Been a while so here is a raw, unedited, roughly 10 minute gameplay video taken after spawning into a multiplayer test today,” writes Hall. “This is pre-alpha footage, so it makes no effort to mask the variety of bugs. Our whole focus is on getting the alpha out, which means focusing on Multiplayer (server) performance. Enjoy and see you soon!”

The Standalone version of DayZ still awaits an official release date as the studio works through a few performance issues outlined by Hall last week.

    I really like how it looks, REALLY like. But I just hope that the motion blur and some other things will be able to be turned off or just lowered. Motion blur gives me the same effect as like sea sickness. I hate it, so I hope that is all. Anyway the game is really looking good. I hope it’s able to keep the same level of fun the mod had with it so it’s not just a play once and done type of game.

      90% of the graphical options will be user-editable without a doubt.

      They can be. Rocket said so on Reddit.

      did you ever play far cry 2, the motion blur was insane.

    What’s with the orgasm when he kills the zombies?? Should be called Day Zzzzzzzzooooohhhh yeah right there……..!

    Seems like a lot of the hype has died down for this game. All that aside, with the amount of time they delayed it, anything less than a stunning release will probably kill the buzz that is left. I hope he knows what he is doing.

      Anything less than a stunning release would’ve killed most of the buzz regardless of when he released it. It’s better to let it die down a bit when you know you’re not going to release something REALLY good right away, because most people expect it, and then hate HEAVILY on it when it’s not what they thought it would be, even though they clearly stated it wouldn’t be that.

        If released during the Day Z boom, a buggy release would have annoyed people, but they still would play. Buggy games are just the sad standard nowadays.

          As Battlefield fans, we know that is true.

        • Demi_God

          Then why not spend some more time to develop a game that does not requires much patches and updates for the issues, a good game should have patches and updates to enhances the game instead of fixing the game. If there are so much problems in the game after the release, then why did it take the companies to take that much time to develop it. The game is worth the wait if it is good, people will understands the massive delay once the game is actually finalized and good.

    • Katana67

      “Hype”, whatever you mean by it, is meaningless.

      • ThePoolshark

        I disagree. Day Z caused a (good) zombie game hype, or buzz. That even caused people to buy war z, and we all know how that game turned out.

        • Katana67

          Hype is defined by placing an overinflated or unbecoming emphasis on something. It’s inherently facetious.

          Likewise, when folks say “hype”, they say it as if developers are at fault for not “hyping” their game as well as for “over-hyping” their game. They say it as if it’s remotely comparable to whether or not the game will be good or not.

          In other words, you’re saying that “anything less than a stunning release will probably kill the buzz that is left”, meaning that “buzz” or “hype” will dictate whether or not the release is successful, vice just the product being decent.

          That and you mentioned “hype” as it was relative to DayZ specifically, not in relation to its effect on the genre.

    No word on a next gen version, yet?

    • DerpSlayer

      It doesn’t get more next gen than PC, kid.

      • oofy

        Said the kid to the adult.

    • Storm_Worm5364

      How the fuck would you want this game on console??? Every button on the keyboard as something binded to it. doesn’t have 100+ buttons/keys as the keyboard. And I don’t think the “next”-gen would handle the game so well, as well as kids sayin ghte game sucks and bla bla bla. Better just stay PC exclusive I think.

        “How the fuck would you want this game on console???”
        I don’t know. However the developers see fit.

        “Every button on the keyboard as something binded to it. doesn’t have 100+ buttons/keys as the keyboard.”
        Playstation 4 is keyboard and mouse compatible. Xbox One is likely getting it.

        “And I don’t think the “next”-gen would handle the game so well, as well as kids sayin ghte game sucks and bla bla bla.”
        Why not? Even if they scaled it down to medium or low settings, it would still work on next gen. And if the “kids” leave the game for adults…all the better for us.

        “Better just stay PC exclusive I think.”
