DayZ Standalone – First Gameplay Footage Released

We’ve heard the news and we’ve seen the screens, but today, we finally get to see the game in action.

Featuring an upgraded engine, this video will showcase many of the newly added components along with the graphical improvements of the standalone version of the popular Arma 2 zombie mod, DayZ.

Let creator Dean “Rocket” and production assistant Matt Lightfoot take you through the first real gameplay footage of DayZ Standalone.

Finally! What do you guys think?

  • So Dead Island x10 in the boring?

    • ZeCowMan

      To each their own. For some it’s boring, but for others it’s a lot of fun. Especially with a group of friends. For myself, the waiting aspect adds a lot more tension. There are those moments when you’re running down an ally and you see a zombleh at the end of it and, especially in the DayZ+ and Origins mods where they do a lot more damage, there’s a real sense of fear. DayZ is definitely more of an emotional investment.

      Also, DayZ is nothing like Dead Island. Dead Island is rather mindless and DayZ requires a lot of patience and strategy. I do enjoy both quite a bit, though, but for completely different reasons.

      Needless to say.. I am extremely excited about the standalone. This video gets rid of some of the concerns that I had.

      This analogy could be made for any game.. If you do not like it, then why come here and comment? Why waste your time?

      If you played Dead Island, and DayZ both then you know its not comparable. One is a simulation of sorts, and the other is an arcade game.

      Some people need to be guided through their entertainment, with their hands held.. others like taking the reigns.That is the difference.

      • So what simulation has anyone had? Your comment shows your ignorance.

        • lrishjake

          Go away troll.. reading comprehension fail, at best, on your part

  • lrishjake

    F___. This game is so much fun its crazy.. and its getting better?! Cant wait, now I just need to convince my friends to invest in a PC like me..

    Dear PC Gamers, PLEASE buy the crap out of this game so they will release it for Xbox 720 and PS4! I want to see this game do well so they will do a console port like they said they would. Before you say “But a PC then”, I like Gaming on consoles these dayz (lol) for the Convenience and couch gaming on a big screen lol.

    • I’m sure with the Next Gen Consoles they will release it.. At least I hope so =)

    • You could always connect your PC to your PC and use a controller.

    • MikePembo951

      Buy a PC and use Steam’s “Big Picture” mode then 😉
      Theres no excuse! ;D

    • Scav

      Dear console player,please buy a pc so we can play this game together and not split the community.

  • Jack_yolo
