Dean 'Rocket' Hall has released some brand new screenshots of the upcoming standalone version of DayZ, once again showing off some of the interior decorating that the team has been working on for the past few months.
While it's great to see even a little bit of DayZ in action, we'd sure like to see some some combat, an updated UI system or, shoot, maybe a zombie or three. It is a zombie-survival game, after all, isn't it? The screenshots do look great, the environments are gorgeous both indoors and out. With a game that relies so heavily on a convincing and engaging game world, we can respect the desire for Rocket to show us exactly how he's improving that game world from the ArmA II mod that was DayZ's original form.
While the lack of zombies and action is a little disappointing, Rocket was more keen to speak about the lack of gore and rotting corpses that players have come to expect from a post-zombie-outbreak game world.
Overall, we believe the experience should have a style more akin to “The Road” rather than gore for gore’s sake. When you find gore in DayZ, it will mean something and have impact. In fact, it will be most likely due to tragedy or betrayal involving a human player. This way, we believe what happens in the world matters, instead of simply adding some crashed buses and blood everywhere.
At any rate, the full gallery of screenshots is below. Give them a once-over and let us know what you think in the comments.
