DayZ Plans: Dogs Soon; Standalone Version Eventually?

Eurogamer examines the popularity of the DayZ modification, saying that as of yesterday the Zombie mod boasted 420,000 players, which helps explain why Arma II: Combined Operations is once again #1 on this weeks list of bestselling games on Steam, as the mod has made the game a fixture on that list for nine consecutive weeks. They speak with the project's author, Dean Hall, who works as a multiplayer designer at Arma developer Bohemia Interactive, and he tells them they may make a standalone version of DayZ, perhaps as a free-to-play game. In the more immediate future, he has been working on overcoming the issues preventing the implementation of dogs in the mod.

Are you sure you bought the game? Laugh2

Bought it and the expansion on Steam, check my profile. It's is an amazing concept that needs almost every aspect fixed. Until it moves farther along the development path, the hype is totally unfounded. Just look at the brilliant move to eliminate spawn camping by removing the pistol from the spawn kit....

It reminds me of CounterStrike or Desert Combat when I played them in early beta. Lots of issues, but WOW! what promise. The difference there is that I already owned Halflife and BF1942...which were well worth the barrier to entry.

Then you obviously have huge problems with games that deviate a litle from the generic shooter.

I mean I understand that, in Tribes for example, I was about to give up because I tried to play it like a normal shooter, and of course that didnt work. I blamed the game for that. But after a little conflict in my mind, I kept playing and soon I realized its the best game since Doom and the controls are not the worst, but the best for a game like that.

You just need to realize what kind of a game ArmA 2 and all of its predecessors is. After 11 years it wont change for you. Either deal with it or go back to CoD.

Waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
