New DayZ Studio; Future Plans Detailed

Eurogamer has an update on what's up with DayZ, Bohemia Interactive Studios' survival horror game after listening to designer Dean Hall speak about the game at EGX Rezzed. This includes a new studio in Bratislava, Slovakia staffed by former employees of Cauldron games, as well as the following outline of plans for the game's next update:

The next update will come by the end of April, Hall promised, perhaps in the next two weeks if development continued smoothly. Included will be a prototype method for allowing loot to respawn within a server, as well as fireplaces for cooking (upgradable to ovens for baking bread) and a crossbow.

Loot will respawn in a particular quadrant of the world after it is empty for a certain amount of time, Hall said, so that players who join can still find items. Doors will also reset.

On the server side, the update will allow for a speedier delivery of future updates and improved messaging between the game's server and your PC. It'll also remove penalties for joining the same server.
