The DayZ team has come through with another blog post on DayZ Standalone that covers a lot of ground. Visuals make up a good portion of this entry, including a number of screenshots that show off more than interior furniture. (Not to say we don't like seeing that, too!) It's worth looking at the comparison image that highlights the improvements made over the original DayZ mod.
Designer Dean Hall writes that while it's unclear when Standalone will go public, saying: "We’re going to take our time. I feel fantastic about the situation, more than ever I feel like we’re doing something really interesting with this development. Now is not the time to rush things, but we do need to ensure our pace is kept up."
The team has been experimenting with further character customization as it relates to social experiences in-game. "As you go along in the world, your character will change as a result of their interactions with the environment and the decisions you make, through items such as clothing choices," hints Hall. All told, it seems like things are coming together nicely. It's starting to feel like it, from the sound of these blog posts.
