GC 2012: DayZ Construction Tools and Console Release
Dean Hall, project lead on zom-sim (zombie simulator) DayZ has revealed some information regarding the game's highly anticipated stand-alone release. Hall says the game will feature a construction tool that will allow players to create their own bases. He goes on to say that they will probably be underground bases that will be accessed via portals and that his vision for this tool is that players will have to dig out the space, pour the concrete and, if s**t really hit's the fan, the structures may even collapse!
The stand-alone will also feature a revamped Chernarus that features an increased number of buildings that can be entered and explored as well as "entirely new areas".
In other DayZ Gamescom news, regarding a possible console release, Mr Hall says:
"You're not going to put it on the consoles if you're only going to sell 100,000 units or something like that," he said. "DayZ will be driven by its PC development and it will innovative on that. And, once we're at a point, we'll take it and do a Mac version, 360 and PS3."
When asked about any discussions had with console developers his reply was:
"We're meeting with them here."
Pretty exciting stuff for PC and console gamers alike!
