Apparently Dean Hall is on Lirik's Twitch stream talking about DayZ standalone he even confirmed it on his Twitter too.

really hope the backlash from "War Z" doesn't trickle down to this title.

If anything it will send good vibes back UP to DayZ. WarZ was/is described as a god awful DayZ ripoff. People may want to see the original.

Really looking forward to this since I've never played the mod (or Arma 2).

Glad to hear they're gonna go all out on it, go on dean!

Can't wait, seemingly there is only like 500 to 1000 beta invites being sent out. I really hope to get one.

You probably don't actually want one. It'd have the quality of a pre-alpha build. The testing is most for game engine purposes.
The_Klank  +   621d ago
Oh, that's a shame, from my understanding I thought it was alot further along then that.

Still can't wait for the release though.

@DSQD-Detox
The time and resources it would take for such an engine to run on consoles is enourmous, it would make the game lower in quality, not worth it.

Oh boy! Glad to see Mr.Hall has backtracked on releasing this one so they can make a truly excellent, and more polished version. This version of DayZ will poke the piece of shit which is WarZ back to the very bottom of the sewer from whence it came. I've waited this long, I can wait a little longer.
