Kotaku - The folks behind DayZ say they want to rebuild the game's whole engine before releasing a stand-alone version.

The story is too old to be commented.

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.

my thing is just the name similarity..

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_Klank1838d 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.
