Watch Us Scavenge Desperately For Food In DayZ

The new standalone version of the infamous mod is now available on Steam's Early Access program, so I went to have a look at what changed. The answer: better graphics and even less supplies to be found.


I played some of the original mod, so I was excited to try the standalone version. It definitely feels more stable than the mod, and looks better too, even with this early build. Though that may be, it doesn't mean there are any more powdered milk packets or bullets for you to find. I can't wait to start hearing people's crazy stories.

It's easier to get into, BUT right now there's tons of stuff still missing that is in the modded version and has not been implemented in the stand-alone version yet. There's just 6 guns right now and supplies have become a little too scarce for my liking.

In my opinion, DO NOT get it now! Wait a few months for them to implement the core stuff that makes the mod great and play it the way it's meant to be played.

This is super early Alpha after all and if you do buy it, you were warned that this game isn't even remotely close to being finished. Everything's still WIP.
