Dev Update/EugenDear DayZ players,

There is a lot of commotion in the office as we get near our first 0.63 public stress test (which I will talk about more today and share details of why and how we are approaching this step, and what should be the outcome for both you, the players, and us – the developers). Besides the obvious focus to get things into public hands for testing, we are dealing with issues related to weapon collisions with environment and zombies. While also working on climbing and jumping to make traversing through the environment a much better experience.There is a lot to cover in the coming weeks, and we are looking at the 

If you are sad you couldn’t have tried it at GDC, we have another chance for you to get your hands on our DayZ Xbox demo! We are going to PAX East in Boston next week and we will be there ready for you from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th at the Xbox booth.

I know you always have questions about the console versions! I chose the three hottest ones:

  • Are you developing DayZ for Xbox One X only?

No, we’ll be releasing on all Xbox One consoles, and on PlayStation 4 as well!

  • How about the frame rates on Xbox One X?

It’s all work in progress, but we’re already peaking at 50-60 FPS in 1080p on Xbox One X, and we plan to support 4K@30 FPS. We’ll see where we end up though!

  • Will there be cross-platform between platforms?

That’s unlikely – while it’s perfectly viable from the technology perspective, we’d rather not mix PC and console players because it would cause a noticeable disbalance in gameplay.

Let’s check out the content you have done since the last Status Report. There is a lot of it, so I had to choose just some of the things you sent me.

I know we highlighted Gaming Roach Entertainment before, but he is so original and we love his videos very much! He made a DayZ parody of the TV show „Friends“ and it is stunning. You need to see it!

I saw a picture on Twitter that made me hungry. And I hope it will make you hungry too. This amazing package was sent by PetitPoney to his DayZ friends. Looks like human meat, doesn’t it? I asked the recipient EVILZ if he likes human meat so much, and he replied to me that it is just pork meat and he made a backpack from its skin. Okay, I am going to trust you for now.

 

Look at these cans, can you recognize them? They are just like the ones from the game! This picture was sent to us by Wallamys Uchiha, who made some for himself in real life. Do you want them too? You can make it yourselves, Wallamys shared the labels with us here[mega.nz].

 

I love your artworks guys. Please send more to me! This one is made by Dominik Figlhuber and it is in 80s style. Amazing work Dominic, I am looking forward to your next fanart!

Let’s check some events that servers prepared for you.

Do you know the server Mafia of Balota? Admins prepare events every week and they have some safe zones around the map, so don’t forget to read the rules before joining. The event for this week is in medieval style. If you want to participate, just join their Facebook group and learn more there.

The Village server prepared a screenshot contest for you. They are looking for the most beautiful post-apocalyptic screenshot taken on The Village server[barelyinfected.com]. The contest ends at the end of the month so hurry, you have just a few days to participate.

And your favorite riddle!

It was really hard last time. The house is between Black Moutain and Svergino and these guys are hardcore fans who really know the place:

  • Uncuepa
  • Jake
  • Goof3y
  • CanisDirus
  • CryDoXz
  • GaryWalnuts

And the new riddle is a really hard one, too, because it is from Adam again – he likes to challenge you!
