DayZ Standalone: New 10 minute video shows off animation, crafting system, gestures

Tom Sykes


VG247 have ten minutes of new DayZ Standalone footage, as demonstrated by Bohemia Interactive's Matt Lightfoot (playing an in-game survivor wearing a particularly horrible striped orange T-shirt). 20 minutes of Standalone video emerged back in March, but it seems to have come quite a long way since then - this latest build boasts a redone inventory and crafting system, along with better animation and character models, and a more realistic range of weaponry.

Those ten-and-a-bit minutes focus mainly on the Standalone's newly simple inventory and crafting systems, but we're also given a glimpse of some of the new combat moves - for example, zombies can now knock you over to the ground. Enterable buildings - of which there will be a lot more - also look quite a bit more detailed than they did before.
