Project leader David “Rocket” Hall and production assistant Matt Lightfoot give a preview of the long-awaited standalone version of the super-popular ARMA 2 mod, DayZ.

The video released is part of a dev blog that the team is working on, and shows off the game’s revamped menu system, and also reveals that a new clothing and a reworked loot spawn system are included.

The new loot spawn system can generate loot in some interesting nooks and crannies, and requires players to really look and traverse around to gather the resources they need.

There are also new locations in the game, particularly an island that featured in ARMA 2, which was highly requested by the community.

The standalone version is still in early development stages and currently has no release date.
