While console players are still waiting for DayZ to finally make its way to their gaming systems it is still having some success on the PC. Today the developers have given an end of year report and looked to 2016.

It looks like 2016 will finally be the year it will leave Early Access, and reach version 1.0. This will bring new features to the fame. With one of them being Steam Workshop support so that players can generate their own content for the game as well as mods. Planned features for the game include:

  • Steam Workshop support (Modding)
  • Barricading
  • Aerial Vehicles
  • New Renderer
  • New robust Animation System
  • Enhanced Audio System support
  • Predators
  • Finalized Chernarus +
  • Animal Companions
  • New more modern UI & Inventory
  • Public Server Binaries & Servlet/Database Release
  • New User Actions & Fluid movement within the game world

On the experience that gamers have had with DayZ, the developers also had this to say:

“We more than anyone understand the frustrations and difficulties that come with participating in the public development of a game. As the team marches along with the new Enfusion engine development, we with our community have weathered broken or missing features, near game-breaking bugs, general growing pains, cheating issues and more. We’ve also experienced exciting landmarks and vital improvements alongside them.

We count ourselves lucky to have one of the most passionate, dedicated gaming communities sticking by us through the good and bad, aiding the team in making massive gains and advancements we might never have been able to accomplish without Early Access and those who have participated in it. “

It will be interesting to see what comes for DayZ in 2016, especially with the console release. Hopefully its official release can bring some players back to the survival game, which is something it has struggled with.
