DayZ Standalone Future Update May Add Vehicles and Aircrafts

Creator of extremely popular Zombie-survival game DayZ, Dean “Rocket” Hall has outlined what’s in store in the coming future for the early access version of the game.

Dean Hall speaking on Reddit AMA, talked about the implementation of vehicles and bases:

Vehicles will be done based on the architecture we are doing for items/weapons now (i.e. attachments). So it’s in progress really, We are replacing the physics system for items (throwing, etc…) and this new middleware will be used for vehicles also.

However, there will be long time before the bases will be implemented, but players can expect access to barricades first. Answering a question about the planes, he said:

I think helicopters and small aircraft will be important. But they should be very complex to maintain.

For now, players should look forward to a major update that was released recently. Dean Hall wrote in the update’s official patch notes:

This build has very big back-end changes, which means that it may take some time for game servers to come up. Please keep an eye on the DayZ twitter for updates. Many of the changes not listed here are significant database cluster changes associated with our data center, and involve configuration changes to DayZ servers themselves. We have tried to minimize potential problems, but delays and outages are possible now more than ever. We will be working as fast as we can to get everything back online.
