DayZ creator Dean Hall has revealed a batch of new details for the standalone version of the popular ArmA II mod.
Firstly, he ruled out day one DayZ modding by stating, "Not initially." Hall also confirmed that the Chernarus map will be completely rebuilt for the standalone release, while the game's environment will see the inclusion of new areas and more buildings that players will be able to enter.
By opening metallic grates situated on the ground, underground bases can be entered, as well as the ability for players to dig their own underground safe house; they can then be secured with concrete, which allows you to grow crops for sustenance. That said, bases that haven't been built well can eventually collapse and kill whoever's inside.
As for a possible console version of the title, DayZ's individual release will have to perform well commercially on the PC first before a potential PS3 and Xbox 360 launch can come into fruition.
