DayZ Updates to Include Improved Fire, Weapon Controls and More

on April 5, 2014 9:17 AM

Bohemia Interactive took to their blog to update us on their graphical and gameplay changes that are coming to DayZ. Starting next week, players will discover the power of fire, by being able to light flammable objects and “decid[ing] where and how to make fires.”

Interactive has been working on a new animation system and animation that allow players to power up throws of objects. Thanks to player feedbacks, the mouse controls have been updated to allow whichever weapon that being held to have various degrees and speeds of movements.

“Players with a pistol will be able to turn around and fire much faster than a player with a M4, or a chainsaw.” These changes will also “represent a great deal of work and the complete replacement of the old system, therefore some bugs and plenty of tweaking are expected.”

In exciting news, animators and artists have also been working on new motion capture versions of firing, reloading animations, new food items and character models are also being added.
