The island of Chernarus continues to (re)take shape in the upcoming stand-alone version of Day Z, expected to release before the end of the year. The development blog has released nine new screenshots, showcasing redesigned interiors and some new locations designed specifically for the stand-alone version.
The shots include a sneak peek of an entirely new area, “created on the map by Ivan and Martin, the two developers at Bohemia who are currently being held in Greece. They conducted a revamping of the map to add some new areas, tidy up bugs, and rebalance the placement of ponds, fountains, and such.”
“Ivan was a big fan of DayZ, and the key architect behind the original Chernarus map – so we’re excited to get the map back out into everyone’s use. The usable area of the map is actually extended by their work.”
We’re warned to expect a bunch of new screenshots soon showcasing some of the Take On Helicopters content that the developers are bringing into the game, including military helicopters, fire engines and police cars.
