So why does this DayZ developer not want to put on his pants?
Welcome to fifteen minutes of DayZ video development blog, "the first of its kind, actually," as Dean 'Rocket' Hall is quick to remind us. Gaze upon the power of pants, and see how they can destroy Matt Lightfoot's soul! Well, not quite; but he does seem remarkably reluctant to put them on.
It's mainly world building stuff, so if you have a yen to know what loot spawning will be like, or whether there will be new environments to splash around in, this is the update you've been waiting for. One new idea, the swamp section, came courtesy of Ivan Buchta. "He wrote to us when he was in prison in Greece," said Lightfoot, "he thought that a swamp would be a great place to mix it up a bit and add a different type of play style." Another came courtesy of 4chan, proof positive that the development team listens to the fans.
"We're getting plenty of bugs coming in from our closed internal testing," says the development team in a blog post, "and we haven't moved to our closed external testing just yet. There is still no timeframe for when this will happen, but we're committed to continuing with these development updates and blog posts."
So, next week Monday then? You can bring the popcorn.
