DayZ will not be finished until 2016, will increase in price

DayZ Bohemia interactive

Bohemia Interactive has put out a notice to Early Access purchasers that DayZ will not be completed until 2016. The zombie survival game has been in Early Access for a year now, and still has quite a way to go before it’s a fully functioning product. 

Bohemia also announced that the game will see incremental price hikes over the next year as the game draws closer to completion. 

The projected time of completion for DayZ is now the first half of 2016, and Bohemia has outlined their plan for what development will take place between now and then. Each quarter will introduce some significant new features for the game. Q1 of 2015 will see vehicles, diseases, stealth mechanics, and improved AI for zombies installed into the game. The following quarter will introduce vehicle repairs and modifications, a new user interface design, dynamic events in the world, and player statistics. 

Q3 2015 will introduce the oft-requested ability to construct traps and barricades, as well as air vehicles, wildlife predators and companions, and Steam Community integration. 

As well as the quarterly updates, new weapons, objects, and craftable items are due to be added on a monthly basis 

As for that price hike, after the Steam Fall Sale the game will be priced at $35/£23. After the game hits beta the price will jump to $44/£28, and the final release will be $50/£32. 

Thanks, Game Informer

Feels more like a cash grab than a game. As is the case with most early access games

I played DayZ standalone yesterday, the first time I have bothered for a good six months. Its still a shabby,broken, poorly executed mess and the devs are more interested in adding toys than fixing core game mechanics. It is not worth the current cover price, let alone a higher one. As a fan of the Mod I'm bitterly disappointed.

Thankfully H1Z1 should be released before Bohemia have a chance of throwing this rubbish back on the gaming public in what they would laughably call a final release.

If you want my truthful opinion, forget this title even exists and go play something that Bohemia Interactive have no involvement in.

If you need a Zombie Apoc game then Unturned is a much better game, even with its Blocky graphics.

I'm not surprised. The game has been crawling towards completetion for a long time, honestly, I still play the mods (Which are WAY better) and I probably will keep playing them, even long after this game is released. All hope for the standalone completely died the second he announced it for PS4.

It's kinda bad that the mod(s) is(/are) still better than the standalone after a full year :x also, increasing the price the day it goes on sale (and effectively cancelling the 15% off sale) is a bit of a bastard thing to do if you ask me.

I bought this 11 months ago since a buddy wanted to try it out with me.

.

I saw zombies running through walls, controls felt even more awkward than ArmA (coming from a huge OFP/ArmA fan here) somehow... couldn't really put my finger on it. Uninstalled it and decided to wait, they said not to expect any kind of polish, so, fair enough.

.

Installed it again last month, people said zombies/wall issue was fixed. I made a zombie chase me down a road, ran into a wooden hut and shut the door. He looks at me through the window, all annoyed. "Haha, fu*k you zombie!" i thought.

.

Then he runs through the wall/floor with his head sticking up through the floorboards, and teleports up so he's stood infront of me. "You are dead".

.

Uninstalled. Maybe i'll try again in another 11 months...

2016, 20 days away from 2017. How are you guys still feeling about this game? Email me your reply (too) @ [email protected]

Personally, I think the game is going to be a failure by most people's standards, especially players of the game over it's dev time.

I was running this game when it was first released as standalone with a q8400 and an gtx 560ti and it runs the exact same on my i5-3470 and gtx 960. No matter the settings I never get a stable FPS. some times it can seem stable but the CONSTANT dips show its not... ecspecially on the lowest possible settings with commands to lower quality further... to me the game is dead. Last played it today, next time playing it, probably never.
