The ported mod makes use of the Arma 3 engine; however, as with any straight port a number of existing bugs from the original version of the game is still prominent, including glitches to zombie animation. The modders have also introduced a new inventory system to the game.
The official DayZ standalone title is still on the horizon. In January, developer Dean Hall confirmed the game's release would be rescheduled from its initial launch window set for the end of 2012. The game has no official launch date as of yet.
