 DAYZ ORIGINS 1.6 UPDATE
Today We are pleased to announce the release of DayZ Origins mod 1.6 which answers many of the long awaited community requests of adding buildings and mining elements to Dayz Origins.
The new features of origins 1.6 once more pushes the modding capabilities to bring new base building, mining and house construction mechanics. This update is expected to have a direct impact to the traditional zombie apocalypse experience, opening new opportunities un-explored before, new level of gameplay mechanics and indirectly paving the way to a new era of MMO / Survival games.
Days become weeks, weeks become months and now only the toughest remain. Those still living and breathing have learnt to adapt to the fresh hell they now call home. Across Taviana, survivors are gathering resources to not only survive but rebuild their lives. Building new homes hidden away from the overrun cities, humanity is finding a foothold in the most remote places.
But rebuilding civilisation was never going to be easy. While some survivors have learnt to work together there are still many who are as merciless as the zombies themselves. Time has allowed the three sides to make roots in their new world. Those who are holding onto what little humanity they have left are rebuilding communities, while bandits are still roaming the lands and doing the same in their own crude way. All that while the Zombies are becoming more numerous as more survivors fall prey to the infected, Salvation city guards are also raiding the main lands for more supplies, danger is now everywhere.,
Now that there is a less sense of security for those still alive, many have begun to reflect on the events of the last few months. It seems that finding the cure is not an easy task, and the rumours of Dr. Ivan “ Patient Zero” strike fear and curiosity into many. Many went exploring what little remains of the once ruling establishment to find clues for the location of his lab and maybe to find the cure?. Clearly this is no task for the faint hearted. Some questions are perhaps best left unanswered...
