DayZ Unleashed, a new mod by HNGamers introduces us to a new map – Napf by Momo. Napf is based around a real mountain in Switzerland and features two large cities, 40 smaller towns, an airport and a military base. The mod itself includes some interesting features like wildly improved zombies – there’s a completely new zombie AI system, new zombie movements, new zombie agro system and new sounds – if the crappy zombies in the current DayZ mod are something which annoys you, it might be a good idea to give Unleashed a try when it’s fully released to the public. It’s currently ~85% complete with a closed beta test coming up in the next few days.
There are some more really interesting features that we are yet to see in action like customizable bases, class selection and a hero/bandit levelling system. Some of the features we have seen in other Mods, like DayZ Origins and DayZ Epoch but it will be interesting to see how the team at DayZ Unleashed have pulled it off. Here’s a condensed list of some of the better features of Unleashed.
