Dean Hall promises "something special" for EGX Rezzed

Bohemia Interactive developer to present DayZ session at event

Dean Hall from Bohemia Interactive will present a DayZ developer session at this year's EGX Rezzed event in Birmingham.

"I think I'll put something really special on for the DayZ session," said Hall, who will also take part in a live developer interview at the show. He's just the first of a line up of big name developers and publishers support the PC gaming event this year, with more names to be announced in the coming months.

The DayZ developer session will take place in the EGX Rezzed session auditorium on Friday March 28 at 1pm BST. The live developer interview will take place on the same stage on March 29 at 5pm. Both sessions will be streamed live on

Hall made his name with the DayZ mod, which has just been released on Steam in a standalone form.

EGX Rezzed takes place at the NEC from Saturday March 28 and, as well as the usual PC and independent games, this year will feature console titles. There'll also be a Minecraft tournament stage, board games and much much more.

Tickets for EGX Rezzed 2014 are on sale now at the official site.

The surprise isn't a version of DayZ which is actually a functional game, is it?

And before all the DayZ fans start crying, I want to point out that Arma II (not III, II - but also III) is still a glitchy nightmare. With the high end PC I have now it is still barely running - and this is several years after the official release!

Yep, it seems that for every mind-blowing aspect of arma and dayz - whether graphically or gameplay related - there's something painfully wrong to balance it out!
I resisted buying the standalone because apparently some of the most vital things have still not been fixed from the mod, such as the inaccurate melee system. Fair enough the arma engine wasn't built for melee but that doesn't make it any less frustrating!
After saying that, it is one of the few mods/games that has a genuinely all-engrossing, terrifying framework from which to experience substantial, dynamic adventures that you'll never forget! Hiding in a shed for 3 hours because you were too scared to brave the noob hunters outside? We've all been there!
