Now I know everyone here has either heard or played DayZ the mod for A2 CO. The more I play it, and the more I think about it, I think it deserves to be it's own game.
Now, when I say game, I don't mean the mod as it is now, I envisage a massive Multiplayer Role playing game. I'm not too sure if RV4 can handle server loads of over 200+, but maybe even a full on FPS MMORPG?
As a fan of the Walking Dead & Resident Evil, I believe there is such a massive multi-million dollar market for a game like this that hasn't been tapped into yet, and I think BIS, or a license for the engine to the DayZ team could fill that hole. I mean the new Walking Dead game came out, and it's just like Broken Sword type of thing, just walk around, click on objects, then move through. It's not the big open world, unlimited possibilities type of game I want.
For it to work, it has to be done right. Not half-assed. There needs to be a massive open world, like chern with the mod atm, but preferably bigger. Obviously invested with vast numbers of zombies, all different shapes and sizes and various sounds and movements. Then comes the food, drink and first aid stuff. All of this on a grand scale spread across a massive map with loads of other players who can either help each other survive or kill you and steal your stuff, would be epic.
I think BIS should jump at this opportunity, especially as Rocket actually is a BIS employee... But if they don't want to do it, I think they should atleast license the engine to Rocket and the DayZ team and make it happen.
What are your thoughts? I know it would require a hell of alot of work, but I feel it'd be amazing.
