DayZ isn't really a conventionally beautiful game, but it does have an austere quality that I find appealing. That quality is on full display in the latest shots from Duncan Harris at Dead End Thrills, who has been running the game in offline mode to capture the cleanest images.

Call me crazy, but I'd love for Harris to go online and "embed" with a group of bandits or survivors as a sort of digital war photographer, capturing their harrowing deeds while (too much to hope?) being left alone by combatants on either side. New games journalism, indeed.

    brilliant idea. that sort of in-game 'journalism' would be awesome in a game like dayz due to the nature of player interaction.

      The 'Press' vest could have a point! (apart from being unique and therefore desired)

        If only players didn't target you straight up, even if you walk around with zero weapons; they still attack you.

        It could be a spectator like in source engine game. Or it could be a regular player that is invincible but cannot pick up or drop anything.

      Look up 'Cherno Journo' on YouTube... He's been doing just that since the early days of the mod.

    That petrol bowser kind of reminded me of claptrap for a moment there and I had a weird crossover hallucination

    "Hello traveller! New missions are available on the chernarus bounty board"

    Imagine if you could keep a journal in DayZ and put photographs you take in-game in it. When you are killed people can come across it and read your story.

      Can you not write on paper with the various pens around the map?

        Editable journals were high on the 'request' list for standalone IIRC... Not sure whether they've been implemented yet but pretty sure they will be eventually (photos though, probably not).

    Is this the mod or the standalone?

      Standalone.

      Look at the models, clothing, backpacks, etc.

    Some pretty average shots really.
