DayZ developers Bohemia Interactive have completed the first year of Early Access development, completing an important milestone in the game's progress.

Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Exo Zombies Are Coming

Q1 2015
- Basic vehicles
- Advanced loot distribution
- New renderer
- New Zombie AI
- Basic stealth system (zombies and animals)
- Diseases

Q2 2015
- Advanced vehicles (repair and modifications)
- Advanced animals (life cycle, group behavior)
- Player statistics
- New UI

- Character life span + soft skills
- Animal predators + birds
- Aerial transport
- Console prototype

Q4 2015
- Animal companions

- BETA version, expected price 34,99 EUR / 43.99 USD

Bohemia also says that new items, vehicles, and weapons will be added every month. The full game will release in 2016, but the price will continue to rise until then. If you're interested or set on getting the game, it may be wise to jump in now and save yourself money in the future. Waiting can be prudent as well, though, as many games have recently had launch trouble or failed to meet development expectations.
