DayZ, the open world, online zombie survival mod will be receiving an update with a significantly new gameplay element… Dogs.
That’s right, now man’s best friend can help you survive in the harsh world that is DayZ. Dogs in DayZ get better the more they’re used and learn. At first, they are not very useful just as any dog would be in real life. But as time goes on in the game, the dog gains experience and becomes better at assisting you. Killing zombies and sniffing out bandits should become a lot more dynamic with this new addition. Although I’m sure plenty of bandit players will go out of their way to troll other players and kill their dogs.
Check out this video from IGN showing you some of the dog gameplay…
