Finally we can show you an in-depth demo of DayZ Standalone. Matt Lightfoot walks us through a lengthy demo of what’s new in the standalone. From crafting to motorbike helmets, this is the definitive DayZ video you’ll see out of E3 2013.

We’ll also be bringing you Part 2 of our reveal later in the week – you’d best subscribe! 😉
