The DayZ community is back, and now PC players can dive into the USA for the first time with the help of the new map Bitterroot – Montana to be exact!
What is it about? The community is constantly creating new maps to expand the diversity of DayZ. We already have wonderful maps like Deer Island or Namalsk. The former already took us to Canada, but now we’re heading to the mountains of Montana. However, playing Bitterroot comes with a big catch.
New DayZ map Bitterroot – What to expect?
Bitterroot is based on the mountains of the same name in the US state of Montana and you can see that — in the distance. Because in detail, Bitterroot is still in an early development phase and uses a lot of assets from Chernarus and Livonia. But this can change in the future, because maps like Eden already show that DayZ also supports foreign 3d models.
Typical American houses are still missing. The correct vehicle wrecks already exist. Police cars, school buses and co – check! Also, the developer of the map has already built some landmarks of the region. The mountains in the distance additionally create the right atmosphere.
But as we all know, authenticity isn’t everything when it comes to the fun of playing DayZ. The developer supports the atmosphere on Bitterroot with cool locations and football stadiums that are converted into medic centers. Or how about clogged high-way passages, full of overgrown wrecks. Flooding in some localities, which are located near a lake or river.
