DayZ Developer Urges Bounty Mode Modders to Cease Operations

Posted on November 8, 2012 AT 03:08am

DayZ developer Bohemia Interactive is calling for the creators of a new Bounty Mode mod to cease operations as the gambling aspect goes against design principals.

Bounty Mode is an unofficial mod that allows players to pay real money for lives and equipment and in return can earn money from kills in-game. A spokesperson for Bohemia has told VG247 that the developer is requesting that the add-on be taken offline.

“We believe that the elements of gambling that DayZ Bounty introduces challenges the basic game design aspects that DayZ is built upon,” the spokesperson said. “It changes the focus of DayZ from being a creative, enjoyable, gritty gaming experience to a game that is based almost solely on financial gain and that is not something we want to be associated with.”

“We will be contacting the owners of the DayZ Bounty website directly over the coming days, to ask that they cease their activities in their current form.”
