Shroud Takes Fans on a Nostalgic Trip to DayZ

Published 09/03/2020, 1:51 PM EDT

Shroud recently threw in a bit of a nostalgic treat for the fans who have been watching him from the very beginning. He played the classic survival game DayZ, which was also the first game he ever streamed. Watching Shroud play this game took fans back to 2017 when the G.O.A.T. would hop on the servers and show them how it’s done.

Shroud revealed that he still remembers parts of the map accurately. “It’s nice to remember this s**t man. This is the OG game,” he said. It looked like the Lord’s still got it, although he ended up missing a shot at a vehicle moving in a straight line. Shroud’s revisit to the game showed the fans how much the game itself has changed as well.

Shroud revisits DayZ, but what is DayZ exactly?

DayZ originally started as a post-apocalyptic survival FPS set in Russia. The objective of the game was to gather supplies while exploring the open-world map and do whatever was necessary for survival. The game’s official website described it as:

“The post-soviet country of Chernarus is struck by an unknown virus, turning the majority population into frenzied infected. Fighting over resources has bred a hostile mentality among survivors, driving what’s left of humanity to collapse. You are one of the few immune to the virus – how far will you go to survive?”

If it sounds like a Battle Royale, that is because it formed the primary basis for the genre. This open-world sandbox survival game would later have a dedicated Battle Royale mode.

However, the game featured more realistic features than the usual BR titles out there. For example, players could fall sick and throw up if they consumed an edible that had gone bad. Features like this made the game a hit back in the day. Although it is a relatively dead game right now, it featured a detailed gameplay experience, not just in terms of details, but the visuals as well.
