So excited! The interiors look amazing! Also, the character in the last screenshot's got swag.

Q: Do we actually spawn in our underwear?
A: No, but you can drop your clothes, or I guess someone might order you to drop them.

Q: How do we get to be one of the testers?
A: Those who are testing will get the game for free, and never have to pay for future versions. Their job will be tough. We're starting by rewarding the forum moderators, reddit moderators, dayz mod development and community support team, etc...

Rocket also did a quick Q&A on liriks livestream, these are the (paraphrased) answers:
- Some twitch streamers will be in the test
- There will be an NDA in the closed test, but streaming will be allowed.
- Release (test) could be any day now
- Clothing is unisex
- Weapons will have durability and there will be weapon cleaning.
- They want to allow modding later on, once the game is stable/secure.
- Cars/vehicles will be phase two priority, Rocket wants to redo them completely so you can change parts, engines, build, mix and match Mad Max style.
- Rocket hopes to be able to "Mad Max style" build cars, interchanging parts and engines etc.
- More blood gore, not cheesy though
- Individual bone fractures will exist in a few months, it's not complete but the engine architecture is done.
- DayZ will likely be ported to xbox if sales are over 1 million.
- The game is heavily optmized, our three programmers are the people who made the engine, there WILL be some problems, at least for the first three months but most of that will be server oriented, most fps improvements at client end will probably be soaked up by graphic improvements.
- Night and lighting? The artist and programmer who revised the lighting for ArmA3 will be helping with DayZ, closer to release.
- The new skin shader is from the ARMA III engine
- Adding children to the game has been considered.

Also a Q&A we did with Matt can be found here:

You included a screenshot of a guy in underwear and a shirt, we don't have to run round half naked until we find clothes do we?
Also, will the beta be random testers? And how will they be selected?

Awesome!

Are the items in the cupboard from screenshot #4 also part of the new item spawn system?
Also, can one open cupboards and such?
New night, New day, New place, New prey,
New rules, New names, New ways, New game.

In side, Insane, In fear, In changes, In need, In pain,
In deep, enslaved.

No light, No space, No signs, No state, No voice, No face, No choice,
No grace.
