Bohemia Interactive reveals plans for DayZ in 2024, building toward 'a colossal milestone and an exhilarating moment you won't want to miss'Feb 21, 2024 - PC GamerBohemia Interactive released its first stable update of the year for its long-running zombie survival game DayZ yesterday. Update 1.24 brings several new features to the game, including a new weapon, the Vikhr rifle, more camouflage skins for the ballistic helmet, and an array of new sounds and animations to further liven up the game's fictional country of Chernarus... Read more.DayZ | 1.24 Stable Update - Out Now & DayZ in 2024Feb 20, 2024 - Community AnnouncementsHello, Survivors! We’re releasing update 1.24 today - our first stable update of 2024! Similar to other updates we’ve released early in the year, this one features a thorough tidying up. Basically, we went through a bunch of pending tasks for quality-of-life improvements and addressed an array of outstanding issues. While it may be rather humble in nature, update 1.24 will serve as a solid foundation to build upon and lead us to our major update which will be featured in the autumn. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/e3d8c824cbe30c592eb4d6de067ff1f19cff51f5.jpg Those who were involved in the update’s experimental phase will already be familiar with our brand new Vikhr rifle, which features a new 30 round 9x39mm magazine that’s compatible with all 9x39mm rifles. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/f0c78cc1d24cbb0bdea9b98fd14e4d5234b1c0ce.jpg In addition to the new rifle and magazine, update 1.24 also offers new camouflage variants of the ballistic helmet. These will help enrich the variety of your player character, and protect your head during the exciting journey DayZ will embark on this year. Here are some more notable improvements we're particularly fond of: Smoother weapon handling when you make contact with obstacles Increased damage output of blunt melee weapons against infected and animals Optimized gun particle effects for better client performance Refined collision geometry of foliage that improves performance and overall fluidity of movement (both player and vehicle) Rebalanced recoil patterns for automatic rifles Official release of the Linux version for the DayZ server slated for the stable branch To get the complete scope of everything available in update 1.24—including an array of new sounds and animations—we encourage you to drop by our official forums and peruse the comprehensive update notes available here. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/979f9e085ff89a11457301bdb86e971271fd5175.jpg DayZ in 2024 While we're thrilled to start the year with update 1.24, we're equally eager to offer you a glimpse into what we have planned for the remainder of 2024. This year represents a significant departure from our typical update delivery model. Nevertheless, we want to be clear that DayZ will continue to receive robust support throughout 2024 and beyond. As we indicated last year (DayZ in 2023 & DayZ 10 Year Anniversary Q&A), our focus has been on expanding the scope of the DayZ brand. Significant resources have been allocated to this endeavor, and we’re poised to showcase the initial outcomes later on this year – it's a colossal milestone and an exhilarating moment you won't want to miss! We’re still working out all the details, but I am pleased to share our strategic areas of focus for 2024. One of the things we’ll be continuing is our dedication to new character cosmetics which are a core aspect of the DayZ experience. We’re also planning to unveil a rather exotic long-range rifle. Our recently reinforced audio team has already begun the major task of reworking the...DayZ Indie SaleFeb 14, 2024 - Community AnnouncementsGreetings, Survivors, As spring departs, we too herald the arrival of our thrilling Stream Indie Sale!

We’re excited to announce that Experimental game update 1.24 is now available on experimental branches on Steam! As with most updates early in the year, this one includes a clean sweep. Basically, we went through our backlog and tackled a variety of lingering issues. Let’s go through some of the major ones, so you know what to focus on while you’re enjoying the experimental branch. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/396266ab3cf4069279ed8935c27923a73e6c996e.jpg It’s pretty much tradition at this point that our awesome community breaks DayZ’s record for highest player count every new year! It was definitely a confidence boost this time around, as we face a number of challenges in this year’s plan—by far the most ambitious we’ve had since the engine switch in 2018. But it’s far too soon to talk about such things here. Instead, this post is dedicated to the year’s first experimental release: game update 1.24! As with most updates early in the year, this one includes a clean sweep. Basically, we went through our backlog and tackled a variety of lingering issues. Let’s go through some of the major ones, so you know what to focus on while you’re enjoying the experimental branch. The collision geometries of vegetation (particularly trees and bushes) received a substantial polishing pass. Our aim was to simplify and fix issues which were causing odd collisions with vehicles. There were also performance problems with too many particles, which occurred whenever a bullet pierced through branches. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/382451a69e0649afdd465eeb0eb3dc3e00d99a25.png Speaking of particles, we took a look at firearm particles and optimized them for smoother gunplay. We also increased the recoil slightly in several automatic firearms. Furthermore, we unified our approach to randomly loaded firearms that spawn in the world. This change now makes it impossible to recognize whether a firearm was dropped by a player or spawned in recently. We dramatically improved the way weapon lifting behaves, making it smoother and more precise now. We also improved the way weapon lengths are calculated. We hope these changes will make close-quarter combat with firearms less frustrating overall. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/4153b37151c7b322caf8b142c03bb994fcc235b6.jpg Unfortunately, we had to postpone making more complex changes to the infected AI, though we still found time to investigate some of the issues. As a result, we significantly reduced the noise from the impact of bullets. This means the infected won’t be so easily drawn to the impact from fired bullets (particularly helpful when suppressed firearms are used). We also increased the damage output of blunt melee weapons and tools against the infected and animal AI. This was done by adding a portion of their shock damage into the total damage dealt. Moving on, a noteworthy improvement was also made to bandaging. If your character has multiple bleed sources, and your bandage stack has enough uses, you can now...DayZ Winter SaleDec 21, 2023 - Community AnnouncementsHello Survivors, As the frost sets in, so do the frosty discounts!

We’re mixing it up this time with yet another celebration: DayZ’s 10th anniversary. Christmas events will run from December 14 to January 9. Let’s jump right into what you can expect. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/1f3ee9e71d75c6dc9b7d4f61cd9bbe346ea55c4f.jpg The classic and much-beloved singing Christmas trees are making a comeback this year. They can be found in the center of town in both Chernarus and Livonia. Gift boxes will spawn around the trees and serve as hotspots with high engagement rates. The boxes will offer loot from various tiers and double as reusable wrapping paper, so you can embrace the spirit of giving by sharing the joy with fellow survivors. Infected Santa and his sleigh will be crashing into forests and rooftops. Please note that they won't be replacing normal dynamic helicopter crashes, though they will spawn loot in gift boxes that’re just as good. Keep an eye out around the wreckage for Rudolph and his friends. We hope they’ll stick the premature landing. In addition to classic seasonal items like Santa’s beard and hat, we're also introducing new assets to help you embrace the holiday spirit: {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/58be410881cc18b63cabad9177145eb9b432f3fe.jpg Christmas-themed woolen gloves (including the fingerless version) A variety of Christmas-themed headbands A selection of consumable candy canes with new custom animations ​​​​​​​The Morozko Hat (inspired by Ded Moroz, the Slavic version of St. Nick) But wait, there’s more! We mentioned briefly that it’s DayZ’s 10th anniversary. That’s why we left a few surprises in the game for you to find (yes, that includes the 10-year anniversary shirt). If you discover what the surprises are, we hope you’ll share your findings via screenshots, videos, etc. so everyone can enjoy.DayZ and Icarus team up with a cheeky 'The Day After' survival Steam sale bundleDec 12, 2023 - PC GamerWe weren't terribly surprised to see early access zombie survival game The Day Before crash and burn, but the speed with which it fell apart—a mere four days between the game's disastrous launch and developer Fntastic closing—was a bit of a shock...

Originally a mod for the tactical shooter Arma 2, DayZ first arrived in 2012, with various, standalone launches following in 2013. A hardcore, quasi-battle royale game, it became the model for some of the biggest hits of the last decade. Now, DayZ is pulling in more Steam players than ever before. Read the rest of the story...

We’ve brought highly anticipated changes to Vybor Air Base on Chernarus (commonly known as NWAF), the sky has gotten a massive visual upgrade, and spawning into the game has changed. Check out our change notes (Steam, Consoles) for all the details, or keep on reading for an overall summary of what you can expect. One of the update’s most exciting changes is the way the day and night skies look. Clouds are generally a lot more defined now, and the transition between day and night is smoother than ever before. We even developed a custom sky setup for Chernarus and Livonia so now they feel different from each other. We truly hope these changes will help make you feel more immersed in the environment. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/4e376724111af6a31c48d69be74fc50cea447170.jpg Prepare for a thrilling transformation at Vybor Air Base in Chernarus, fondly known as NWAF. Our latest update brings you exciting changes, featuring brand-new Points of Interest (POIs). The revamped layout not only pays homage to the legacy iteration of this iconic airfield but also introduces something fresh to the table. With the land expertly flattened and an intensified sense of paranoia, we've restored the high-risk, high-reward atmosphere that awaits you at this renowned location. We’ve also introduced new assets into the game. Those who remember the old Arma 2 DayZ Mod may recognize the legendary firearm - the DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle). This iconic semi-automatic firearm (based on the legendary M14), is used by the US marine corps, shoots .308, can attach most western sights, and loads 10 or 20-round magazines. It’s definitely a must have if you’re looking for a powerful mid-range firearm! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/9ba151ddd6132e498f0a90841a69588c8a9c3934.jpg For those of you who like to keep your valuables in stashes, say hello to the field shovel. It’s a compact tool that can do most of what the adult shovel does. There are also a bunch of character-related clothing items for your head, as well as new gloves. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/939a4a2b175328eefe9fe729758812158a0f7825.jpg We’ve also attempted to bring new players closer together with the introduction of player spawn groups. This mechanic switches between different spawn points around the map during the server’s runtime. That means you can start or respawn on a server at the same time as your friends and you'll have a very good chance of spawning in the same area. This makes it easier to meet up when you're just getting started! Remember: finding a friend in the starting areas is always easier than bumping into them when you’re fully geared! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/060bb6ec805ceef85f908c43095019cb7460e61f.jpg But wait, there’s more!

DayZ Halloween Event Is Now Live!Oct 18, 2023 - Community AnnouncementsHey Survivors, Fall is here, and the spooktacular end of October is imminent. Our annual Halloween celebration has returned. We have set the duration from 17th of October the 7th of November. During this time, we're not just reintroducing seasonal assets and scenery changes but adding some exciting twists. Let's briefly discuss them. The beloved spooky zones are back, so make sure you're dressed warmly with good insulation, as the temperature can significantly drop, casting an eerie blue tint over your surroundings. Keep your senses sharp, for these spooky areas are now haunted by the lingering spirits of the departed. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/9614b3d21c750f4fde7a6109e0be532d60f8833b.jpg The seasonal infected types, from the pumpkin-infected to the formidable mummy variants, will be spawning in spooky zones and cemeteries, respectively. Of course, we're also bringing back other seasonal infected types to align with the thematic essence. Also, keep an eye out for tribes of goats, as one of them will exhibit a certain demonic presence in these grim settings. We are “officially” debuting some seasonal cosmetic additions we have added into the game over the past few updates. Notably, the Hooded Chainmail Coif and Eye Masks (Day of the Dead variant) will be scattered throughout the maps, alongside other Halloween-themed cometic items. It's not just about gears and assets; your character will have a certain spooky appearance, perfect for trick-or-treating with other survivors in every scenario. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/a3ea2d1a7d4bc4751cf024f8ae5c52f9fe59994a.jpg If you happen to capture eerie screenshots or create video content of your trick-or-treating adventures, please send them our way! We sincerely hope you enjoy these additions.DayZ | 1.23 Experimental Update - Out NowOct 5, 2023 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/73dcbcb24f18f0ce2eabff92b9d70f751286b589.jpg 📢Hello, survivors! We're thrilled to announce that the experimental phase for the much-awaited game update 1.23 has begun. For those on Steam, dive right in and experience all the enhancements we've made. From major additions like player spawn groups to quality of life improvements in the server browser, this update promises an enriched gameplay experience. Check out the full change notes on our forums, and join us in shaping the future of DayZ. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/71fccbf1e3900a8040d96618059610d0614f2b6a.jpg One of the major additions in this update are player spawn groups. We’ve updated the player spawn system in such a way that it now cycles between pre-defined sets of positions during a server’s runtime. Our primary goal is to keep fresh players closer together and to increase the chances of interactions. Finding good values for this new system may take a bit of time, so please let us know what your experience is like. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/a80d7580f044881cf05eae7fb37b5883ddbed72e.jpg Speaking of player spawns, we’re also introducing the ability to adjust player spawn gear through a dedicated mission file. Documentation for both of these features will be coming to the official wiki during the experimental period. We made a number of tweaks to driving the M3S truck and M1025 off-road, which should help players while driving uphill and during general off-road conditions. In addition to this, we’ve also introduced a push vehicle action, which should help get vehicles unstuck from various light crashes with the environment. We’ve also continued efforts to increase your immersion by adding more custom sounds to actions within the game. You can find a list of them in the change notes. Keep in mind that this is a massive undertaking, but we are slowly getting to them all. The server browser has received quality of life improvements again, this time with the introduction of the number of players (if any) in the queue, as well as displaying the time on each server (previously missing in the console server browser). We’ve also decided to disable the placing of base building objects in the underground areas, though server owners can re-enable it through the server-side settings. The long awaited overhaul of the Vybor Air Base (commonly known as NWAF) on Chernarus has arrived, alongside many supporting assets. We hope these changes will improve your experience within the area by making the looting less tedious and interactions more fun overall. Speaking of looting, we made some adjustments to the distribution of higher tier weapons in both Chernarus and Livonia. While you’re (probably) shooting at each other at the updated airfield, please keep an eye out for any character movement desyncs on your targets while shooting between trees, as we’ve been working on some low-level fixes to tackle desyncs during those situations. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/1a020e745a89a9293d81315...DayZ Update 1.22 - Out NowAug 29, 2023 - Community AnnouncementsGreetings, Survivors! Update 1.22 is here! While it may be light on the content side, the update offers a bunch of interesting fixes, changes, and additions. As usual, you can find the full list on our official forums The biggest highlight of this update is the addition of new low tier bags, as well as a major rebalance pass of existing backpacks. We’ve always felt that the early game was lacking in variety, and we’ve tried to fill that gap with this update. Additionally, bigger backpacks are now more rare than before. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/cf77c368ffb129da987866fb5c013b7726a3dcda.jpg Melee combat received a number of balancing changes. This includes a reworking of how bleeding is applied (i.e. respecting the values of individual clothes you wear), and a rebalancing of damage and protection values. Basically, we tried to establish a greater difference between what is considered a tool and a weapon.

The most obvious one is that the game and PC launcher now display the absolute number of players on a server. The PC launcher server browser also received several quality of life improvements to the direct connect window, as well as to tab switching, which now makes searching in different tabs a lot faster. Speaking of connecting to servers: have you ever had a problem with waiting in the queue, only to find that your mod files are outdated or corrupted?

Now it processes the data integrity check right at the beginning. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4458811/ced2924ba24b69034b01fb49a50c08b56971c628.png Last, but certainly not least, we are also hard at work on our upcoming Halloween event. We can’t tell you how excited we are to present all our spooky goodies to you later in October! Until then, we wish you many great adventures in the world of DayZ. On behalf of the DayZ team, Adam
