A new DayZ update should be published in a few days. You will now find out exactly when that is and what to expect.

Update Overview: The DayZ developer Bohemia Interactive announced via Twitter that the next DayZ update should appear this month. That applies at least to one of the three existing platforms.

Then the DayZ update comes & that's in it

What's in it? So far, the new DayZ content for February can only be played on the PC experimental servers. DayZ Update 1.11 is a slightly smaller patch that focuses more on fixes and adjustments to existing content.

The most important contents of the DayZ update 1.11 are:

  • Zombies & animals take damage from barbed wire
  • The heat from fire has been reduced
  • 5.56 mm ammo is now about 9% slower than before
  • Car batteries are consumables, so they lose their durability.
  • self made gardens can now be removed using a pickaxe

All other content, bug fixes and changes in the latest DayZ update can be found here.

When does it start? According to Bohemia Interactive, the new content for DayZ will appear for the PC in February 2021. To be precise, this is February 16, 2020. So far, this only applies to the PC. As usual, the console versions follow a little later.

In addition, you have to endure a setback, because with the DayZ update 1.11 there will be a full database wipe. So characters, bases, and pretty much all progress are set to zero.

Not only the official servers should be affected, modded servers and Namalsk are also affected by the wipe. For newcomers, this may be the right time to get started, as everyone has to start from scratch on February 16. No gigantic bases and overrun traders!

The interest in digging deep into the gaming industry stems from the DayZ Mod for Arma 2 in 2012. Kevin started working in the gaming industry in 2016. First as a trainee at Survivethis, the biggest German Survival-Games-Site at that time. Only half a year later, he got accepted at Gamestar and later MeinMMO. Now, on he implements all his Knowledge to deliver comprehensive news, guides, interviews and more unique topics.
