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

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.
The much anticipated 1.11 update and the associated wipe (both characters and servers) are projected to deploy on 16th of February.
The wipe is to optimize the update's stability and to get clean foundations to monitor changes made with previous economy updates. pic.twitter.com/j4jFZDedft

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!
