Hello, 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.



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 compatib... Read more

Greetings, Survivors!
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.



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!

Hey Survivors,
The holidays are here and the spirit of Christmas has descended upon Chernarus and Livonia. 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.



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 cra... Read more

Greetings, Survivors!

Update 1.23 is now live on Steam! 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.

Hey 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.



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
