Hey Survivors,

2022 has been an exhilarating ride for all of us.
In 1st quarter of 2022, We started off strong by hitting our peak player count on Steam and maintaining a high amount of active players. For this, we’d like to offer our deepest gratitude to our wonderful community who has stood by us and empowered us to prosper. It is such a humbling experience and we sincerely hope that you’ll stick around as we strive for newer heights!

At the moment, nominations for this year’s Steam Awards are underway and we’d like to ask for your support once again by nominating DayZ for the Labor of Love Award 2022. The criteria for this prestigious award is as follows:

“This game has been out for a while. The team is well past the debut of their creative baby, but being the good parents they are, these devs continue to nurture and support their creation. This game, to this day, is still getting new content after all these years.”

This, as you already know, perfectly describes what DayZ is. It’s not just a labor of love that belongs to the dev team or Bohemia Interactive in general; it also belongs to you, the community, who’ve made friends through the game and collaborated with each other to tailor the DayZ experience to your unique tastes.

This year, the team has worked rigorously to release 4 updates along with supported patches and 3 seasonal events, We introduced new content that includes various firearms, new playstyles and upgrades, customizations to community servers, and an entirely new point of interest added to our DLC map Livonia (underground bunkers). It’s been a long and arduous road for the team but it’s totally worth it because we know and love our committed community of modders, content creators, and server owners who have been pushing out amazing content throughout the year like creative tools, week-long competitions, and a plethora of new community maps.

We are incredibly grateful for your support and believe that both the community and developers deserve this amazing award.

So if you feel the same way, please cast your vote and show us your support.

Thank you,
The DayZ Team
