Bohemia Interactive have launched the latest DayZ
on the experimental branches on Steam, bringing with it a host of
technical changes and few new changes for some of the popular weapons
and most common animations. If you're not familiar with the current
patching methods for DayZ the developers first place it on a few
experimental servers before releasing it to the wider public on the
stable servers - players can only access experimental servers through an
opt-in feature on Steam.
It's another lackluster update in terms of new features but it does show that the developers have been hard at work making adjustments to the small but important elements of the game that don't currently function correctly. A number of building mechanics have been addressed, adding spawns to previously empty areas such as Military Tents and Police Stations while loot itself has been tweaked slightly to reduce the regularity of military items appearing in certain areas.
Zombies have also received some much needed attention with new military zombies being far stronger than their civilian based counterparts. For a full list of fixes and adjustments you can check the patch notes below. The update is expected to launch on stable servers week ending February 7th.
