A new DayZ update has been launched this week, and developers Bohemia Interactive have shared news on its official patch notes. While some platforms got DayZ Update 1.19 earlier than others, everyone should now have access to the new build. Bohemia warned fans earlier this year that patches in 2020 would be orientated toward catching bugs.
The development team has lived up to that commitment of late, with the last three updates containing small content changes and long lists of bug fixes.
And this week’s DayZ update also contains a number of bug fixes fans will want to know.
- Fixed: A possible server crash
- Fixed: An issue with stacking items into items using swapping
- Fixed: Micro freezes caused by loading of objects such as tents, cars and base building objects
- Tweaked: Temporarily disabled the sun shaft effect
- ActionDrainLiquid and ActionPourLiquid replaced with ActionTransferLiquid (old actions were removed).
While more content changes are expected this year, Bohemia has laid out its plans, telling gamers:
“We would like to dedicate more time for each update this year and thus will leave bigger gaps between the updates to make sure we have more time to prepare for all platforms, which leaves us currently at 5 Game Updates planned for this year.
“This year, the development will focus on stability, bug fixing, and gameplay improvements, along with some new small-scale content.
“Please keep in mind that our policy on announcing exact release dates – or when a feature is coming – will not change.
“We will only make said announcements when we are certain we can deliver within a reasonable time frame – which usually means a feature is already well into its production.”
“DayZ is a complex beast of a game and bug fixing is a constant necessity – therefore, we’ll continue our best efforts to squash as many bugs as we can.”
