DayZ 1.06 Ready To Download, Livonia’s Best Counterpart

As first announced, the DayZ Livonia DLC was scheduled to release with 1.06. That said, now that DayZ Livonia is finally released, the update 1.06 is also available to download. This update is not small, and it serves to sustain the changes made by Livonia, bringing the mammals to the world of Chernarus as well.

Below you can find some of the most important features introduced in 1.06:

  • The Bears, new kings of the forest, have started to roam Chernarus and Livonia.
  • Fishing is the new way to relax, catch junk, and occasionally some fish.
  • The Vaiga, Blaze, Kolt 1911, and BK-43 are now available to diversify your arsenal.
  • If you want a green Ada or a black Gunter 2, it’s in store.
  • Xbox and PS4 players can now use their mouse and keyboard on the servers identified as supporting them (the gamepad is always available on all servers).

The full 1.06 patch notes can be found below:

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
