DayZ 1.09 is now available on all platforms – Patch Notes

After its cycle on the experimental servers, DayZ 1.09 is coming out to all platforms soon. Currently, the 1.09 update is available on the PC, and the consoles are scheduled to receive the same a tiny bit later. It is vital to notice that Bohemia Interactive has enriched the world of DayZ with content, multiple fixes, and now the 1.09 update that gets us even closer to a more realistic survival game.

This update brings numerous fixes to the game, but also adds new weapons and building mechanics. Flags and flag poles are now available in the game’s live version, alongside some changed buildings and infrastructure. Moreover, two new weapons are being added to the live version, and those are the very renowned and sounding Desert Eagle and the Revolver.

Item pickups, item sharing, and also collision fixes have been performed. Most of the broken player actions, such as those mentioned above, now should work as intended. It appears that DayZ is strongly focusing on its future content, and compared to previous patch cycles, it feels like Bohemia has expedited DayZ’s development process to a whole new level.

For the complete patch notes and each addition since the first experimental note, check the section below:
