Bohemia Interactive has announced a brand new DayZ hotfix to deal with a couple more recently surfaced issues. The Hotfix aims to improve the game’s stability, deal with some crash issues and fix tents inventories making them no longer accessible from outside a base.
This is the third hotfix for the current DayZ version 1.12, and Bohemia Interactive has announced that it’s arriving today, at 15:00 CEST. The server maintenance will last for approximately 1 hour. This could potentially push community servers to apply the changes, which could indirectly shut them down periodically.
Without further ado, you can find out the complete notes as published by Bohemia Interactive.
