DayZ Will Shut Down Its Servers For Another 1.18 Experimental Update

Even if noted as small, it still brings a lot of fixes and changes to the table.

DayZ is currently in its 1.18 experimental server cycle. This means that the official experimental servers contain slightly advanced code that hasn’t managed to get to the live servers due to its testing purposes. With that said, a new Hotfix will be deployed in approximately 30 minutes, adding up to a total of three experimental updates for the 1.18 experimental cycle. The latest update is titled 1.18 Update 3, and it contains plenty of fixes and changes.

Unlike the live servers, the experimental servers are there to gather player feedback and help Bohemia Interactive make changes before the content gets over to the live servers. Before its admission, it’s vital to notice how Bohemia Interactive is dealing with all of this, while it’s also dealing with a new product they launched that should haul over a unique Arma experience.

Without further ado, below you can find the complete Patch Notes for 1.18 Experimental Hotfix – Update 3.

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.
