DayZ Gets Another PC Experimental Update Today

DayZ June 7 Update Brings More Fixes and Changes.

DayZ queues another experimental update on the PC platform, which should traverse to the Xbox platform slightly bit later. Evidently, the cycle of update 1.18 is still ongoing as this is the fourth consecutive update during its lifetime, which should address a couple of existing issues and fix resynchronization when picking up certain items.

Remember that this update is solely for the PC experimental servers, which haven’t been concluded as polished yet. The update will be deployed at 14:00 CEST, and its maintenance will take approximately 1 hour. Once everything’s settled, the update will then be transferred to the live servers.

It’s good to notice that DayZ 1.18 is getting all the treatment during Bohemia Interactive’s Arma Reforger development, which is also getting a new update today. Without further ado, below, you can find the complete patch notes for DayZ Experimental 1.18 update #4.
