DayZ will receive “robust support” throughout 2024 and beyond

After the significant title update released earlier this week, fans of the survival horror game DayZ have been eagerly awaiting news on what’s next for the game. Bohemia Interactive has restated those queries with an exciting announcement: DayZ will receiverobust support” throughout 2024 and beyond.

The future of DayZ looks promising, with the studio planning to roll out an array of new character cosmetics, allowing players to personalize their survivors in the post-apocalyptic world further. Among the anticipated additions is an exotic long-range rifle set to elevate the gameplay experience. This year also saw the introduction of new camouflage variants for the ballistic helmet in update 1.24.

The audio aspect of DayZ is undergoing an overhaul, with the newly strengthened audio team focusing on refining the sounds of firearms and other elements of the game’s sound design. This includes the introduction of new action sounds, a significant rebalancing of audio tied to player actions, and adding ambient music to enrich the game’s atmosphere and tension.

The developers are planning to make some improvements to the gameplay. They aim to make the handling of weapons smoother, increase the damage output of blunt melee weapons, optimize gun particle effects, and refine the collision geometry of foliage. These changes are expected to improve the movement fluidity and overall performance of the game.

DayZ is going to get even better with the addition of more wildlife and advanced terrain tools for modders, which will make the survival experience even more immersive. Players will have to tackle harsh conditions, medical issues, and a wider range of food options, forcing them to develop new survival tactics to stay alive.

Bohemia Interactive has planned special events to enhance the DayZ experience. In addition to the Valentine’s event, players can look forward to Walpurgis, Halloween, and Christmas celebrations, each providing unique gameplay experiences. The studio is also exploring new collaborations with other games for events, which will offer exciting opportunities for community engagement.

Overall, DayZ has gone quite a long way since its stable release, and with update 1.24, things have gone way too interesting and exciting. We’ll be definitely around to seeing what the future will hold for this cruel survival shooter.

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.
