DAYZ UPDATE - The patch notes for the DayZ 1.09 hotfix have been released by Bohemia Interactive via the games official forums. We've added all changes and fixes from this latest update at the bottom of this page. Unlike the original 1.09 update it's only a few minor changes to nothing to worry about. Just remember that this update has not yet been pushed to console players. That hotfix update is set to drop this Thusday, September 17. Keep scrolling for those new patch notes.
Original story - DayZ developer Bohemia Interactive has today announced a new hotfix for players, which will begin rolling out shortly, but only after a period of server maintenance taking place later today.
Writing on Twitter the developer told users via the games official account:
"At 14:00 (CEST) we will be deploying a 1.09 hotfix on PC. As a result, PC servers will be down for a short period of time."
Those wondering when that is, it's 1pm BST for those in the UK.
For the time being it's not clear precisely how long this period of maintenance will take, but the best bet is to assume the game will be offline for a period of a couple of hours.
Equally so, it's unclear what bug fixes the devs intend to make, but we imagine there are a few issues that need ironing out having released the new 1.09 update last week.
For anyone who hasn't jumped into DayZ in a while, last week the new 1.09 update to the game made a number of changes that will no doubt be welcomed by the games loyal fanbase.
For one, the long-awaited Revolver made its return to the game, alongside a new gun never before seen - the Deagle.
"This beast of a pistol, available in silver and rare gold variants, features a nine .357 round magazine and fits the re-introduced pistol scope to engage targets over longer distances," developers explained last week.
Of course, this was far from the only additions to the game, but we're not here to relive what happened last week, so hop over to the DayZ blog to read everything they added as part of their 1.09 update.
For those of you playing DayZ on PS4 and Xbox One, don't panic, Bohemia Interactive have stated that they intend to release the new hotfix to his consoles later this week.
Thursday, to be more precise.
"Console players can expect the deployment between 14:00 - 16:00 (CEST) 17/09/2020" the official account tweeted.
For those looking for patch notes listing all the changes with this latest hotfix, there's no point scouring the internet for details just yet.
The official DayZ twitter account has yet to share any official patch notes, but promised they will be forthcoming later today.
Likely following the deployment on PC. We'll be sure to update this page as more information becomes available.
