DayZ Update 1.13: Everything You Need To Know

UPDATE - DayZ is moving onto Version 1.14. Follow the link to see the latest DayZ Patch Notes.

[Original Story] - DayZ, Bohemia Interactive's huge open-world survival title, is getting ready to drop its next significant update to the game.

Speaking ahead of the release of the next big update on the 2021 DayZ roadmap, Bohemia Interactive confirmed that the next patch - update 1.13 - will introduce a wipe of both character and server persistence.

The last wipe, we believe, took place March in early March, so it's been a good 3 months since the last significant wipe of the game.

Although it's only coming to official servers, Bohemia Interactive confirmed, writing:

Jump To
“As mentioned in a previous article at the start of the year, Update 1.13 will come with fresh Loot spawns on Official. That means we’ll be conducting complete wipes (all characters, items, vehicles, bases, etc.) on our official servers on release day. We don’t have an exact date set in stone yet, but we’re hoping the update and wipe will occur around the middle of July. Like the previous wipe, we’ll be increasing the occurrence of helicopter crash-site events with high-tier loot on all official servers in the days leading up to the wipe. This will start from July 2nd and run up until the update releases.
Community server owners can decide to wipe at their own discretion.

July 8, 2021 -

Bohemia Interactive has confirmed that DayZ's next patch, update 1.13, will release next week on Tuesday July 13, 2021.

The news was confirmed on Twitter but there are still no details on a precise time for when the update will release, nor any further details on the impending server wipes. More news may follow on Monday ahead of launch.

Right, there's been no word yet on the release of DayZ 1.13 or the impending server wipe.

However, we typically see DayZ updates released on a Thursday, so it's possible we'll see or hear something from Bohemia Interactive on July 8, 2021.

For now, we suggest players make the most of the increase in helicopter crash site events.

What Is The DayZ Update 1.13 Release Date

So far it doesn't seem as though update 1.13 has an official release date, although we suspect it's at least another week away.

As you'll have read above, official servers will see an increase in helicopter crash-sites from July 2 leading up to the release of 1.13. July 2 is this coming Friday, so 1.13 isn't coming for a few days yet.

DayZ 1.13 Patch Notes

At the time of writing, there are no official 1.13 patch notes for DayZ, but there are experimental patch notes for the 1.13 update.

These were released on June 17 and whilst there are not the definitive changes coming with the proper 1.13 update, it does at least give us a glimpse of potential changes on the cards.

DayZ Update 1.13 Server Shutdown

Bohemia Interactive has also confirmed that the new update will shut down a number of official DayZ servers. You'll find a full list of affected servers below.

According to the devs, the reason is to simply merge less populated servers

We’ve been seeing more and more players migrate from Official to Community and we’d like to merge the less populated servers together. Furthermore, most of these servers were a temporary measure meant to run parallel to sales / promotional periods.
