share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

As promised previously by the team at Bohemia Interactive, there's one last update coming to DayZ in 2020.

Having rolled out the 1.09 update in September, the developers are now getting ready to release 1.10.


This is likely set to release in full during November, but for now, the team have released the experimental 1.10 update for testing.

PS4 users, look away, as this is only for PC and Xbox players for the time being.

As with any experimental build, the team are looking for as much feedback as possible, but in their own words, the 1.10 update has "packed quite a lot [in]", so it should be a goodun'.

If you want the nitty-gritty details on everything that's changed, you can find the official patch notes further down. For now, here's a look at what's changed as per the team at Bohemia Interactive.

DayZ 1.10 Update New Features

Leg Fractures


Many of you will be pleased to know that we’re returning leg fractures to the game, alongside the improvised fixture (splint). Your legs can be broken in all kinds of situations like falling, combat, stepping on a bear trap, or even while jumping out of a car. When something like that happens, the player is forced into a prone state and the injury state is automatically triggered, thereby slowing the player down. If no splint is applied, any pressure put on your leg will quickly result in you falling into a state of unconsciousness. To help visualize this, we’ve added new shock hit and level post-process feedback. Keep in mind that your leg will eventually heal over time, but a splint will go a long way in kick-starting the healing process.

Cold Survival Tweaks

To add illness to injury, the cold survival aspect of the game is finally getting some much-needed attention:

  • We reworked the behavior of base environment temperatures in order to authentically reflect warm afternoons and cold mornings. Each terrain now has defined day and night temperatures for every month, which means simply setting up the time of year on your server can automatically make the cold survival side of things considerably easier or harder.
  • We also added a character heat buffer. Now you can keep the warmth you gained from a fireplace for a certain amount of time, even if you leave your toasty surroundings.
  • We balanced the insulation of all your clothing items, which means you can now see how well your item is insulated by using the inventory tool tip / inspect window.
  • The amount of wetness an item can hold is now specific to each wearable and is typically based on the type of material it’s made from. This means that not all items can reach a maximum (i.e. drenched) state. It does, however, mean that even waterproof items can now get damp because even those can be subject to wetness, even if it’s only on the surface.

As you can see, there’s plenty going on in this cold survival package and we can’t wait to see what the impacts are. We’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on all your feedback and making any necessary adjustments.


Improvised shelters + looting changes 

If you’re a fan of wilderness survival, then say hello to improvised shelters. You can build these small structures out of various materials, including a new fabric which can also be used to replace ruined sections of tents. These shelters work well as storage spaces and can also serve as protection from the rain.

We also applied a few fixes to the collision of dead player bodies which should now clip with walls a lot less, and you can expect more improvements to come. Until then, you’ll be glad to know that looting the bodies is easier than ever.

There’s tons more to unpack, but instead of us spoiling all the surprises, head on over to the Experimental servers and let us know what you think!
