DayZ Update: 1.12 Experimental PC Patch Notes & Latest Changes

+ 1
Jump To

Today (April 15) DayZ developers Bohemia Interactive have announced a new update is rolling.


This isn't the DayZ 1.12 update fans of the game are waiting for, that's going to take a little bit more time based on our assement of the DayZ 2021 roadmap.

But if you're one of the dedicated players enjoying what DayZ has to offer on the experimental servers, you will be able to reap the benefits of this latest patch.

What is DayZ Experimental?

Like all good online games, DayZ has a testing ground. Another server if you will that allows the devs to roll out updates and trial changes before they push it to the main game.

This way, the developers can be sure that when they do roll out any big changes to the main player base, it's been thoroughly tested for bugs and balanced appropriately (as much as they can, anyway).

How to play DayZ experimental?

If you're on Steam: Right-click DayZ in your Steam Library and select "Properties". Now go to the "BETAs" tab. Select if you wish to opt into or out of the Experimental version.

If you're on Xbox: Download 'DayZ - Experimental' from the Xbox Live store.
