DayZ Hotfix 3 Maintenance Schedule

The DayZ servers will go offline today at 5 am PT/8 am ET/2 pm CEST for one-hour long maintenance. This is only for primary servers of the PC version. There will be no maintenance on console versions.

Originally launched as a mod for Arma 2, DayZ received enough admiration from the community that Bohemia Interactive decided to make it a standalone game.

Since its launch as an Early Access title on Steam, DayZ has changed a lot and the developers still try to make it a better experience with new updates and content. After 5 years of development in Early Access, DayZ finally launched on consoles and PC as a full game, though it still needs support.

DayZ is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The Xbox Game Pass subscribers can play it for free.
