DayZ Update 1.12 Hotfix 2 - Fixed Bugs, Server Down Time, Platforms

A new hotfix will be deployed soon.

Bohemia Interactive tweeted about an upcoming DayZ update for today, which is a small hotfix that will lead the server to go down for one hour at least.

As one of the popular multiplayer survival games from Bohemia Interactive, DayZ has been long in development and available as an early access game for years until the final days of 2018.

Since then the game is available as a complete experience for players on consoles as well as PC, but the developer support still continues as more bugs emerge and more players join the post-apocalyptic world of DayZ.

Later in April this year, Bohemia Interactive launched update 1.12 that brought some big changes to the gameplay, especially the players’ combat against infected people in the game.

The new hotfix is aimed to get rid of the bugs that were unintentionally added to the game via update 1.12.

DayZ is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
