DayZ

A new and unscheduled  critical update fix for DayZ Standalone has just been pushed to the live servers this evening to fix a major problem.

This update fixes a problems where players were finding themselves trapped in a “dead” state which is really not very helpful. Fortunately this has been jumped on right away and it’s been sorted and they’s also sorted out a critical bug when looting other players inventory. There’s also new gear added in this update including cowboy hats and a sewing kit among other things.

The full notes for this unscheduled update are as follows.

Fixed:
