༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ  0.62 


Hello guys,

Today is THE DAY(Z) and we are pushing out the major 0.62 update do Experimental branch.

What is new:

  • New tree models
  • Denser forests
  • New clutter (grass, small plants)
  • New surface textures - plains and such
  • Improved wind behavior
  • New shader for the wind, affecting trees and grass
  • Tweaked and changed lighting for the world
  • Small improvements to satellite textures
  • Rain affected by wind and refinement of its behavior in general
  • Many reworked locations on Chernarus
  • Reworked ghillie (to be consistent with new tech)
  • Small bugfixes to some issues from 0.61
  • New ambient sounds

This is the first public version on unstable servers, it can contain new bugs and crashes. If you find some bugs/crashes let me know on our Feedback Tracker, we need to know about it. You can help us to solve game crash issues.Thank you! 

If you run into any problems with camera (movement of camera, zooming), delete your profile in documents (C:\Users\yourPCname\Documents\DayZ).


While you'll be waiting for the update to download, I also have the first part of our new Q&A video for you. This time with Adam Franců, amazing map designer! He will give you some new information and answer your questions from Twitter, Forum and Reddit.


And the last news. If you are active content creator you can join our white-listed Content Creator server.

As a small appreciation of our community of live streamers, YouTubers and other content creators, we're launching a passworded, whitelisted server for the 0.62 Experimental update where you can get a look at the new visual improvements in 0.62 without waiting in the Experimental server queue.

Everyone with an active channel on both YouTube and Twitch will be granted access on a "first to come, first to serve" basis, as we'd like to have both familiar names and small content creators on the list!

The server has 60 slots, and we'll be whitelisting 70 of you for now (to allow for a bit of an overflow during less frequented hours), with the important factor for whitelisting being that we're able to tell your channel is active. In short, that means you had at least one DayZ video uploaded over the past month, or streamed any game at least once during the past 7 days.

Occasionally, we may also have developers join the server, which may take up to additional 5 slots on the list, but we'll try to stay out during busy hours.

Apply here: https://goo.gl/forms/9Exb5VUwS9LN0Zna2

We'll let you know if you've been selected by email. The form will be closed after filling the capacity.

Where the hell is 0.63? We've been waiting for literally 11 minutes. Lazy scam devs!

Seriously though, I might give 0.62 a whirl tonight if I can get on. The creator whitelist idea is neat - perfect for pure testing as well. Keen to see the new changes.

      Hello guys,
      don't panic, it isn't time for 0.63 yet!
      But we need to do some tests so we moved these official Stable servers to Experimental branch:
      DayZ SG 4-292  DayZ AU 4-279 DayZ DE 4-215 DayZ DE 4-263 DayZ SE 4-047  DayZ SE 4-053 DayZ SE 4-049 DayZ BR 4-004  DayZ ATL 4-298 DayZ ATL 4-234 DayZ DAL 4-099 DayZ DAL 4-095 I just wanted to let you know. Have a nice day(z)!

      How long do we still need to wait before the 0.63 Update is released on the Experimental Branch? That's a question we get asked every day. While it's still hard to estimate exact release dates at this stage of development (we've learned our lesson about estimating dates), we at least wanted to provide an overview of the work that remains to be done before the release is a go.
      Before you start scrolling through the list, we strongly recommend that you take a peek at the detailed Status Report we posted on November 2018 last year - back then, we provided a list of 0.63 goals that served as a basis for this particular checklist. In general, that Status Report contains a pretty decent breakdown of our development plans all the way to the 1.0. release - go ahead and read it if you haven't done that yet!
      We'll do our best to go through this list twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays - even if it would mean that the state badges for each feature/system stay the same. With each update that has some new things marked as "Ready for Experimental", we'll also share that information on our social media channels! We hope this will make our development progress a bit more transparent, and hopefully, you'll also get at least some sort of estimate for the Experimental release.

      It's 5 months we have the last big update 0.62, 5 months! There are several games that start at 0.30 and only one or two years players have to wait until full version. This game is in early access for 4 years and we have nothing. Realy guys, I love this game so much, I played DayZ mod and DayZ from the first release, but this is enough. 5 months from 0.62 to 0.63 and i can bet that in the new update will be "only" new animations and twenty new caps and thats all. No base building, no more zombies, car bugs, etc. Guys, you've lost a lot of players and this is the last chance to do something good. Do it! Give us base building, more zombies, no bugs. Do it better, unlock game for modders and unlock Steam Workshop, moders can help you faster. Do not let us wait so long ... this is the best zombie survival game, but your attitude is bad. You are Bohemia Interactive - one of the biggest gaming company in Czech, do it better i know you can!
