A new update dropped for DayZ today, on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4, which brings some major improvements to the game. The biggest of these is a major player request, and that’s private servers on consoles. This will let players group together reliably on the console iteration of the game, and these servers are provided by Nitrado. However, an update this huge resulted in a server and character wipe, so players will, unfortunately, have to start over. This update offers new weapons, grenades, and a throwing mechanic, as well as improved medical gameplay. There are several issues that were also addressed, such as duping, server hopping, and frame-rate issues. A physical edition of the Xbox One and PS4 editions are also available now, courtesy of Sold Out Games.
