DayZ is slowly but surely coming back into the mainstream. Once a great game, DayZ fell from grace and has since righted the ship to make a return with continuous updates and post-launch content. DayZ was officially released back in 2018, however before that, it was in early access for almost five years. Developers of the game released an experimental update that adds a whole lot of content. It also fixed several bugs and tweaked already existing content. Some changes to the Launcher were also made. The update is only available for PC players.

The Experimental Update 1.08 added the Sporter 22 along with several attachments. We can also equip a lighter and a frying pan. Multiple additions to the Chernarus map were made, and we now have two new locations: a Saint Roman ski resort and SKVSCh Biathlon Arena. Multiple new car wrecks can also be seen in Chernarus. You can now finally remove dead bodies from vehicles, and your character has a new out of breath sound.

Below you can see all the new content added to the game, you can read the complete patch notes here.
