Update 1.19 for DayZ, otherwise known as Secrets of Livonia, is now live on all platforms. This hefty patch brings a ton of fundamental changes and new features, including a new vehicle, automatic transmission, and a GPS receiver, among others.

The M1025 has been added in Update 1.19. This lightly armored four-wheel drive monster is the first drivable military vehicle in DayZ. It features an automatic transmission that lets players maneuver this thing with ease, so that they can focus more on what’s on the road. Since the public beta, developer Bohemia Interactive has been hard at work in making sure that vehicles are easier and smoother to drive than before.

Aside from the new vehicle, those with the Livonia DLC will have lots to explore in this update. That’s because the development company added plenty of assets, such as sawmills, villages, quarries, and amusement camps.

Also, players are now less likely to get lost in DayZ, thanks to the addition of the GPS Receiver.
