DayZ's highly anticipated Update 1.08 went live yesterday on all platforms. The development of this update took more time than expected, but the developers at Bohemia Interactive are sure that they can still meet the DayZ 2020 roadmap. The update adds new locations, weapons, and some smaller additions. A couple of gameplay mechanics have been changed, and several bugs are resolved.

The updated finally finished the previously teased locations including The Saint Roman Ski Resort and the Biathlon Arena. The two places can be visited in the north-western part of South Zagoria. Chernarus also went through some tweaks, as several static vehicle wrecks were added to the area. The update also brings back the Sporter 22 rifle. It’s a semi-auto rifle that players can equip a hunting scope with 15 or 30 round magazine. Long-range firefights should also be much easier now, as the update reworked how 'Sway' and 'Hold Breath' behaviors work in the game.

As mentioned above, the update also added a couple of small things. Frying pans are back and a new disposable lighter is available. Previous cooking slots are replaced with generic cooking slots, which will also let you cook individual food. The update changed the destruction of fences and watchtowers. Tents are also now completely destructible. You can learn more about it over here.
