The latest patch for Bohemia's DayZ is here; check out the patch notes.

Comments

A new patch is now available for DayZ, bringing with it a number of fixes and changes across console and PC. The patch notes, which were posted on the DayZ website, include fixes for crash scenarios and a problem that allowed infected to walk through doors on console.

In terms of changes, the console editions of DayZ now have increased audible range for assault rifles and sniper rifles, while the Eggsperimental Capsule has been temporarily disabled. Elsewhere, the patch reduces the damage to tools when building, repairing, or dismantling objects in a case.

The PC patch features a number of the same changes as on console, as well as PC-specific changes like a fix for bug that could cause the game to crash and require the player to restart. Developer Bohemia Interactive also recommended that players consider de-fragmenting their HDD after downloading big updates.
