Update 1.11 offers survivors a chance at a clean slate and a better overall experience in DayZ.

Today marks the arrival of Update 1.11 in DayZ, which brings significant stability improvements to the game. As the first major update of 2021, Update 1.11 also comes with an official server and character progression wipe, making now the best time to start fresh in DayZ.

Stability improvements in Update 1.11 include changes to zombie behavior, vehicle interaction, damage triggers, horticulture, and even sea fishing. The update also improves server capacity and stability. Modders will be pleased to hear that the update features major changes to the engine script, allowing the game to load more mods than ever before. You can read more about Update 1.11 on the DayZ website.

As for the complete server wipe, developer Bohemia Interactive recently explained on Twitter that the wipe is intended to “optimize the update’s stability and to get clean foundations to monitor changes made with previous economy updates.”

Aside from fixes, the update also introduces a new bonus weapon to the game. Players can find the SVAL rifle at helicopter crash sites around Chernarus and Livonia. Like the VSS, the SVAL uses 9x39mm ammo, which is now available in 20-round magazines for both weapons.

DayZ is a gritty, authentic, open-world survival horror hybrid-MMO game, in which you follow a single goal: to survive in the harsh post-apocalyptic landscape as long as they can. There are no superficial tips, waypoints, built in tutorials or help given to players. Every decision matters, there are no save games, no extra lives, every mistake can be lethal. If you fail, you lose everything and you need to play again from the beginning with nothing but your wits, and your two hands. Fight the hostile environment, where every other player can be friend or foe and nothing can be taken for granted. This is DayZ, this is your story.
