Even though the DayZ standalone game is in the works, the community must be extremely pleased to see that the developers still care about the DayZ mod that made history in the world of PC gaming. As a proof to that we have a brand new DayZ update, 188.8.131.52, one that introduces a bunch of great new features to the game, as well as fixes and updates.
Among the new things – because these are always the most interesting ones, the new version of DayZ comes with brand new weapons (9 of them), two new vehicles and things that make the game even more realistic, like the option to get infected by drinking unboiled water, uncooked food and much more.
On the official DayZ forums, there’s the complete list of changes brought in by the 184.108.40.206 update, and you can see below the new additions. For the complete list and to download the new version, head over to the forums!
