Time to move to a new region of a harsh post-apocalyptic world that covers an area of 163 square kilometers and heavily covered in lush green forest, a landscape that is ideal to get lost into and find new survival experience.

When you have wilderness surrounding, it is pretty natural to come across various wildlife creatures but be very weary of deadly Eurasian Brown Bear, exclusive to Livonia that can severely injure or even kill you upon contact.

Since there are limited supplies out there for scavenging, it would be wise to go hunting if you are not willing to die starving. Engage in fishing to pass time or just to get food even though often time you will only catch junk.

Due to late-summer climate change, you can expect recurrent rainfall, which you need to be on a lookout for other than fellow survivors and zombies. So, try finding protective gear and shelter within remnants of an abandoned society.

DayZ: Livonia DLC coming along with update 1.06 for PC and consoles, bringing bug fixes, quality of improvements and more for both maps. Plus, usage of mouse and keyboard are now fully supported for players on PS4 and Xbox.

DayZ Beta Live Now

After spending half a decade, DayZ is about to leave Early Access on Steam and Beta goes live now as 1.0 version.

Developer/publisher Bohemia Interactive started their journey of open world multiplayer survival game DayZ that was built as a mod for Arma 2 in 2012. It was launched via Early Access on Steam for PC back in 2013 as they were running alpha testing.

After spending half a decade in that phase for slow development progress, the studio is finally launched an experimental "beta" version as 1.0 release after making an announcement earlier in their official blog and it is available for public.

Initially, the mod's creator, Dean Hall came to work for Bohemia to work on the Arma franchise when he took a leave from New Zealand army. He was inspired from a real-life experience of a training exercise that led him to create zombie survival game.

With permission from the company, Hall created the DayZ mod for Arma 2 and then released it as a free download. People simply loved it and within months, have amassed a staggering number of over half a million players.

This made Bohemia Interactive to seriously consider the mod to turn it into a stand-alone game. When Valve's online distribution platform Steam unleashed the second wave of big Early Access titles, it came out selling a million copies in just four weeks.

Although they targeted to release a beta version of the game before the end of 2014, the team of development has struggled to deliver what they promised to their fans. They only managed to revamp the game engine and expanded Chernarus map.

The problem was, without fixing the already existing issues and fixing bugs, the studio was busy adding additional features to it. Meanwhile, Hall moved on with founding his own studio and director Brian Hicks left the project on early 2018.

However, rest of the team finally pulled it off by releasing the experimental beta build and came to a decision of preparing a stable 1.0 version with all available content by January 2019 by putting a stop to their usual feature developing practice.

Since their core technology development is done for, Bohemia Interactive can now center their focus on polishing and making balance tweaks. Some of you may or may not have noticed some of the fixed issues in the past week already if you are still playing.

Given the overall situation, they made the right call of prioritizing their primary promise to the already existing 1 million players from the early days who believed in them and bought an unfinished game and to many more to come in future.

In an update on their development Blog in November 2017, the company expressed their intent of bringing the title to Microsoft's console. PS4 version of the game however is still on their planned checklist but is getting delayed because of Sony does not simply having anything equivalent of an Early Access program to run tests on it. Regular supply run and fighting hostilities to survive in groups during multiplayer or going solo is the main theme that it follows.

DayZ initially started as a standalone mod for military simulation game Arma 2 by Bohemia Interactive, eventually becomes an open world survival game. You play as a character that discovers him on a beach with some cloths, flare and a rag in a world where everyone is on a constant struggle for survival. Aside from scavenging for food to sustain yourself and water to quench your thirst, you've got to keep an eye for threat of zombies. If dead, a player has to start over from the beach.

DayZ Leaving Early Access in 2018

Developer Bohemia Interactive's open world survival video game DayZ has been in Early Access on Steam from 2013 and it has actually helped shape the popular Battle Royale game mode these days. For four years it is on early alpha testing and now, finally the game is leaving Steam Early Access on 2018. That means, DayZ will see a full-game release next year and Bohemia also confirmed that the game will also see its console release on the same year.

Although the developers expected to ship the game back in 2015 but couldn't make it but looks like they mean serious business this time. DayZ's Early Access period is not only one of the longest in the gaming history but also one of the most exhausting too. However, through a recent Blog Post, they have made known that since 2017 is an impossible target to reach, they will accomplish the goal next year.

DayZ Leaving Early Access in 2018

DayZ was meant to be for PC in the beginning but now we know that Bohemia is thinking of entering the world of consoles too, which by the way is a great initiative for the game. Initially, the game will be ported to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but as the PS4 version still needs work to be done, we still have to wait for some solid dates on that as Bohemia Interactive works on fixing that in the mean time.

Considering another open world survival game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds heading to Xbox One, these steps are pretty huge for the studio. While the Beta and update 0.63 will turn into version 1.0 or a full game, it surely will not be the final product. Because, they are being realistic here and they simply lack the support they need for it right now.

The fast-paced gameplay and the thrill of survival are the key-elements which got the players hooked to DayZ. This experience comes in effect after hours of playing but on the other hand, modern day phenomenon like Fortnite or PUBG will make your heart racing with that feeling in a much shorter time. Nevertheless, DayZ is a game of its own right and it's nice that Bohemia is finally getting there. Now it sure is the time to get hyped for the community of gamers who are a fan of the game.
