DayZ Servers are down for a new update on console & PC

Developer Update - DayZ 1.11 Patch Notes have now been confirmed and can be found towards the bottom of this story.

Original Story - DayZ Survivors, get ready, a massive new update is dropping today for console and PC players.

As per usual, the update will take a couple of hours to deploy with server downtime impacting the platforms before the update is fully released.

Today's update, which is believed to be version 1.11, should also introduce a server wipe to the game.

For those who don't know, this means that characters, bases and all player progress on the servers will be reset completely. Right back to zero.

"The wipe is to optimize the update's stability and to get clean foundations to monitor changes made with previous economy updates," the developers at Bohemia Interactive explained to fans on Twitter.

Server Downtime


According to Bohemia Interactive, the new content for DayZ will appear once server downtime for the game has been completed.

The official times for this server disruption has also been outlined this morning (February 16th).

As per DayZ on Twitter:

"The PC servers are expected to go down at 12:00 CET (release at approx. 13:15 CET). The Console servers are expected to go down at 13:00 CET (release at approx. 15:00 CET)"

It's worth noting that sometimes with downtime (for all games) these processes can take slightly longer, so be prepared for some delays whils the new update is released.
