We are pleased to announce that the Open Beta for DayZ Livonia has arrived exclusively on PC. From October 31, 19:00 CET to November 4, 18:00 CET(*), all DayZ owners will be able to take a peek at Livonia, via DayZ Experimental, on Steam (**).
In addition to featuring the idyllic environment of Livonia, all upcoming platform content from the Update 1.06 will be available, featuring four new weapons, new magazines for your favorite rifles, fishing to outlive the harsh southern area of the terrain along with dozens of improvements and fixes.
During the Open Beta, all Experimental servers will run the Livonia terrain, with a total capacity of 1 560 players (60 per server instance).
As usual, we welcome all feedback; however, during the weekend, we will be focusing on the following areas:
- Terrain specific issues (e.g., misplaced buildings)
- General performance results on Livonia
- Loot distribution and access to these
- Issues with inventory, more particularly item swapping
- Survivability of the environment
About DayZ Livonia: Livonia is the brand-new DLC map for DayZ, allowing players to experience the hardcore survival hit in a whole new environment. Up to 60 players on a server will be tasked with a single goal: survive this new, unfamiliar land for as long as possible, by any means necessary.
(*) Actual content, dates, and times subject to change.
(**) DayZ Experimental is available to all DayZ owners, from the Steam Library.
(***) This Open Beta is PC exclusive and requires a Steam account with DayZ.
Note: It wont be possible to play on Experimental Community Servers, as the Livonia server files won't be provided during the Beta.
