Bohemia Interactive has just released the biggest update of 2022 for the standalone version of DayZ. Patch 1.19 includes new and improved features, including new weapons, changed locations, a new vehicle, and a secret underground complex located on the Livonia map.
As the press release says, Livonia received a lot of attention in this update. The map features 163 km2 of Polish-speaking land and now offers many new locations and points of interest that complement the overgrown ruins and thriving wildlife that typically characterize it.
Update 1.19 also introduces new and modified vehicle simulations, which have fixed previous issues like flying cars and now offer a much more authentic driving experience. You can now use the parking brake on your car, carry spare wheels in special slots, and even honk at other players. Additionally, the team added the M1025; a drivable military vehicle that the community has been requesting for quite some time.
Additionally, patch 1.19 offers many new items and gadgets. First of all, it expands the arsenal of civilian weapons. For example, players can find a new sniper rifle, the SSG 82. There is also the BK-18; a break-action, single-shot shotgun. Also, you can get your hands on a new GPS receiver. The GPS receiver works seamlessly with the in-game map and makes navigating the terrain much more immersive and much easier.
