Dayz Standalone critical update released – Fixes dead state and adds new content


A new and unscheduled  critical update fix for DayZ Standalone has just been pushed to the live servers this evening to fix a major problem.

This update fixes a problems where players were finding themselves trapped in a “dead” state which is really not very helpful.

There’s also new gear added in this update including cowboy hats and a sewing kit among other things.
