DayZ updated to stop crashes on PlayStation 4

A week ago, and more than twenty after the release of the patch, Bohemia Interactive admitted that they had broken  DayZ on PlayStation 4 with the release of the 1.05 update.

We are aware of the crashes happening on PlayStation 4 since the release of the update 1.05, and currently working on resolving them. We haven’t found the roots of these GPU related crashes yet. It appears, they have multiple causes and there are no reliable reproduction steps, at this point.

They have now announced a new fix that should be rolling out to PlayStation 4 players that will hopefully sort some of the problems.

UPDATE:

We released an update that aims to mitigate the crashes affecting some PlayStation 4 players.

Tweaked

  • Memory distribution on PS4

Changed

  • Updated the texture streaming system to be more resilient against texture allocation failures
  • Applied compression to several textures

The console update for 1.05 went live on October 3rd, you can read the notes by expanding the section below.
