DayZ 1.24 update fixes server crashes and other issues

There’s a new update out for DayZ, bringing the multiplayer sandbox survival title up to version 1.24 on consoles.

Available now across all platforms including PC (where the patch is listed as 1.10.153598) as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the developers at Bohemia Interactive have rolled out a list of fixes along with some general improvements.

These follow the game’s recent 1.10 patch which added new content and features to DayZ including items such as the splint, improvised shelter, pipe wrench, and M3S truck. You can catch a glimpse of some of these additions in the Dayz 1.10 trailer above.
