DayZ update 1.22 is all about bags and bug fixes

dayz update 1.22 patch notes

Developer Bohemia Interactive have released DayZ update 1.22 (experimental) for both Xbox and PC. The free patch is available to download now, introducing new content to the game, as well as a plenty of bug fixes and refinements.

Highlights of DayZ update 1.22 include a range of new bag and backpack options, giving players more storage options than before. Another big change hidden in the patch notes is how the game handles melee combat which should now feel more balanced with clothing items offering more protection.

This is the latest in a long series of free DayZ updates since the standalone zombie survival sim launched several years ago. There is no information on when this latest patch will come to PlayStation systems though we imagine it isn’t too far away.
