DayZ – Update 1.04 erscheint heute, Patch Notes verfügbar (Update)

Gespannt warten PS4 und Xbox One Spieler auf den Patch 1.04 für ‚DayZ‘, der ein paar interessante Neuerungen mit sich bringt. Die Veröffentlichung könnte nun kurz bevorstehen.

Wie Entwickler Bohemia Interactive auf Twitter mitteilt, finden aktuell noch Wartungsarbeiten an den PS4 und Xbox One Servern statt. Diese könnten ein Vorbote auf den Patch 1.04 sein, der dann unmittelbar danach oder in den kommenden Tagen folgt. Anfang der Woche war man damit noch etwas zurückhaltend, da es zu Verzögerungen beim Submission-Prozess kam, der einen Release des Updates in dieser Woche nicht mehr garantieren konnte. Welche Neuerungen damit anstehen, verrät man noch einmal in Detail weiter unten:

Das Update zielt auf einen kompletten Server- und Character Wipe ab, ebenso möchte man dann private Lobbies anbieten. Zudem arbeitet man stets an der Performance und versucht so viele Fehler wie möglich zu beheben. Dazu gehört:

  • Erweitertes Gesundheitssystem – Wir haben es in 1.04 verbessert und werden den Ausgleich fortsetzen. Gegenwärtig werden wir uns jedoch nicht dazu verpflichten, ein komplexes medizinisches / verletzungsbedingtes Gameplay zu implementieren – obwohl dies von vielen Hardcore-Spielern gewünscht wird, bemühen wir uns immer noch, der Mehrheit der Spieler die Komplexität des bestehenden Systems vollständig zu erklären. In Zukunft arbeiten wir an einer guten Balance zwischen Authentizität und Zugänglichkeit.
  • Neue Inhalte (Waffen, Autos usw.) – Wie ihr wisst, haben wir einige davon bereits hinzugefügt. Weitere werden folgen, aber denkt daran, dass es davon abhängt, wie schnell wir die diesjährigen Ziele erreichen können.
  • Modding-Unterstützung – Wir werden die Benutzererfahrung sowohl für Modder als auch für Spieler verbessern. Zum Beispiel werden wir bald Unterstützung für das Animationstool bringen.
  • Stabiles Basisgebäude – Ein großer Teil davon ist die Frage des Ausgleichs und eines unserer Hauptziele für das Jahr.

Weitere Infos zu DayZ und dem Patch 1.04 werden in Kürze erwartet.

Update: Bohemia Interactive hat bestätigt, dass das Update 1.04 die Zertifizierung erfolgreich durchlaufen hat und in der nächsten Woche ausgeliefert wird.
