The vast and varied landscapes of this new Baltic backdrop bring a whole new atmosphere to DayZ’s survival experience. Set in the southern lush green forested region of Livonia, this 163 km2 of landlocked terrain provides a perfect idyllic backdrop for any survivor lost in the wilds. Venture south, chart new territory, avoid frenzied infected, encounter other survivors, build a base, and much more. Do whatever you can to survive for as long as possible.
Of course, survival is much easier – and less
thrilling – when you know the lay of the land, so many veterans of
Chernarus can once again get lost in unfamiliar terrain by braving the
post-apocalyptic wilds of Livonia. Navigation, however, won’t be the only
hurdle to overcome. Livonia, although picturesque, has limited supplies, and
survivors will have to learn to forage, hunt, and fish to avoid starving to
death – if they’re not first killed by the zombies, other survivors, or the
wilderness itself, that is.
Naturally, with a new wilderness comes new
wildlife, and Livonia is home to an array of fauna to live off. But watch out,
as players won’t be the only danger stalking this new hunting ground. The
forested southern region of the map is home to the Eurasian Brown Bear. These
formidable foes won’t take kindly to human-shaped threats, and can seriously
injure and kill with ease. Players wanting to get close – for… whatever
reason – should probably bring backup, or face deadly consequences.
But the new topography, limited resources, and
deadlier wildlife won’t be the only changes of pace for players. The temperate
late-summer climate brings frequent heavy rainfall and severe thunderstorms, so
expect to get wet… a lot! Protective gear and reliable shelter will be more
important than ever in this new rainy locale. Be sure to keep a keen lookout
for anything that can shield you from the erratic and relentless weather – it
might just save your life.
Livonia also drops the same time as the 1.06 update, which will apply to both DayZ maps (Chernarus and Livonia) and adds more weapons, attachments, fishing, bears, throwing improvements, and numerous other additions, fixes, and tweaks.
See you in Livonia, Survivor!
