DayZ 1.20 Update: Release Date, Leaks & Everything We Know So Far

Although DayZ just recently received its 1.19 update, many players are wondering whether we'll be receiving a 1.20 update before the end of 2022. While there isn't any confirmed information on its release date or content, we do have some ideas on what to expect and when.

So below we will be discussing the possible release date, features, and everything else we expect for the 1.20 update of DayZ. Read on for everything you need to know!

DayZ - Update 1.20 Release Date

As mentioned previously, we don't have an exact date nailed down for the 1,20 update of DayZ, but we can take a guess based on the previous release schedules. This leads us to believe that the 1.20 update will roll out in late November or early December 2022.

This release date speculation is based on the previous update's release windows in 2021, where there were five updates (1.11 through to 1.15), and the last one was released in November of 2021. We were also promised five updates this year and have only received four so far, making it likely that 1.20 would be on its way. 

However, many fans are skeptical as most updates were teased by the developers beforehand, with hints dropped on their social media and hype being built for each update. But since we can't confirm or deny it just yet, we'll just have to wait and see. 

DayZ - Update 1.20 Features

When it comes to features, there are tons we can speculate on based on previous years' updates and what the community surrounding DayZ has been asking for. The end of 2021 saw the AUX (AUG) and LeMas (Famas) added to the game, which was accompanied by various bug fixes and adjustments to the loot economy.

The scope would probably be similar if update 1.20 was released in 2022 because we might see the return of weapons that players have been requesting as well as some general changes made to the game.

As fans enjoyed them in the past, the Red 9 pistol (Mauser c96), the MP-133, or the RAK-MP are potential weapons that might return. There may also be many minor additions, such as new clothing or items. However, rather than focusing on the expansion, update 1.20 may instead be aimed at improving DayZ as a whole.

For now, that's all we know about the possible DayZ 1.20 update. Be sure to check back here soon once more is known and the update is released, as we'll be breaking that down in full detail and get you up to speed.
