Fortunately, we have the answers for you. Below, we delve into the details of the upcoming DayZ server wipe and explain what it means for your characters moving forward. So, without further delay, let's dive right in.

Latest DayZ Wipe News

Below is an overview of all the latest DayZ news, including leaks, teasers, DLCs, and, of course, server wipes.

27 May 2025 - Frostline DLC Incoming

The newly announced Frostline DLC expansion for DayZ is set to arrive in the Fall of 2024. This expansion will take full advantage of the updates coming with the 1.25 update, which will take effect after the server wipe is concluded. Be sure to check out more details of the new DLC here.

When is the Next DayZ Wipe Coming?

According to the official developer forum from Bohemia Interactive, the next server wipe for DayZ is scheduled to begin on May 27, 2024, alongside the 1.25 update. This wipe will affect both the Chernarus and Livonia maps across all platforms, aimed at improving stability, which is a common reason for server wipes in many games.

One significant detail highlighted in this update is that your character and progress will remain intact despite the wipe, so all your hard-earned grinding won't be lost. While it’s not yet clear how this will affect structures and weapons, the game's economy will be reset, meaning items and non-living structures are likely to be wiped.

What to Expect with the Latest DayZ Wipe

Wipes usually accompany major game updates. As mentioned, this wipe will coincide with the 1.25 update. While it won't impact players' characters, it will reset almost everything else. This update will likely help developers avoid glitches and coding issues during these substantial gameplay changes, especially as they prepare for the release of the Frostline DLC which will be introduced along with all the game's performance and quality improvements after the wipe has concluded.
