Coming next week (May 27th to be precise) base DayZ and the Livonia DLC are merging into a single product. It’s just simpler to keep everything all in one place. Bonus, though, is that existing owners of the base game will get it for free. Noice! DayZ will also be on sale for the next week. So this is a great time to jump in.

Official Press Release

Enhancing DayZ’s Survival Experience by Merging the Base Game with the Livonia DLC

Prague, May 20th, 2024 – Bohemia Interactive is thrilled to announce that a significant evolution is coming to the world of DayZ on May 27th, thanks to the merging of the base game with the Livonia DLC. This ambitious change, released as Redux Update 1. 25, aims to redefine and further enrich the player experience by merging the content of the two products into a single and unified project. All current owners of the DayZ base game will receive the Livonia DLC for free.

The fusion of DayZ and Livonia marks an important step in the game’s development strategy, which has been designed to streamline DayZ’s portfolio while significantly enhancing the value it provides to players. Although the maps of the base game and Livonia will remain separate, they will now coexist under the roof of one unified product.

Available for $49.99 USD/€47.99 EUR/£39.99 GBP, this update represents an increase in price. It offers greater value, however, than purchasing the base game and the Livonia DLC separately. Furthermore, in a show of appreciation for our community’s ongoing support, all existing owners of the DayZ base game will receive the Livonia DLC at no additional cost.

We released a comprehensive experimental article and FAQ a month ago to prepare the DayZ community for the transition. This was done to ensure that all players are well-informed about the upcoming changes and can continue to enjoy DayZ without interruption. Additionally, as of today (May 20th), the Livonia DLC is no longer available to be purchased separately in order to streamline the integration and prevent any customer confusion.

To celebrate this event and offer new players an opportunity to join in, we are excited to announce an upcoming special discount on Steam in the Last Chance Sale. DayZ will be available at a reduced price from May 22nd to May 26th. Make sure you don’t miss out on this special opportunity to get Livonia for free!

We look forward to setting out on this exciting new chapter with our community, and are eager to hear your thoughts as we continue to build and improve upon the DayZ experience.

About Bohemia Interactive

Our story began with our first game, Arma: Cold War Assault, released back in 2001. Developed by just a handful of people, this PC-exclusive title became a massive success. It sold well over a million copies, received numerous industry awards, and was praised by critics and players alike. Since then, we’ve grown from a ragtag bunch of garage devs to an international family of over 400 professionals, working on Arma 3, Arma 4, Arma Reforger, DayZ, Ylands, Vigor, our proprietary Enfusion engine, and various other projects. Our ambition: to make games that act as platforms for people to explore, create, and connect.
