By   /   Jan 6, 2014

We know that the DayZ Standalone version has managed to grab attention by selling over 800k units, but the developer Bohemia Interactive will continue to add features to it. New DayZ Standalone Update version 0.30.113953 has been released for the Game.

The update is expected to take care of certain issues like server crashes and delays in item manipulation along with adding new bits to the game like a time based dead player cleanup, a balancing of player spawns and miniscule things like the ability to open cans with M9130 Bayonet.
