Content[ | ]

New Terrain[ | ]

DayZ Frostline will be based on a group of islands just north of Japan and in far eastern Russia, featuring Volcanoes, Frozen lakes, and new assets such as boats and house recolorings. The map, named 'Sakhal', will be about 83 square kilometers, DayZ's smallest map.

Winter landscape[ | ]

One very important difference from Chernaurus is the snowy landscape. DayZ Frostline will feature varying amounts of snow depending on elevation and area alongside frosted trees and snow-covered rocks.

Harsher survival[ | ]

Some major features have been revamped due to the colder environment. DayZ frostline will feature frozen foods that can be warmed up using fireplaces (similar to drying clothes), Fishing will no longer be a viable option inland due to frozen lakes, and overall a colder climate will require fires to be started far more often.

Richer wilderness[ | ]

A few new animals have been added to Sakhal, the ones most featured are the rabbits, previously only available as an item, and the reindeer.

New gameplay mechanics[ | ]

One major gameplay mechanic featured is the fishing rework, wherein the player can no longer simply cast their line and wait but now the player must wait and watch for splashes when the player can then reel in their catch. New diseases have also been reported but what they are is uncertain.

Winter Cosmetics[ | ]

DayZ frostline has introduced a variety of new winter clothes, ranging from a wolf's head as a hat to simple winter mittens.

Pricing[ | ]

The DLC is expected to cost under $30 and will be available on all platforms including PS4/5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
