Summary of DayZ Frostline

Here is a summary of the DayZ Frostline expansion DLC:

1. Map: Frostline is primarily a new map called Sakhal, an untouched archipelago with diverse environments inspired by the Kumchetka Peninsula of far east Russia.
2. Survival Mechanics: Introduces new survival mechanics including items, diseases, new wildlife, unique structures, and snowfall.
3. Climate: Late winter setting with temperatures dropping as low as -30 degrees Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit), offering a brutal survival experience if temperatures are the same as Kumchetka Peninsula.
4. Terrain: Varied terrain from lush forests, rolling grasslands, rugged coastlines, to bleak tundras, vast mountain ranges, and volcanic activity(or hazards related to volcanic activity).
5. Size: Sakhal is approximately 83km², larger than Namalsk's landmass(not including ice sheets), with similarities in survival mechanics.
6. Points of Interest: Littered with frozen lakes, a giant (inactive?)volcano, villages, and diverse landmarks, offering exploration opportunities. It is modelled from Tanoa and molded into an icey landscape.
7. Lore: Sakhal was rumored to be a safe haven but turned out to be as dangerous as other locations(Chernarus and Livonia), with harsh cold as an additional challenge.
8. Release Details: Scheduled for release with update 1.26 in the last three months of 2024, available on all platforms for around $30 as an expansion DLC.
9. Availability: Not available for preorder but can be wishlisted on Steam: https://bit.ly/3Qzz0Ye
10. Compatibility: Requires the base game, included in future DayZ bundles, with Chernarus and Livonia remaining pretty much unchanged.
11. Exploration: Promises for players to "explore innovative structures and landmarks teeming with secrets", enhancing the gameplay experience.
12. Teasers: Revealed teaser images and video slices hinting at new features including wildlife (wolves, deer, possibly bears and Siberian tigers(speculation)), enhanced fishing mechanics(ice fishing?), new gear (ice axe, winter hat, goggles, gloves, wolf hat), and maybe improved skybox technology(could be a different skybox).

The release of Frostline is set for Q4 2024, paired with our game update 1.26.

2. Will it be on consoles?
Yes, it will be available on all platforms: PC, Xbox and PlayStation.

3. What is the price of the new DayZ DLC?
There is no definitive for this currently, but it should be less than $30

4. DayZ 2 When?
As of now, we have no plans for a DayZ sequel. Our team is dedicated to refining, evolving, and adding depth to the current DayZ experience.

5. Pre orders or early access?
There are currently no plans for pre-orders or early access.

6. Will there be a special bundle offer for purchasing the new DLC alongside the base game?

7. Where is the Frostline DLC set in?
It is set in a rugged and forgotten volcanic archipelago in the far east, named Sakhal.

8. How large is Sakhal, and how does it compare to the original map?
Encompassing 83 km² of land, excluding the water surrounding the island, this is the most compact map our team has developed. Nonetheless, it aims to offer increased level of interaction, intriguing point of interests, and gameplay mechanics that necessitate a more cautious pace of movement to contend with the challenging climate.

9. Is Sakhal ported from Arma 3 Tanoa? Why?
Yes. Developing a brand-new landscape is a time-intensive process. By having the general landscape features— such as islands and hills—already defined, we were able to allocate our attention to refining other environmental ental elements within the given timeline. This approach ensured that the end product would be a unique map, with no compromise on detail or quality.

10. How is this DLC deviate from the base game?
The gameplay is designed to be a more severe and critical iteration of DayZ, featuring complex mechanics that not only present substantial challenges but also offer a fresh experience to keep even veteran players engaged.

11. Is Sakhal based on a real life location, much like all other official maps in DayZ?
Unlike previous official maps, Sakhal isn't based on a single real-life location; however, it is heavily inspired by the Kamchatka Peninsula in the easternmost part of Russia.

12. How does the DLC integrate with the existing DayZ world? Is it a seamless transition? How does the Frostline enhance the storytelling or lore of the DayZ universe?
As opposed to its mainland counterparts, Chernarus and Livonia, Sakhal was rumored to be a safe haven, thanks to its isolation in the Far East and disconnection from the wider world. Enticed by its status as a refuge, survivors who arrived on the island were tragically uninformed about the true nature of Sakhal, a forgotten archipelago with ice in its vein and fire in its heart. Far from being a sanctuary, the island presented a perilous journey that was more dangerous than any they had endured before.

13. Will the DLC include new assets, items?
Players can look forward to an array of winter cosmetics designed to combat the cold, as well as diverse wilderness environments peppered with a variety of wildlife. The map will also enrich the DayZ experience with new buildings, distinct areas, and intriguing points of interest that are in harmony with the overall theme.

14. Are there any plans for DLC-exclusive events or community challenges?
No plans for now. But we'd love to collaborate with community for events in the near future on Sakhal.

15. Can we expect any changes or additions to the base game with the DLC?
There will be no changes to the base . Chernarus and Livonia will stay the same aside from somegame minimal changes with 1.26.
