DayZ developers are working on an Experimental patch which will put an end to the ability to carry an infinite number of backpacks. The patch also adds a shotgun and hacksaw to loot spawners.
The experimental build is expected on Monday and a stable release is planned for January 24.
“We do not expect that this build will be quickly posted to stable branch as we anticipate at least one more update will occur to Experimental prior to being pushed to stable,” said Dean Hall. “Only a limited number of servers will be running this version, so be aware slots may be limited.
“Once we have confirmed this build is functioning correctly we will announce more information about the release to stable branch.”
