Overview of all Stress Test Changelogs

To prepare for the DayZ 0.63 experimental release, the developers are opening short stress tests to the public. If you want to participate and help them gather data, please read the information here carefully.
This overview will be updated every time a new changelog is shared by the developers.

The Stress Tests don’t give you the DayZ experience the developers are aiming for. They want to test┬áserver performance and stability. Features or content available internally might not appear in the Stress Tests.

Keep in mind a lot of new features or content that were added to the game are not mentioned in these changelogs. These changelogs are focused on fixing stability and server performance issues.
