While a little bit smaller than some of the previous patches, DayZ's Update 1.08 has now arrived with a bunch of new additions and tweaks. It brings with it a brand new hunting rifle by the name of Sporter 22, a whole host of improvements to the base building and destruction mechanics, as well as couple of new additions like ovens and canopy tents to mess around with.

You can get a little bit of a sneak peek at what these things look like in-game through the recently posted teaser trailer. Have a gander, it's a fairly short one:

Naturally, the update has also brought in an assortment of bug fixes and balance changes, including tweaks to how your weapon sways while holding your breath. There's far too much to cover in brief, so if you're curious about all the details, you should check out the full patch notes.

As for DayZ itself, it's also worth mentioning that it's currently 40% off as a part of the Steam Summer Sale. So if you ever wanted to dive in, or rope in a friend, this might be a good time to do so. Have fun!
