The DayZ Xbox One Patch Notes for April 25th, 2019 have been revealed with a number of fixes and tweaks to the experience. This is of course the console version of the massive open world zombie survival game. Players battle against each other and zombies in a large persistent world. The patch notes can be found below, note that things tend to change over time. Restarting the game/console may be necessary and an update will need to be applied.

Known Issues
This update is not addressing the issue with some player characters not being saved properly. This is currently still being investigated by the development team. Players affected by this issue will experience character inventory rollbacks and these rollbacks are a preventative measure introduced to prevent characters from being deleted completely, or locked from playing.
