Walpurgis Night 2024

Posted on April 16th, 2024 04:17 AM EST

Dear Survivors,
As the warmth of spring envelops us, let us kindle the spirit of the season with the bonfires of Walpurgis. Staying true to our commitment in supporting in-game events this year, we're happy to announce the return of the annual Walpurgis event.
While seasoned veterans are likely well acquainted with this event, newcomers to the game may benefit from a quick overview.

The Night of the Witches (known as ńĆarodejnice in Czech) is a celebration spanning April 30th and May 1st. Originating from ancient pagan rites, Walpurgis Night originally symbolized the renewal of nature with the onset of spring. Over time, it evolved into a Christianized festival honoring Saint Walpurga, renowned for her protection against supernatural forces, including witchcraft. In modern times, bonfires illuminate the night skies in some parts of Germany as people joyously dance around Maypoles, while Finland and Sweden embrace the outdoors with picnics and lively gatherings.

Echoing its real-world counterpart, the DayZ Walpurgis Night event promises an atmospheric experience, with bonfires being lit up across the maps. These fiery beacons may serve as both sanctuaries, offering warmth and respite, or potential traps, leaving you exposed to the watchful eyes of other unfriendly survivors.
Following the elaborate mechanics of previous events like the healing bolts during Valentine's, we've opted to keep this simple. Here's the list of items you can find at the bonfires:

  • Cauldron
  • Witch Hat
  • Witch Hood
  • Birch Broom
  • Crooked Nose
  • The infected witch and the infected firefighters
So, arm yourself once more with pitchforks, fire-spewing brooms, and the iconic witch hoods as you venture into both Chernarus and Livonia. The event will start on the 16th of April and end on the 5th of May across all platforms and official servers.
Stay warm, survivors.
Best regards,
