With the new announcement of Livonia, the newest DLC addition to DayZ, we are left with a couple questions about future content and updates. But for most, this is exciting news nonetheless. We have the first opportunity in DayZ (console) history to experience a new map and environment, and needless to say, the 89th MEU is going to be leading the charge!
So let's hear it folks; what do you think? Let us know if you think the devs are awesome for introducing the new DLC, or if you think they should've focused on getting what they already have up to par. And as always, stay safe; stay dangerous. We'll see you in Livonia!

Do you have what it takes to lead the 89th MEU MilSim Group to victory?
We're looking for DayZ players that are willing to learn the tactics and strategies of the 89th MEU, and commit to leading various-sized units; from a fireteam of four like-minded individuals, up to a platoon made up of three or more squads of 13 people each. No matter what you're interested in, we've got just the job for you!
If a leadership position is something that interests you, or you are just interested in joining the MilSim at an enlisted rank, don't hesitate to contact a recruiter ASAP! Or if you want more information on our officer candidate school and selection process, follow the link and read up before applying.
A couple basic guidelines to go off of before making your choice:
Greetings 89th MEU Members and Chernarus Survivors! With DayZ console update 1.04 just having been released not long ago, DayZ devs are already underway with the 1.05 update. What does this mean? Well, hopefully not what it meant for their last update. As of now, we are not expected to get another server wipe - but who really knows? However, with the release of 1.05, there will be a lot of cool and exciting additions to the game. You can expect to be able to safely escape the wrath of the undead with more style using the new clambering function, which allows you to climb walls roughly two-and-a-half meters tall. Also, there are about 5 new weapons being added, slowly progressing us closer to the PC weapons list.
For the full list of expected updates coming to DayZ this month, check out DayZ.com and start planning your new loadouts. I know I'll be in search of the new Glock that's supposedly hitting the streets. What about the rest of you? Drop a comment down below and let us know which of the 1.05 weapons you're looking forward to the most. We hope to see you on the field Survivors! And as always: stay safe; stay dangerous!
The 89th MEU Begins Testing Private Server for Potential Dedicated or Training Servers in the Near Future
That's right, you read that correctly! The 89th MEU is now in the works of possibly opening up a dedicated public server, or even a private training server sometime in the weeks or months to come. For now, "The 89th MEU Private Test Server" remains locked and accessible only by a few select individuals, with just a mere 10 player capacity. However, after testing is complete, and assuming the server runs as expected, the server will potentially be unlocked, and the capacity expanded. To what capacity is still unknown; however, if you wish to see a certain player capacity, or have other recommendations for moderation (such as day/night cycle) please drop us a comment and we'll be glad to take your input into consideration.
Additionally, it would be a big help to us if our fans would consider donating to our MilSim group. We run a tight team with a lot of opportunities, and so far, all of our funding comes from our dedicated members. The donations would go toward unit-related functions, activities, and gaming equipment with our devoted fans and members in mind; as you guys make what we do possible. You can access the donation tool, or discover more ways to support the team here! As always, the 89th MEU is grateful for any contributions made toward the team, and we value the input of our members and fans. Stay safe; stay dangerous!
The 89th MEU - CBIRF has had a recent string of successful operations in the Chernarus AO. The recent 1.04 update has created a couple setbacks - but nothing the 89th MEU can't adapt to and overcome! Our humanitarian operations, as such, have also been temporarily slowed. However, expect the team to be making our rounds to a neighborhood near you soon. We will be providing food, water, medicine, and safety to the regions we operate in, and will run citywide broadcasts at the time of our deployment. We look forward to working in cooperation with the many communities around Chernarus and providing aid to those in need. Stay safe; stay dangerous out there Survivors!
Okay so look, we don't have some fancy co-op or interview right now. We're working on it. But if anyone knows anything about the 89th MEU, currently the CBIRF detachment is the only active team, and you've probably met all of us already. However, I wanted to take the time to describe what it's like working with the 89th MEU CBIRF team for those who are still curious about the 89th MEU and our involvement in DayZ.
It started out, one sunny day, when we heard the news break for DayZ on console. Then, next thing we knew, angels descended from the sky with a scroll, prophesizing the creation of our Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Incident Response Force... Okay, perhaps that's a bit far fetched. However, the idea was so perfect, it might as well have been true. The 89th MEU, down on our luck after a long drought in recruit onboarding, and pressed for time, finally stumbled upon the answer to all of our problems: DayZ!
Once we tested the waters, and saw the endless possibilities (bugs aside) that the game had to offer, we couldn't resist. We immediately began filing our ranks back in line, and establishing a structure in preparation for a total revamp in our MilSim team. Since then, the 89th MEU CBIRF team has been freeing towns from local terrorist cells, wiping out the hordes of undead plaguing the lands, and helping those down on their luck with medical aid and provisions.
Most importantly, however, is that the 89th MEU is back in town, and ready to kick some more ass. Join us today and see what separates us from the rest. Stay safe; stay dangerous!
As most of you already know, the 1.04 update was released about 12 hours ago for the Xbox One and PS4. So far, things are running a lot smoother. New features include:
