1.6 Last Stand – New Dark Zone Areas


Update 1.6 has significantly increased the size of the Dark Zone. The new areas (DZ-07, DZ-08, and DZ-09) have been added to the North near Central Park.

The map above shows how densely packed the new areas are with Landmarks.

Dark Zone Comparison (New vs Old)


Catagory Old Dark Zone New DZ Expansion % Increase
City Blocks 84 +40 48%
Landmarks 13 +16 123%
Extraction Zones 8 +2 25%
Safe Houses 5 +2 40%
Checkpoints 13 +7 54%

The City Block comparison is misleading since it only does not count the total playable surface area (underground, street level, and above ground). The number of additional rooftops and underground areas added in the Northern Dark Zone is substantial. This effectively expands the playable area much more than the 40 blocks listed above.
