DayZ Livonia Xbox One X (First Impression)

Upon spawning into Livonia for the first time, i am greeted with obscure and gloomy setting.

So what do i think of the Livonia DLC?

Bugs Bugs and more Bugs.
The game looks gorgeous in 4k with my Sony 75′ TV but that is about it.
Everything sooner or later becomes cruel in functioning in game.

Items disappear into your inventory.
Can’t pick up items (even when dropped).
Can’t load ammo into clips (cannot load clips either).
Can not eat foods or open cans.
Will not stay couched while aiming with some weapons.
Sometimes your item/equipment menu will not show up.
Items and things stay locked in place.
So many bugs but worst of all is when you unload an entire clip into a Zed with no effect while it is tearing you apart.
Yes, Zeds with GOD mode on.

If you don’t mind playing a cruel game with so many bugs then go for it, else i would wait, but knowing how unforgiving Bohemia Interactive is, you just might wait for a very long time.

Dec.6 2019 UPDATE:

Alright now. Livonia is way too brutally cruel.
Not saying i can’t survive, in fact i haven’t died yet but i have found myself dedicating way too much time just to be able to survive.
DayZ Livonia is entertaining and gives you a survival rush but things quickly turn into a burden and gets very repetitive, unforgiving and barely worth the time.

For example:
There are more Zeds now. I counted about 15 at one time in Charnarus but in Livonia there can get up 27 dead Zeds in the same area to the point where your Xbox One X crashes with so many on screen.

Just trying reach and use a water pump you must either patiently sneak and wait for an opportunity or clear out the surrounding area of Zeds in case you are spotted like one normally does.
Yes, it is wise to use an ax or some blunt weapon that isn’t loud which draw attention but sadly soon during or after the melee, another Zed spots you, then another and another no matter how many you kill.
So try filling up a jerry can with water which takes a while and these things keep popping up around you, often fighting 3 or 4 at a time.
So best thing for me to do is just use my firearm and clear out the area which drains your rare ammo.
That is another thing. Items and ammo are rare unless you search long hours for it.
Just trying to find a leather repair kit or spark plug through several towns can be very time consuming unless you are lucky.
Also, Danger is everywhere.
Zeds are all over the map, even in rural areas with a fast re-spawn rate and can amass to such a number of them that it would make the server or client system crash.
Then there are wolves (haven’t seen a bear yet) that howl when nearby which usually indicates they sense you. Just try running from them or use a vehicle to get away. They will follow you through half the map. Don’t believe it? When they spot you, drive very far away and wait there between 10 to 20 mins. The same wolves will find you. Just using your weapon scope or some binoculars you can seem them coming down the same road you just came from.
Worst yet, I found out the hard way that Wolves and Zeds ignore each other and focus on you instead.
Finally i locate the only gas station on the Livonia map (1 known so far using online map) and upon reaching it, i find you cannot draw any gas from the pumps. Is this a bug?
Add in the common thunder storms which bring the terrible cold and wet degrading health issue and you have yourself a nightmare of a game.

To wrap this up: Not a bad game if you like the challenge but so time consuming and i can’t afford so many hours with very little incentives.
I’ll stick with the Charnarus map for now.
