7 Days to Die | How to update to a Beta version

Please note that experimental updates usually require world wipes. If you want to try one out without losing your world you can just change the "GameName" value in your config file which will keep your old world but generate a new one on reboot, otherwise you can use the reset world button.

  1. Choose the update you want on your pc by right clicking on the game, selecting properties and going to the betas tab(in this example we are going to choose latest_experimental)7_days_to_die_beta_update_8.png

  9. After the server has restarted, if you had a world in Alpha 18 it should convert to Alpha 19 (but we always recommend a new world) if you do not have an existing world you will need to wait for the server to generate a world which can take some time depending on your world size
