The open-world MMO survival game is set in a post-pandemic America. Here, flesh-hungry infected roam, and survivors kill each other for food, guns, and cars. In the game, you wake up alone “in a world you don’t remember anymore” and set off in search of answers and gather resources you need to survive.
To survive you will use realistic weapons against the infected and other players. You have a temperature gauge, thirst meter and more to keep track of your mortality as you drive around and explore the world.
