Get out of the town safety to explore new areas and gather items and resources
The city surroundings overflow with resources and items you can gather and bring back to the city. This is central for you to progress, however, be careful the neighbors are not super friendly !
Join on your favorite platform (PC or mobile at launch) and play with any other survivor (groups of 4 max in this mode) :
Gather natural resources
Fight the monsters you encounter
Manage your inventory intelligently
If you can't survive, your loot will be lost, and you'll need to start that adventure again. If you can though, you'll bring back home plenty of valuable loot that you can craft into useful items.
Manage your inventory intelligently, prioritize what you need to craft the pieces you want in the city or what you can sell. Crafting is the key to unlocking better gear and weapons that let you progress and explore ever more challenging areas.
