We can control the re-spawn of the creatures, alter the environmental cycles or the appearance zones, among many other options that allow us to modify the values that mark the difficulty of the game. Multiplayer, on the other hand, also offers the same customization, but we will have to adapt according to the game server we choose, either PvP (Player vs. Player) or PvE (Player vs. Environment).

The hero is a secret agent who is stationed in a dangerous area contaminated by a virus. There the zombies are at large, and they have terrified the few human beings who survive as best they can in a devastated area which, even before the undead holocaust, seems to us to be marginal and dangerous.
