"Get out of here hoser!"

Still in development but potentially has potential.

Map size is reportedly 400 square km, which is huge for the level of detail shown.

Yeah I'm sick of the zombie gendre too, but at least when it comes to video games nobody's really done them justice so far.

Looks interesting. First person too. I enjoyed State of Decay but 3rd person always bugged me. I thought Dying Light did a pretty good job of the zombie thing.

There is also Survive the Night but it is developing very slowly.

And we as its creators don't feel ready to hear your annoyed jabber about it.

It looks like settlements (complete with NPC settlers) will be a major element of the game, if you choose to go that route.

I just hope that running a settlement bog you down with too much babysitting.

Certainly appears ambitious, I hope the small team of 10 or so people can pull it off.

Can Mulder and Scully be in the game since it takes place in Canada?

No, but I expect the zombies and raiders to constantly say "sorry" and mac and cheese to be a staple food.

An update.



It sure seems like they are really emphasizing depth and detail, I just hope there isn't too much tedious make-work ala RDR2.

Update all the things.





I really hope this pans out, if nothing else to make big development studios look bad, especially you Bethesda!
