We recognized the shortcomings and flaws of the original version. Having spent the last twelve months rebuilding the game from scratch. with enhanced UI and functionality, a new combat system with tactical depth. A node-based travel system, improved hunting and scavenging. Plus a robust crafting system. We are grateful for all the interest and feedback we received from the fans.
