As you explore the city, scavenging for resources and defending yourself against The Afflicted. You will uncover poignant insights into the lives of individual citizens of Eden, both through the environment itself and discoverable data logs. So search Eden for over 200 unique pieces of loot and resources. All ranging from food to building materials and hi-tech weapons and upgrades. While you give yourself the best possible chance of survival. The city, though, isn’t just an environment to survive from. It’s blood covered environments reveal the depths to which the city has been lost.
