The game’s latest update brings the zombies that have terrorized the map for a month now as far west as they’ve ever been. While previous outbreaks have been in slightly smaller or more secluded locations, like Prison, last week’s outbreak in the TV Station moved them into more populated areas. Now that the zombies have arrived at Superstore, players are likely to run into at least a few of them every game.
One fun side effect of the zombies’ arrival at Superstore is that the location will now have slightly better loot. Superstore was already a popular drop spot, especially if you were looking for an exciting fight, and it’s likely to be even more contested now that the rewards are better.
According to the latest in-game report, which developer Raven Software released on Thursday, Verdansk has now reached 66% contamination. The report also mentions that players should head to the infected areas and clear as many zombies as possible to stop the infection from spreading. Based on how fast things are moving, it seems we only have a few more weeks before Verdansk is 100% infected. Once that happens, many players have speculated that the map could get destroyed in some kind of nuclear event.
