Being a zombie-horror recreation, gamers would anticipate the sport to, as a substitute, lean closely into its horror features. It does supply the night time and day cycle the place zombies flip extra aggressive after darkish, nonetheless.
The sequel might actually outline itself by specializing in its horror parts, considerably enhancing the expertise. Though the motion within the first recreation helped stability issues out, it simply turned extra outstanding by the top. The horror part of the primary recreation is proof the builders understand how to do this style.
8 Need: Greater Map
The primary recreation’s map was set within the metropolis of Harran, which is fairly common measurement evaluating it to different open-world video games. The map is larger now than it was, because of Techland’s post-launch dedication with a bunch of DLC that takes gamers to the outskirts.
Within the sequel, having a much bigger map can assist out each facet of the sport, from rising the typical playtime to having extra issues to do within the metropolis. It feels higher realizing that the map measurement offers extra time to discover. Gamers have been asking about making town itself extra participating, and that may be executed with a big map.
7 Do not Need: Clunky Crafting System
Complaints in regards to the first recreation revolve round its clunky crafting system and weapons mods. Streamlining these options would bend the educational curve for gamers. The reason is is that it takes gamers out of the sport. Going from menu to menu makes it seem to be a chore.
By making all of it one motion or centralizing crafting to at least one place, and permitting gamers to change forwards and backwards, gamers will spend extra time in-game and fewer time navigating the menu.

Having a gun or rifle takes away from the difficult survival facet, even when it offers gamers respiration room.
