New Gameplay Plus Rich Free Rewards
Survivors learned from Scientia that there is an “Pureland” without infection on the other side of the sea, where there might be clues for helping people get rid of the infection once and for all. To search for that mysterious island, Survivors set sail to the five idiosyncratic Mutated Seas — Crystalthorn Sea, Labyrinth Sea, Rainbow Sea, Eroded Reef Sea, and Whirlpool Sea.
To survive on the Mutated Seas, the ship is an indispensable partner for Survivors, serving a variety of purposes. Survivors can steer the ship from the Cockpit, follow beacons, and navigate on the vast sea with the help of compass. Use the Salvage Racks to collect marine resources, and unexpected treasures might be salvaged and brought back to land for exchanging high-grade materials. The Construction Area allows Survivors to build and place furniture freely for creating their own sea shelter. And through fishing, Survivors can obtain rare fish resources from the deep sea.
The Mutated Seas breed powerful enemies — new marine Infected are coming! There are Infected corrupted by the sea, violent giant Infected Sharks, Infected Tentacles that can wrap the whole ship, and mysterious special Infected that wields big sickles and wears clerical clothing... For the last hope of mankind, Survivors must take up arms and fight to the end!
The physics engine is upgraded in the new version, rendering the ultrarealistic water surface effect. There are also free stuff like limited outfits, sprays, frames, and ship to claim. Come log in to the game and try out your sea survival!
