To counter the zombie threat, the characters will have a wide arsenal of weapons, as well as the ability to customize them with a new system. Of course, they will also have hand-to-hand combat items at their disposal, such as baseball bats, knives, and katanas, among others. An interesting novelty is the Madness ability, which is activated when attacked by zombies and allows you to dodge hordes of infected for a short time. Not all enemies will be the same, and we will encounter different varieties of them, each with its own mutations and behaviors.
