I've included some early morning shots of 'Sanctuary,' the safe haven on the game map, provided some of the story and made a fresh list of some of the changes of improvements we've made recently to the game.
Sanctuary was created by a character named Dr. Ariel Rotem, an Austrian perinatologist that fled the holocaust during the second world war. Almost immediately after the war, when an unknown virus entered New York city through the immigration center on Ellis island, Dr. Ariel Rotem started to treat the wounded and sick and in doing so became a leader. More people came to him, and built their lives around him. The result, was Sanctuary.
One day, a band of Marines came roaring in looking for a safe place to stay. They were led by Captain CJ Hodges. They had with them another Marine, named Michael who they had just rescued from a horrendous fight (this is what takes place in the prologue). For some reason Michael survived his injuries with very almost no serum, the precious antidote to the virus, and he became a small miracle.
Captain CJ Hodges has to leave Sanctuary to help fight the infected hordes in Massachusetts and decides to leave Michael with Sanctuary so that he can heal up and help continue Sanctuary's fight against the infected in New York. Players, this is where you come in. You will play as Michael from the moment he wakes up for the first time until he has to jump into another terrible battle that pits the men and women of Sanctuary against an incredible number of infected.
We've made some great changes and improvements lately!
-Minimap doesn't clog up.
-No more collision problems with NPCS!
-Deer added onto the map. Shoot to kill and collect meat.
-Zombie dogs added.
-About fifteen new weapon types added.
-You now have the ability to both jog, and sprint.
-Navigating through the various windows and manipulating your inventory is now much easier.
-Main game quests are being added in, with another 30 'board' quests that you can do on your own, separate from the main game quests that lead you to the conclusion of the game episode.
-Melee weapons hit their targets, we removed the parameter where if your character is out of stamina from running his melee weapons wont work anymore. This made the game really frustrating.
-Dialogue trees added in that made up about 15 pages of script, all lines were done by professional voice actors.
