Beyond Death has a 10 x 10km (6.2² miles) map, inspired by rural Alabama and Georgia. With a mix of forests, meadows, fields, mountains, villages and coasts, every area is pleasant to visit, not only for its beautiful visuals, but for its natural sounds. There is particular emphasis on detail, making every true-to-life location a potential place to begin your story. For example, the beautiful landscapes, where you will walk, run, drive, hunt, farm and build will almost make you forget the state the world is in.
Exploration will lead to finding resources like shelter, food, weapons and transportation. Travel by foot, bicycle, car or truck and load your gear into the boot.
Our customized player stat system will help you stay aware of several factors like energy, water, food, weight, muscle volume and anything that may have direct impact on your character’s health, vision, strength and endurance. Furthermore, you will need to consume food or water depending on the intensity of your activities. For example, running will drain your energy must faster than walking. Variables are based on real life conditions, so if you lose too much muscle tissue, your melee attacks will deal less damage. Your carry-weight will also become affected. We have lots of other ideas in develop and will be include your ideas too!
Beyond Death features a building system which can be used in several situations depending on what you are looking for. It can be used to reinforce your home or build one from scratch, or even an entire encampment, with the ability to add furniture, lights and decoration. With your help, we might add even more possibilities like building bunkers, traps and other types of structures. Materials can be found everywhere; get wood from trees around you, metal from car carcasses or from a storage area.
Beyond Death is both single and multiplayer. Servers will have several options like creating a PVP or PVE session with, or without anti-griefing. We want to make each game fit player’s wishes.
From individual undead to massive fast-moving hordes, the threat is always a dynamic one. In addition of the threat of the undead still holding on to their former living past, the occasional horde will stampede through the environment, creating unpredictable and immediate dangers, so keep your head on a swivel! Besides the infected, wild predators will also test your will to live.
Beyond Death features a complete wildlife system with both predators and prey. They too are trying to survive and some can be domesticated. They can provide you with food and/or skin when cleaned. Farm animals can be found and caught near abandoned agricultural areas.
Farm animals found in nature can be tamed for breeding, giving you the ability to farm resources like eggs, milk, meat and skins. You can build outdoor enclosures, reproduce animals of the same species and feed them. But be careful, your livestock also need protecting from more than the undead. Moreover you will be able to grow and harvest crops from found seeds and use it as animal food or for your own consumption.
The crafting system is one of the most simple, and fun aspects of the game. Allowing you to become the master of your own universe. Each tool has a specific use; some for crafting, some for weapons, tools or repair. These tools are logically spread across the world and are critical for weapon creation and building shelter. We will keep adding objects that can be crafted during development, in such a way that players can really craft anything they can think of!
Electricity enables you to use lights and certain equipment for cooking. Generators can be built or found, but you will need to find gasoline to get them churning. Another way to have electricity is to take advantage of solar panels, which can be fully exploited with a combination of battery system to have energy all day long. You’ll want it at night!
Experience a fully dynamic day and night system that will present their own revelations and perils. The added immersive atmosphere changes the way you will play, especially at night.
The weather in Beyond Death isn’t just a simple background, it is an integral part of the gameplay and will influence your character’s warmth, hydration, stamina and energy.
As for the servers, customization will be part of the game in different aspects such as player’s character’s appearance, homes, and vehicles.
