'Undying' Early Access Update Adds Endless Survival Mode and Zombie Hordes - Trailer

by Rainier on Nov. 24, 2021 @ 1:38 p.m. PST

Undying is a survival game where players take control of Anling whose goal is to find somewhere safe for her son Cody to live on before she is turned by her infection.

Infected by a zombie bite, Anling's days are numbered. She must now fight to survive, not for herself but her young son, Cody. Ensure Cody's survival in this zombie infested world by protecting him, searching for safety, and teaching him valuable skills, at any cost. Even if it means giving in to her new zombie urges.

Limited resources must be managed in order to slow down Anling’s infection while also making sure both Anling and Cody don’t starve from hunger or thirst. In order to be more efficient and to help Cody in the future, players can pass on skills that Anling has learned over to Cody. These skills can be in combat as well as general survival skill such as cooking and crafting.

A perfect balance of managing your days looking for resources and increasing Cody’s skill set will be needed in order to survive the long journey.

Today’s major Early Access update (Steam / Epic Games Store) brings a host of new features and content to the game as we head into Thanksgiving weekend in the US.

What’s New?

Survival Mode - Unlocked after players complete Day 30 in the main game, Survival mode plays quite a bit differently as it allows Anling and Cody to last as long as they can in the game world, and deemphasizes the story content. In short, it’s all about survival and thriving in the zombie apocalypse. If you die, there’s no continuing either - how far can you make it in this endless game mode?

Zombie Hordes - We’ve added a new, and terrifying zombie mechanic - the zombie hordes. You won’t want to try taking these on and instead must find a way to escape before you’re overwhelmed. These hordes add a sense of tension and fear to an already troubling world.

More Story - We’re suggesting that our players head to the Farm and the Survivor’s Camp to see how the story of Anling and Cody evolves in this latest update. No spoilers!

AMD FSR - On the technical side of things, UNDYING now supports AMD FSR, which will help improve performance by 10-30% on low-end devices. Integrated, NVIDIA, and AMD graphics cards are all affected. Now more people can enjoy Undying on whatever system they want!

Check out the new public roadmap for Early Access below, as well. It highlights the content, features, and more that are coming to the game over the next several months leading to 1.0 launch.

Key Features:

  • Like Mother, Like Son: Cody will learn from the actions his mother, from combat to cooking. Make sure he knows the basics of survival before it’s too late.
  • When life gives you metal parts...: Always be on the look out for materials. You never know what is valuable to a trader, or what useful item you might be able to craft.
  • Ticking time bomb: Anling’s infection is ever looming. Manage your days and make the most of the time you have left. You’ll need to keep pushing on, because time isn’t waiting for you.
  • Cherish the moment: Don’t lose sight of what you are fighting for. Enjoy the small moments...

Currently available through Early Access, Undying is in development for PC (Steam / Epic Games Store), Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 Android, and iOS, scheduled for 2022.
