Q&A: Multiplayer mat t e r s
We ask the development team how multiplayer will work in the Undead sequel
Will other players take control of your survivors in your game, or bring in their own characters?
You only play as survivors from your own community, whether you’re playing solo or with a friend. If you join a multiplayer game, you choose only one survivor to bring over – not your whole community.
Will progress carry over to their games? And could your friend get your favourite survivor killed forever?
Anything you gain in a multiplayer game carries over into your own game. When you’re scavenging through a house in a multiplayer game, you will find different loot to your friend. You’re able to share or trade what you find if you wish, or save it to bring back to your base. Same with standing – the survivor you bring to a multiplayer game will gain standing for the missions you complete, and that carries over to single-player.
It’s a dangerous world and making good decisions in bad situations is key. Any survivor you bring to a friend’s game is a possible risk because you’re introducing unknown elements – their playstyle can endanger your survivor, too! But the intention is that players work together to survive. When you go raiding with your friends in multiplayer, you’re there to watch each other’s backs.
