7 Days to Die is an unforgiving and challenging zombie survival game. Players will find themselves scavenging for the most basic of resources, including clothing, and the materials needed to craft weapons and tools. While the game is challenging, there are plenty of videos at your disposal that will aid you in your journey. 7 Days to Die is a difficult, yet rewarding, experience, as players feel significant progression as they work to upgrade their bases and keep themselves safe from the impending danger of the ravenous zombie horde that plagues Arizona.
On the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game, the addition of local split-screen play has been added, giving you and a friend the ability to survive in this zombie-ridden post-apocalyptic world together! Split screen works extremely well for this title. Online play in 7 Days to Die is another great way to experience the game. Whether you are playing locally or online, having a friend along with you for the adventure always helps in making 7 Days to Die one of the most enjoyable survival games out there!
Out of all the zombie survival games that I have played, none of them have drawn me in as 7 Days to Die has. The environment gives off the atmosphere of lurking terror, the crafting menus are clean, and there is a sense of urgency in the game that pushes players to keep going. Whether I am out gathering resources or working on my base, I felt fully immersed in the world.
Another great addition to 7 Days to Die is the inclusion of some fan-favorite characters from Telltale’s The Walking Dead series through DLC or pre-order of the game. Characters such as Lee Everett and Michonne can be played as, along with others like Season 2’s Luke! This is a nice addition to the already spectacular game.
7 Days to Die does an incredible job of creating a dangerous atmosphere, and keeping players immersed in the world for hours on end. The game is one of my favorites that I have played so far on the Xbox One, and I can’t wait to get back into surviving in the vicious wasteland of Navezgane, Arizona!
