If there is one thing that Undead Labs is adamant about when it comes to Class3, itÂs that you will be dying a lot, and in many creative ways. In a new post to the Undead Labs website, Creative Director James Phinney explains that the zombie apocalypse doesnÂt wait for you to customize your character, and that youÂll be fighting from survival from the start.
While you may not get to choose your character's look at the start of Class3, you will be able to recruit other survivors, and after earning their trust, you can play as them. And youÂll need to, because if Phinney has made one thing clear in his post, itÂs the many creative ways that youÂll meet your untimely demise in Class3.
The zombies are relentless, and any mistake can be fatal. Odds are, you will die many times and in many ways. Bitten, bloodied, torn in half. Taking a turn too fast in some dead lawyerÂs sports car. Sickened, poisoned, heaving and shuddering at the end. Charred and broken, victim of your own ill-timed firebomb. Weak from hunger, struggling to get away, but failing to find the energy to break free. YouÂre going to die as Marcus, despite his determination and strength. YouÂre going to die as Maya, despite her military training and keen eye. YouÂre going to die as Ed, despite his speed and stealthiness. And once dead, they wonÂt come back.
Phinney also stresses the importance of saving people if theyÂre in danger as Class3 moves forward in real time, even when youÂre not playing all be it at a slower pace, so if you ignore a person in need, thereÂs a good chance theyÂll become zombie chow.
The other big thing to understand is that Class3 moves forward in real time. All the time. This means that people who seem to be in danger actually are. They wonÂt survive forever. Leave them alone while you stock up on ammo or choose to help some other group, and you may return to find nothing but zombies and the tattered remnants of their survival gear. At times youÂll have to decide between helping out a friend who is under attack or hurrying home to make sure everyone else survives the latest zombie assault.
