There's a new trailer to show off. Here's a little analysis for ya. Two friends are trying to survive from zombies around them, then they see light in a building with 2 guys standing, one on 2nd floor looking out the window other is in front of the main entrance covered with sand sacks blocking zombies around it. It looks like you can create fortifying system with pocky wires too.. Of course 1 of the guy that films the trailer shot down by one of the loudest sniper rifle and those 2 friends earn bunch of loot inside the building.
