Announced on April first, and surprisingly not a joke, award winning narrative title Undying has just received its first major update. Undying has you play as a mother during the zombie apocalypse, after being infected she knows her days are numbered, and she must teach her son to survive in this deadly world, no matter the cost. An official description reads; ‘In this emotional survival game take control of Anling whose goal is to make sure her son Cody is safe and can live on after she turns. Limited resources must be managed in order to slow down Anling’s infection while also making sure both Anling and Cody do not starve from hunger or thirst.’ You also teach Cody survival skills such as cooking, crafting and combat, and eventually she may even begin to depend on him.
This new update adds a whole new set of control systems for Cody, totally redesigning his skillset to make use of a new control wheel to give Cody options to help fight in combat. Cody’s skill tree has also been updated with a whole host of new options. There are other quality of life improvements to the game, some being standard bug fixes but others being combat changes.
The official list reads;
- Brand new Combo System for One-Handed Weapons! When using a one-handed weapon, if you quickly tap the attack button, and hit the target, it will trigger a combo with up to three melee attacks.
- Attack Cancellation: You can now use the move command to cancel the attack recovery animation, after an attack, to gain more fault tolerance in combat.
- Upgrades to both Anling and Cody’s backpack will now have 12 slots with default.
- Bud Fixes for environments, some secret items, and characters have also been added.
The game’s early access period is quickly drawing to a close, and this new update marks a significant step closer to completion of the game. You can buy or follow the game on Steam to keep up with any and all updates on the title.
