The highly anticipated Alpha 20 update for 7 days to Die is now available. Those on the PC can opt-in starting today if they want to try the latest changes and improvements before it hits the live servers soon.

Alpha 20 update

According to the developers, Alpha 20 is the largest content update that they’ve made thus far. This is thanks to the increased number of devs working on the game for the past two years. Moreover, new proprietary tools were used to improve the title, as well as speed up the creation of new content.

This update features a brand new random world generator that allows you to create new worlds complete with cities, a trader that gives you quests, and so much more. Besides that, there are more than 200 new Points of Interest (POIs) with over 550 explorable locations in total (including older POIs).

Of course, you cannot fight the zombies without the right firearms, so six new weapons have been added, in addition to 13 weapons with HD remakes, and new primitive pipe weapons.

Here are the other things that you can expect:

  • Navezgane has many city improvements, terrain improvements, and new rural and wilderness communities
  • Nearly 25 new HD characters with a couple with improved shaders
  • Block Placement Improvements
  • We have added a Robotic Drone Companion to carry your extra gear, heal you, and more
  • Rendering improvements with 100s of new PBR models
  • Quest Improvements including new restore power night Quests
  • AI Enemy Improvements, including city spawning, ducking, obstacle attacks, head tracking, and burst attacks.
  • Feral Sense Game options for a completely new game experience
  • Vehicle Improvements with coop passenger support and mods to improve and customize your Vehicles
  • Improved dynamic music and ambient audio system with added new content
  • Improved weather system with more distinct and varying weather
  • Animations have been improved from 1st person to 3rd person to provide a more immersive experience
  • A new Dismemberment system has been integrated with some of the zombies
  • Twitch Integration has been improved with many new commands, voting, and more
  • Modding support has been improved with better world editing, level editing, RWG, and Server.XML settings and tools
