Jacktostudios, the developer of Night of the Dead, released a new update that works on systems, skills, and bugs. The new dodge ability helps you evade enemies, and it comes in handy when you are up against something fast. Pair the dodge ability with the brand new guard ability using the right mouse button to increase your survivability. Do mind that the guard ability will drain stamina and guard points, so use it wisely.

This update also brings in new equipment, such as the Power Saw, Rocket Launcher, Brass Knuckle, Javelin, and Polearm. More details on combat skills can be found within the game.
