Night of the Dead: Vehicle Handling Improved; Crosshair System Reworked

Night of the Dead Jacktostudio

Night of the Dead is a third-person survival game where you play as Lucy - a victim of a human experiment who is trying to survive in a zombie-infested city. In this game, you'll scour the vast island for resources and build a stronghold sturdy enough to survive the zombie plague. While you're at it, communicate with other survivors on the island and ask for their help so you can escape the isolated area successfully.

Recently, developer Jacktostudios deployed Update which brought a bunch of improvements, including reworks to both vehicle handling and crosshair system.

Now, driving in Night of the Dead feels a lot smoother. Furthermore, vehicles can climb steep slopes better, allowing you to go to higher areas with relative ease.

Aside from the reworked vehicle system, the crosshair in Night of the Dead is now always visible when using ranged weapons. The crosshair is also displayed for five seconds after initiating a melee attack.

Attack feedback has been added as well. This lets you know if your attack is a normal hit (red dot), critical hit (diamond), or headshot (triangle).
