SurrounDead: Apocalypse Update Finally Lets Players Customize Their Characters

Apocalypse Update PlaySurrounDead

SurrounDead is a 3D open-world survival game where you scour for resources in a world ravaged by an apocalyptic catastrophe. Unlike other similar titles with a more serious tone, like Dying Light 2 or DayZ, SurrounDead takes a more cartoonish approach when it comes to the appearance of its characters. Besides that, the game used to lack character customization as the developers provide you with pre-made ones to choose from. But that has changed with the newly released Patch 1.4.0, aka the Apocalypse update.

SurrounDead now has a fully-fledged character customization feature, letting you tweak certain things, such as skin color, hair type, and accessories, when creating a new character. Furthermore, you can find different clothing inside the containers around the map, including a simple shirt, military jacket, and body armor. The developers also said that they will add new clothes in the future.

The Apocalypse update brought multiple saves too, so you now have more save slots to work with! The developers also did a fantastic job of organizing the save system UI.
