If you don’t already have a copy of 7 Days to Die in your Steam library, you may be part of a shrinking crowd of unfortunate souls. As part of a Greenlight closure notice, Valve noted that 7 Days to Die was in the top 100 best-selling games released on Steam.
It’s a good time to be playing the zombie survival sandbox, as one of its biggest patches to date just dropped. Alpha 16 added “a complete functional electricity system” for players to use when decking out their anti-zombie fortress. Electrified fences and shotgun turrets, anyone?
The patch doesn’t stop there, either. There’s a distance rendering system, more zombie spawns, game stage improvements, new enemies (watch out for the Disturbed Tourist!), a fur system for animals, painting, progression changes, controller support, more recipes, a Stealth 2.0 system, and a ton of new locations including the city of Departure.
