New Update LifeAfter Season 3 : Open World Doomsday

New Update LifeAfter Season 3 : Open World Doomsday

NetEase Games announced today that the third season of its popular post-apocalypse survival game LifeAfter (available on iOS, Android and PC) will start in November 2020. Season 3 will introduce never-seen-before content to all players, including seamless open world, upgraded zombies, land, air and sea combat, etc., which will massively revolutionize the game's survival experience!

To create a revolutionary post-apocalyptic open world survival experience, this major update will bring three new features to the table:

A broad open world that's free to explore in a range of transport across land, air and sea

In this update, players will enter a large seamless map where explorable areas are doubled in size. The transition between areas will be smooth and natural, allowing players to hike from Fall Forest to the deserts, or climb up to the top of Mount Snow then swim all the way to the Island. Undoubtedly, the journey itself will not be as easy; players will find myriad of challenges and surprises ahead with much more varieties from this update. Once Season 3 begins, players can find free vehicles scattered throughout the map — motorcycles, off-road cars, and even helicopters, etc. Vehicles can be used when fighting zombies with teammates. Players can enjoy an all-new, next-level combat experience as they carve out a way to survive.

Engine Upgrade brings ultra-high-quality graphics

Due to the total game engine upgrades in the coming Season 3, visuals for the game’s landscapes, weather changes and characters details are massively improved, bringing a much more immersive doomsday environment, and a smooth, realistic combat experience. For the same reason, seasons changes and ecosystem are becoming vivid and promising. Furthermore, players will be able to participate the construction of infrastructures, such as dams, roads and gas stations, to makes significant changes to the in-game world.

Enemy evolved — more intelligent zombies

Season 3 will pose many new challenges for the players. The new horde system will make the Infected harder to deal with. Barbed wire and locked doors might not be enough to stop them, as the Infected will be able to interact with the environment in more ways, such as climbing, destroying obstacles, and even making use of the environment to camouflage themselves. Good news for players however, the weapon and profession systems will also receive an update, providing players with more options during the combat.

Since its global launch in2018, LifeAfter has been downloaded nearly 200 million times worldwide, and earned the title of 2019's most competitive mobile game on Google Play.

The third season of LifeAfter will be launching in November across iOS, Android and PC. With this new season, LifeAfter will become the first true open world post-apocalyptic survival mobile game. More information will be revealed in soon, so stay tuned!
