warlord, an adventurer, a farmer, a slave, or just food for the cannibals! Build
a safe house, research new equipment, craft new gear and train your men from
puny victims to fearless warriors - with skill, luck and talent, you might even

single-player world maps ever to be offered in an RPG. Initially, only
restricted areas will be accessible, and other areas of the map become available
in future updates to the game."
