TLSDZ Date

The Last Stand: Dead Zone is the fourth installment in the The Last Stand series. It was announced on January 16, 2012 via ConArtist's Twitter and Facebook pages. The Early Access Beta was released on February 21, 2012, and is only open to those who have liked The Last Stand's Facebook page. It was also released at Armor Games on August 14, 2012, and requires a free Armor Games account.

Storyline

Whilst there is no storyline in-game yet, the game's backstory is heavily fleshed out. See TLS:DZ Story Timeline.

Features

The Last Stand: Dead Zone retains some of the features from The Last Stand: Union City, in addition to introducing several new features.

Compound

The Compound is the player's base of operations in the Dead Zone and the home of all the survivors in their group.

Crafting

Crafting allows the player to create and/or upgrade weapons and gear once specific benches have been constructed. Certain components can also be crafted. Schematics, Fuel and the appropriate components and/or resources are required in order to craft items.

Dead Zone Gazette

The Dead Zone Gazette informs the players about updates to the game and special limited-time events.

PvP

Players' compounds may be raided by other players, unless the player is online or under protection. The raiding group can steal resources from the compound's storage and production buildings, but must also face any survivors present there, which will be controlled by the AI.

Suppression and Cover

Survivors can take cover behind objects in order to avoid being struck by gunfire and can fire upon any opponents in range. However, whilst immune to damage when in cover, popping out to fire at opponents exposes them to return fire and a sufficient volume of fire on their position would suppress them, preventing them from returning fire.

Resources

Resources must be collected in order to construct and upgrade buildings, as well as sustaining the player's survivors. There are 5 resource types, Wood, Metal, Cloth, Food and Water. They can be scavenged during missions, obtained through recycling, or collected from production buildings.

Recycling

All items can be recycled for resources and occasionally components. Structures can also be dismantled, which works in the same way. Every item and structure provides a set amounts of either, depending on the specific type. Note that in order to recycle multiple items at once, the player must build the Recycler.

Tasks and Achievements

Tasks provide objectives for the player to accomplish and provide XP and occasionally items when completed, much like Quests in TLS:UC. Achievements are nearly identical to their TLS:UC incarnation.

Weapon Attachments and Conditions

Weapon Attachments and Conditions affect the various statistics possessed by weapons. It has been reworked from its TLS:UC incarnation, the details of which are covered in the article.

Weapons

See Dead Zone Weapons.

Development

See TLS:DZ - Development Timeline.
