Absolute Zero Complete
"Survivors arrive at a quarantined military base only to find the military has already abandoned it. Stuck in the frozen peaks, they need to follow the military trail before it is too late."
A Military base, codenamed: "South Haven", in the frozen Tibetan peaks, survivors need to make their way through the base to the Abandoned Complex entrance on the other side. This level contains 4 main paths through the map, with little changes to their paths, allowing players to fully explore the map through multiple playthroughs and a random timed event and event variations.
The Abandoned Complex underneath "South Haven" Military Complex, used for researching vaccinations, militarized weapons, and biological weapons. Acting as a checkpoint facility, it connects to multiple dig sites inside the massive peaks, most importantly Dig Sites Alpha and Beta. This level has 10 variations, 2 of which are randomly selected changes to events.
The "Chasm Ice Ruins", known as Dig Site Alpha, is a massive excavation site situated in a deep chasm situated between two mountains within the Tibetan peaks. The military have been using it for transportation between their main research facility and "South Haven", as well as for housing and storage. Survivors must make their way to the Temple Steppes on the other side of the chasm in order to reach the main facility. This level contains 2 ways through the map that have multiple changes within their own segments, and have the ability to intersect into each other without breaking flow.
The "Temple Steppes" once, went around a massive city in the center of its' fissure, now degraded over time and in ruin. With the path to the facility locked off, survivors will need to climb through the treacherous ruins of the ancient city and find the emergency entrance to the Aerith Research Facility at the top of the chasm. This level contains 6 path alternations, including one event being optional at random, witches that call hordes when they scream, and birds that guard weaponry left with their meals, alerting hordes when interrupted.
At last, the survivors reach the "Aerith Facility", the main research facility hidden on the outskirts of "South Haven" in a snowy forest. Having found the research facility and its' residents slain, the survivors must head back to "South Haven" and await their rescue.. or take escaping into their own hands. This level is static, the events do not randomize nor do any of the areas.
