You'll probably know what Death Road to Canada is, but just in case you're new here it's a top-down, zombie slaying, cross-country RPG where you'll likely hate your enemies and detest your allies.

On with the update features, though it's such a huge list that the best way to do this is via very boring bullet points for the main areas (sorry).

  • New unlock system
    • Use Zombo Points to unlock new perks, traits, the Gnome trader, and passive bonuses.

  • Ending changes
    • Each character that survives to the end gets an epilogue based on their personality, skill, and more.

That may not seem like a lot but check out the full patch notes here - and the Miscellaneous changes here - and you'll see what I mean. This update's going to be a good one.
