This is a great improvement. While the morale mission and training mission had sometimes no zeds present, that was a relief, but boring. Someone posted the idea that having zed bites actually cause infections, which I think is a very bad idea. The positive, it promotes a challenge. possibly both positive and negative, strikes fear into you. Negative, a chance of running out of stamina, which makes bites likely, and number of community members you can use. What if they all get sick and possibly die. It might as well be game over from there. Lily is only one who could get sick, but no chances of dying because she's not supposed to and you can't use her. I like my challenges sometimes, but no one is so hardcore that chances of mistakes are unlikely.

Been able to take an NPC with you is a massive improvement and will make me go back to it tonight, often I felt alone in the zombie apocalypse which got boring having an ally with you in the rescue an ally missions was great made it possible to fully search an area while your ally took on the zeds and save your ass a bit in tricky situations too so good move undead labs. not happy however that there fixing the none appearance of zombies in the morale missions, that was always a relief to get a repetitive section of the game out the way quickly by driving to a place and finding nothing to kill and completing the mission without leaving the car lol. I just want them to add a new game plus mode now i so can start again and do the missions in the beginning that timed out cos was messing about exploring as I did in dead rising as well lol, got missing achievements and don't wanna have to start again now after prob 100 hours playing so far.
