So are you wondering what the hell is up with Alpha 11? Some bad new it’s not here yet, but with good reason our friends The Fun Pimps have been working very hard to implement the new Unity 5 engine into the game. This will seriously start to change the way we look at 7 Days to Die, literally. The set back is a bit disappointing but by doing this it looks like were getting some extra features and unfortunately a few will have to be pushed back. According to The Pimps they are getting very close and if there are no set backs Alpha 11 will still be here this March. I can’t wait to see the new buildings as well as testing out the bow and arrows. The latest screen shot of the burned out zone with charred zombies and the overhanging trees (listed below) looks awesome. So lets all send some positive vibes their way hand keep our fingers crossed we see Alpha 11 here real soon.

Here are a couple new screen shots to keep us all enticed until we get to jump into this latest update.

 

Here is the latest list from the 7 Days to die site  apparently the official notes will be 5 pages long, this sounds very promising.

  • Unity 5 with a lot of most its bells and whistles working
  • Sexy new Speedtree system with brand new trees
  • New screen space ambient occlusion system gives shadowing and weight to the world
  • New global physically based shader system which looks freaking beautiful
