Once registration is complete, the user will then be prompted to create a character where they are free to choose gender, skin color, facial features, and hairstyle as well as providing the character a name. These names are unique across the entire game and can only be used on one character. Once the character is created, the user is now ready to explore and experience the open world, survival horror environment Dead Frontier 2 has to offer.
Dead Frontier 2 takes place in small towns along the outskirts of Fairview City, the city in which the game's prequel (Dead Frontier) takes place. The player begins their journey in Dallbow, the first of many infected towns introduced to players in the beginning. Either alone or with up to 8 friends, take on the hoards of infected awaiting at every corner while scavenging the post-apocalyptic, procedurally generated world within Dead Frontier 2.
