Into a new world with a new character, and things have been pretty crazy. I got a pair of binoculars, surveyed my surroundings, and apparently there are THREE migo-scout towers around? I don’t even know what is a “migo”, is it a zombie?
My survivor also marked an anthill on my map? I know what an anthill is, but how come such an insignificant everyday thing be worthy of noting on my map? Judging by the giant cockroaches around, I’m guessing the anthill is SO gigantic that it simply cannot be ignored.
One more thing: what is a portal storm? Is it supposed to be something new and is it supposed to be something super frequent? I had a companion who suffers from hallucinations, so one day I had to wear an earmuff to shut off his screams in order to sleep. And right during that day, the game says a buzzing sound occurred and I feel something coming close. I was scared shitless, staring at my sleeping survivor being shut off from the outside world with a pair of earmuffs. My butthole was clenching the whole time. After I woke up, I got an achievement stating that I survived a portal storm. I didn’t quite enjoy whatever that was, and I am definitely not looking forward to another one of those “storms”.
Guess what? Right after one in-game week, I was hit by a SECOND portal storm. It also happened right after I woke up! There is a mission asking me to explore it out? I don’t think so, nope. I also heard lots of squealing sounds out there. I shut all the curtains and closed all the doors. I’m just gonna sit inside and wait this one out.
I also found a subway maintenance map, used it, and it revealed a “subway station?” just north of my base underground, with a vent covered by a single forest tile. Why is there a question mark next to its name? The vent does not seem accessible, as it’s surrounded by fences and there aren’t any stairs going down. When I tried to get through to it via the subway tunnel, I came across a strange monster, it’s not a zombie, it’s called something-something horror? Doesn’t sound like fun, neither does it sound like something I could handle. Ran all the way back to base.
Could all of these somehow be related? The portal storms, the strange subway station with a question mark north of my base and that random monster, what is all this? Is my character going to just randomly die one day?
