Pre-order my digital copy on PSN.
I got 6 dockets of weapons after registering my pre-order code a free skin and play as the Zombie mode.
There is also a pretty cool phone game that lets you gather supplies(weapons,med kits etc)
Which you can send to your in game character in a form a drop boxes each can contain 20 items.
Havent played it too much but already got like 15 medkits.
Unlocks also have rifles,guns,molotovs,special meele weapons so it seems like a really useful little add on.

This phone app is pretty sweet.
You have scouts that you send on time based missions some of them are pretty long like 8 hours.
For each mission you get money ,loot ,agility or power xp.
Money is required for healing them.
Each mission requires an amount of "power" which is based on how lvld up your characters are you can send 3 scouts on each mission they lose health on each mission.
You can speed up time on missions but money is needed for it.
Parkour is done well and if you get the hang of it its really fluid.
The weapons feel like they have force behind them unlike in Skyrim.
If you do a power attack limbs will get torn off skulls get cracked and heads fly off
doesnt metter if its zombie or human it gets demolished.
Looting is easy and fun tons of stuff to loot shelves ,cashier,vans ,medic vans usually have 1-2 medkits ,police vans have weapons.The following 2 have to be locked picked but even the very hard ones can be done failrly easily.
There are 3 types of xp agility you get that for parkour,climbing ,power for fighting and survivor for doing side missions ,automatic events and missions collecting air drops.
Agility skills help you climb faster ,run for time,get some extra moves like slide drop kick and ram.
Power skills help you use your weapons more effectively ,give you more stamina you can acquire power moves ,finishing moves,weapons become more durable.
Survivor skills allow you to craft things granades(elemental and normal),bombs(elemental and nromal),booster(like in far cry 3,4),barter skills,grappling hook,use different kind of traps,use camoflauge(like in Walking dead),create shields,repair more times.
Didnt play much of the story took my time boosting my character.
Getting air drops are auto events as well if you get to it first you get to collect 2 boxes but that has to be done fast cause raiders always hunt these.
You can kill them fairly easily but you'll lose a box.
Only con so far is that weapons broke pretty easily and each has a repair limit there for its not really worth it to buy the expensive ones.
They are limited for 3-4-5 repairs and break after about 10-15 kills.
The repair skills might change that cause it says that often it wont take a repair
slot but for now I dont know by how much.
The skills are extremly useful in this game there some reduce fall damage by doing a forward roll allowing you to jump from 8-10 m heights without losing health another one adds a bit of wall surface running meaning you can go up on surfaces which dont have grappling points this way you can easily climb any surface under really short time.Ramming allows you to run through crowds of zombies knocking them away.Stompig allows you to one shot zombies/humans on ground.
Boosting my stats up to lvl 13 on each tree for 3rd tier abilities like stealth finisher which allow you to finish night hunters ,grappling hook and finishing moves.
Guns can be found in police vans or later on can be bought from merchants for around 10000+ dollars.
This time xp is doubled ,flares can be used to drive away zombies ,uv lights can be used to weaken night hunters.
The later are going out in huge numbers but they are easy to avoid just use the minimap to check on their area of sight,hold x to use survivor sense which allows you to locate them when they are near.When they get close just switch off flash light and try to stay out of their sight.
Dont try to take on them even if you succeed to kill one the sounds ttarcts the nearby ones and they gang up on you.Unless you stealth kill them.
Night time airdops give you double survivor xp since raiders wont come for them because they are afraid going out.
Surving outside gives you load of survivor xp as well.
Still havent progressed in the story just taking my time with the game.
There are possibly 2 maps.

I played 30 hours with it.
Been playing co op ,lvling up Im near maxed out by now.
Only at 10% in story and havent reached the 2nd map yet.
As you progress in the story you encounter tougher zombies and even normal zombies become more aggresive.
At the start they are pretty slow by now they come at you pretty fast in 10+ groups.
It's pretty hard to take on them without getting injured.
So far it's been brilliant. Only got so far as to doing the mission for Gazi and I just done that. The parkour is really something else. I never expected it to be as fun as it is. I'm also loving the slow motion you get when you cave a zombie's head in. Graphics are good as well (not that that is a big thing that wins me over). It's nice to see detail on faces and to see the clear mouldy teeth of a zombie while he is trying to get at you.
So far I have only been troubled by these virals that can do decent climbing. I shat myself when I was climbing up a ladder and one of them just jumped at me. I jumped backwards and nearly killed myself. I then had to make a getaway and nearly died in the process. So all in all I am really enjoying it.
Right now I am doing a mission where I have to find a pistol for someone called Dawud because apparently he's gonna give me access to a strash but I can't seem to find a pistol anywhere as of now.
After reading reviews and watching Angry Joe, I don't know if I will play this game until a few years from now when it's super cheap on Steam. Some of the annoyances people have with the game would drive me crazy.
