One of the most noticeable changes to Zombie Army 4: Dead War is going to be the fixes to some levels like RottenCoast and Dead Zeppelin Heartbreaker, some players were experiencing some progress blocks, but now they should be gone. Players who have been struggling to find a balance regarding the game’s sound will be happier now. Ambient, menu, and zombie sounds are now at the correct levels, so players will not have to spend more time trying to find a balance between the three sound settings.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War is available on PC, PS4 Xbox One, and Google Stadia. For more information regarding this update, go to the official Zombie Army4: Dead War website.
