Just one more day untill this game comes out Reviews across the board are giving it 8.0+'s .
Its being described as if fallout and borderlands had an undead baby.
I did encounter a zombie near a cliff side. I shot him with my modified electric gun, broke one arm, chopped off another, embedded my poisonous machete in his head, lit him on fire with a Molotov cocktail, and finally kicked him off the side of the cliff.
Item's drop like loot a.k.a borderlands style and they can also be crafted.
