This is my final episode from the Open Beta and we’re going to explore Dark Zone East for a taste of what Dark Zone is like. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to go back into the Dark Zone and play it properly, but this is like a first go tutorial in the Dark Zone and let me tell you, it’s scary enough as it is!
So when you go into the Dark Zone you have to proceed through a gate and some kind of air lock kind of room, then you have to scan the area to map it first. We’re warned that we might run into people scavenging for supplies and to be wary of… greedy people. But I think it might be referring to other online players.
The Dark Zone (or DZ) lets you go in and find special contaminated equipment you can air lift out and keep. But other people are trying to do the same thing, apparently.
