Map of the game world


Shelters are safe zones and places to store loot. Shelters are different in terms of size and customization.

Shelters are always available and most of them are also easy to find. Shelters are the only way to save your game.

Area 05

Area 05 is a relatively calm starting area where you start your journey, gather loot and prepare to cross the border.

In Area 05 you will find most of the game's shelters, traders and NPC's.

Border Zone

Border Zone is a game world divider and a physical border. Border Zone can be crossed by using crossing points which lead you to Vostok.

Each crossing point has a unique game mechanic and a certain level of risk associated with them.


Vostok is a dangerous and mysterious zone. The moment you cross the border by using a Crossing Point and enter Vostok, you are inside the permadeath zone.

If you die in Vostok, you will lose everything including your shelter items and safe files.


You are not alone in this world, there’s good guys, bad guys and something between.
