Basic Training

This chapter gives a quick overview of your initial tactics when first facing this city-wide viral outbreak. You’ll learn the ins and outs of the MENU system, all the elements of your HEADS-UP DISPLAY, the main EXPLORATIONS you can undertake, how to gather HEALTH and EVOLUTION POINTS, and your INITIAL MOVES and ATTACKS.


Every single UPGRADE available to you throughout your adventure is showcased, with FRAME PICTURES showing the consequence of each MANEUVER. You’ll learn how much each Upgrade costs, what it does, and when to purchase it. This is the KEY to unlocking the MOST POWERFUL ATTACKS and MOVES in your repertoire!

Entity Encounters

Spoiler-free, general advice is revealed for the main menaces roaming Manhattan. Examples of INNOCENTS, the INFECTED (which range from the shambling citizen to the lolloping HUNTER), and the Military (including Commanders and all VEHICLES) are revealed, along with main methods of ATTACKING each of them.


The BULK of this guide reveals, in meticulous detail, all of your MISSIONS. After a quick OVERVIEW, each section contains a CITY MAP showing the major LOCATIONS for each mission. After this, MULTIPLE COMPLETION METHODS and ADVANCED COMBAT TACTICS allow you to choose a variety of ways to play. BOSS takedown tactics are revealed, too.

Additional Offerings

Segmented into THREE sections, the first showcases EVERY SINGLE EVENT. Tried and tested tactics for gaining the FABLED PLATINUM RATING are unveiled, along with a special RADICAL SCORE that only the very finest players can hope to beat! Then the ENTIRE WEB OF INTRIGUE, and all 250 COLLECTIBLE LOCATIONS are shown.


With a game this complex, you need to keep track of a variety of STATISTICS. Fortunately, the APPENDICES reveal all; including ALL THE EVOLUTION POINTS you receive for every type of action you undertake, HOW and WHEN all UPGRADES and EVENTS become available, and of course, a COMPLETE LIST of ACHIEVEMENTS and TROPHIES.


As a special BONUS, we go BEHIND THE SCENES at developer RADICAL ENTERTAINMENT, and lavish dozens of EXCLUSIVE pieces of CONCEPT ART, along with interviews with KEY TEAM MEMBERS about the creation of the game, from character evolutions to a HOST of gruesomely gorgeous art of every INFECTIOUS ATROCITY!
