In the wake of the apocalypse, a new city was borne. A militia of survivors, assembled and armed by the Nazarov mafia family, waged a bloody war to reclaim a small piece of their home. The fighting was brutal, the losses catastrophic, but in the end a victory was achieved.

Purged of infection block-by-block and surrounded by a formidable wall, the New City now stands as the stronghold of humanity. The milita patrols the Wall, maintaining the peace and defending the city. The messengers scout the remains of the city, looking for supplies and survivors. And the skullhunters prowl for infected, collecting a bounty for every scratcher they destroy.
