Garena announced on Monday (5 April) that they will be publishing Undawn, a new immersive open-world survival shooter game for PC and mobile, which is slated to launch later this year.

Undawn is set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies and will combine both Player vs Player (PvP) and Player vs Environment (PvE) gameplay as players fend off "the dual threats of zombies and other humans as they fight to survive in this hellscape".

Players can freely explore the open world of Undawn, featuring dynamic weather and day-night cycles, though managing their vitals and physical condition will be key to survival. They can also set out alone or join a group, as they scavenge for resources and craft materials to build a base. Players must also learn how to protect themselves, their base and resources with a diverse selection of weapons and combat styles.

Undawn is built using Unreal Engine 4 and will offer a huge open world that pushes the boundaries for both graphics and multiplayer gameplay. 

The game is developed by Tencent Games’ LightSpeed and Quantum Studios, with Garena being its publisher in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. Garena first unveiled Undawn at Garena World 2021, this year's online edition of the company's annual gaming and esports event in Southeast Asia.
