The nuke event
The massive Season Three community celebration taking place today is the culmination of weeks of events inside Warzone that led to waves of zombies overtaking Verdansk. Yesterday saw a nuclear detonation and ultimate transformation in the game.
For weeks, players have fought off zombies throughout Warzone, while tracking their progress via Containment Protocols and Corruption Zones.
