LEFT ALIVE tells a human story of survival from the perspective of three different protagonists during the devastating invasion set in war-torn Novo Slava in 2127.
Many civilians were unable to evacuate and remained stranded in the city that after it transformed into a war zone.
Tackling the foe head on is not the only way to survive. It is also vital to manage risk by knowing when to evade enemies and when to employ indirect tactics, such as setting traps. Finally, when confrontation absolutely cannot be avoided, the variety of tricks and options you have stored up is the key to ensuring survival.
Firearms are highly effective in combat, but there are extremely few situations in LEFT ALIVE when you will have sufficient ammunition to use them. This makes the gadgets that you can craft very important.
If the player is online then it becomes possible to switch the game map to a heat-map that shows where other players have died on the same stage. This makes it possible to infer that areas where many people died are dangerous and avoid them.
