Unturned is an open-world single-player and co-op multiplayer survival game. It fits right into the Action, Adventure, and Casual genre. The game was designed and published officially by Nelson Sexton. Smartly Programmed Games is also owned by Nelson Sexton.
He is the founder of Smartly Programmed games. Unturned was officially released for Microsoft Windows on 7 July 2021. The game is currently available for Microsoft Windows, Linux and Macintosh operating systems.
The story of the game is quite similar to other survival games. However, there are a few twists which make the game extraordinary than the other titles.
The game starts by spawning the player in the middle of the map of their choice. Players must search and find weapons to defend themselves against zombies and hostile creatures. You must also find supplies to yourself alive. You need to find food and water to keep yourself alive.
As you progress through the game, you earn experience from killing zombies and hostile creatures. You can use these experience points later for upgrades.
Unturned Survival Game Mode
In the survival mode, the player is spawned on the map with clothes matching their skill set. Players need to for weapons and supplies to survive against the zombie apocalypse. Survival Mode is available in multiplayer too. You can easily play the game with your friends or random people on the internet. The sole objective is to survive, but players may team-up and kill each other.
Unturned Arena Game Mode
Arena game mode is only available to play in multiplayer. Players are spawned in the center of the map with important supplies and weapons scattered around them. The players need to rush and collect items, so they can last longer in the game.
The last person or the last team, alive is the winner of the game. The game mode allows players to kill each other and their team-mates too.
Unturned Horde Game Mode
Horde game mode is still in the beta stage and can be accessed through the Steam Workshop. In horde game mode, players collectively fight waves of zombies and the points collected by them can be used to buy upgrades. In this game mode, the player cannot die due to hunger or thirst.
How to enable Console Window
To use cheats and commands in Unturned, you first need to enable the console window where you will enter your cheats and activate. In most games, the console window is disabled by default. However, in Unturned, the console window is already enabled.
To open the console window, press the tilde “~” key. You can now enter cheats in the console window and press Enter key to activate the cheats.
