Alpha 16.3 Patch Is Out!

  • Hey Survivalist,
    We’ve just released Alpha 16.3 Patch. Which includes fixes for many of the most important bugs reported by the community.
    It is strongly recommended to start a new RWG map, as the fixes necessitated core changes to the chunk code. We apologize for this inconvenience.

    For those of you that experience any problems please use your steam client to delete local files and reinstall the game. Also wiping your player profile data might be helpful. To delete the saved game and player profile data delete all files and folders that reside here: C:\Users\yourName\AppData\Roaming\7DaysToDie
