New Narrative and Deadlier Cars

Fans of the original Earn to Die franchise will surely love the latest iteration of the game. The current update offers loads of new features, add-ons, and a new gaming interface. In the original version, the hero of the game drives across a drab desert background. In Earn to Die 2, you will be taken to an urban landscape with more options to choose your paths including highways, tunnels, and more.

The story of Earn to Die 2 starts in the abandoned Exodus military base in Texas. In the original game, the base was the designated evacuation point to escape the rapacious zombie hordes. Unfortunately, Exodus has been abandoned and there is a new evacuation point: Florida.

So from Texas to Florida, you have to battle your way across the urban roads of America to prevent the zombies from eating your brains. This is where Earn to Die 2 becomes more interesting.

At the start of your journey, you will drive a beat up car to smash boxes, road blocks, and zombies. Your car, however, has limited fuel and you need to earn points to get to your destination. Your car is also destructible so you need to protect it at all cost.

The best part about Earn to Die 2 is the availability of new cars. As you travel down the road, you can pick up new cars and equip them with power-up upgrades including guns, armor, boosters, and other protective tools. 

Best Features of Earn to Die 2

Earn to Die 2 offers a new story that is significantly different from the original version. The new story also comes with a new interface, more exciting challenges, and increasing level of difficulty.

The game offers a new twist with the introduction of destructible cars. Your vehicle will suffer from battle damage and fatigue. Its engine is also vulnerable so you have to protect it with armor.

Earn to Die 2 offers 10 new vehicles including a fire truck, a sports car, an ice cream van, and a deadly police car. You must earn in-game dollars to be able to equip your car with new upgrades. The upgrades, such as the roof gun, can improve the performance of your vehicle against the marauding zombies.

Other exciting features of the game include new urban roads, zombie hordes, different types of zombies with unique skills, more difficult physics-based obstacles, and in-app purchase to boost your money count.
