Enemy List 

The enemies are described as “extremely quick, agile, and dangerous.” Those that are indoors are more powerful as exposure to UV light (sunlight) makes them weaker.

The three major forms are Biters, Virals And Volatiles, in ascending order of danger. Extended exposure to darkness turns Biters to Virals and then to Volatiles.

“Volatiles are infected organisms developed entirely in darkness. They are never seen on the streets during the day, and instead stay hidden in dark places,” explained the game developers.

Additionally, there will also be Demolishers, Banshees, and Revenants. They all have distinctive features and qualities and players must be familiar with all of them. This will help them defeat each one based on their weaknesses.
