7 Days to Die on Mac

7 Days to Die is a role-playing game that combines elements of survival horror with a first-person shooter. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic open world teeming with zombies and environmental threats.

The events take place in the made-up country of Navezgane, Arizona, which is one of the few places that has remained after a nuclear Third World War has just left the entire planet in ruins.

The player takes on the role of a war survivor who must secure basic necessities like food, shelter, and water while gathering weapons and armor to fight off the hordes of zombies (suggested to be the result of nuclear fallout and/or a new strain of flu) and the dangerous animals that have infested Navezgane.


The main objective of the player is to keep their character alive for as long as possible while facing the risks of starvation, thirst, illness, and zombie attacks.

The character can scavenge for materials in both nature and the ruins of civilization. He can construct objects and items (including weapons, vehicles, and structures), which get worn off or break down over time, and he has to either learn how to repair or craft them or find new ones.

Exploring the environment, taking on quests from NPCs and farming are other key elements of the gameplay.


There are numerous animals that can be hunted for food or that can hunt the player. However, the main hazard is zombies, which are affected by the game’s day/night cycle. During the day, they are relatively slow-moving and easy targets that can only detect the player at relatively close ranges, but at night, they become much faster and much more dangerous.

As the game progresses, more types of hostile zombies appear. They can attack anything in their way, including defenses built by the player, until they are killed or the obstacle is destroyed.

If zombies find out where the player is, they will continue their relentless pursuit until he is dead or has escaped the area. In order to avoid a close encounter with zombies, the character can use stealth and distraction, or fight them off with the weapons at hand.

Visual and audio design

Graphically, the post-war survival atmosphere is represented with creative lighting and shadows. Sound effects have been added to some of the actions to make the gameplay more immersive.


The game supports Survival and Creative multiplayer modes, allowing for cooperative play in a shared world with a large number of players. Depending on the settings of the server, interactions may be friendly or hostile.
