There are no loading screens, so players can seamlessly roam around the map in any direction they choose. Multiple items can be stored on the player's bike for fast travel to areas they have already visited.

Players have the ability to ride motorcycles, which are used to traverse the hazardous terrain. Players can use weapons to fight against the non-human enemies in the game, such as zombies and feral animals. The game also features a dynamic weather system, where the player can experience rain, fog, blizzards, and other types of weather.

The game also features a dynamic day and night cycle, which affects the gameplay in many ways.
