Alpha 16.4

7 Days To Die Logo Alpha 16.3Alpha 16.4 Has Arrived!

Alpha 16.4 is Live!

Survivalists, Another Build of 7 Days to Die is among us!

With the new Alpha 16.4 patch comes much needed vehicle mechanic updates, and more quality of life updates.

What this means for us –

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.

Server has been wiped since 10/26/2017 when the patch went live.
