Ready to play Doomsday: Last Survivors on your PC? Let’s take a moment to look at the game first before diving head-first into an unknown genre that might be uncharted territory for many new gamers. The real-time strategy genre was popular in the 90s and 2000s, but has lost a lot of its charm among the newer generations and has since been only popular to loyalists of these types of games. This beginner’s guide aims to help reintroduce this genre to newer gamers or help some veterans remember some tips they may have forgotten about.

Remember that you can install Doomsday: Last Survivors on your PC with the help of BlueStacks, so make sure to do that if you haven’t already. The game requires a lot of strategic planning and heavy decision-making that can really intimidate the more casual playerbase. Real-time strategy games are competitive PvP titles, so you’ll quickly come to the realization that a lot of players try really hard to fight for supremacy. This guide should help you prepare for this inevitable outcome in the game.

Shelter Building

The primary goal of a real-time strategy game is to develop your own base of operations. In Doomsday: Last Survivors, the player is tasked with managing the shelter and constructing buildings that have different purposes such as producing resources, training new soldiers, or managing relations and other sectors that are needed to help your community survive. Players will have shelter building at the top of their priority, building or upgrading something at all times to keep up with the growing needs of the shelter.

To build or upgrade buildings, players will need to consume resources which is where the importance of proper management comes up in the conversation. Players will need to make sure that they always have enough to make sure that their shelter has enough resources to progress. It can be difficult waiting for your structures to finish upgrading, so players who don’t have much patience might not come to enjoy what Doomsday: Last Survivors has to offer.

Expansion & Economy

Expansion is directly linked to shelter building in terms of importance. We already mentioned that players constantly need to manage their shelter by building new structures and upgrading existing ones but that can prove to be difficult if the player doesn’t have the space to cram in all those large infrastructures. Luckily, players can always expand their territory by upgrading their town hall and clearing out any unnecessary objects inside the shelter to open up more space.

We already talked about the importance that resources play in building your shelter. This is because your economy is the lifeblood that keeps your shelter alive and is the one sector that needs the most attention to make sure that you can continue doing everything you need to do. If a player’s economy isn’t properly developed early on, this might cause your entire shelter to crumble from its own weight because it can’t supply the necessary resources to support itself, so put this sector on top of your priority list.

Military Presence

Having a strong military is a requirement in any real-time strategy game. Players with a weak military presence will soon realize that they won’t be enjoying the game because they’ll constantly be preyed upon by stronger players as a farming zone for resources. Having a few hundred soldiers inside your base won’t keep you safe since most of the top players on the server have tens of thousands of advanced tier units that can easily run over a beginner’s military.

The most common mistake that beginners mistake is not putting heavy emphasis on the production of soldiers thinking that training a hundred soldiers every 4 hours or so will be enough to keep them afloat. For beginners, having at least 3 thousand of each unit type becomes an early goal that they need to rush for the first week that they play. Having a strong military presence can also mean having connections with the right people that can help you in your times of need.

Collectible Heroes

Doomsday: Last Survivors also has an RPG mode where players can collect unique heroes that they can use to fight against zombie hordes in a PvE setting. This adds a bit of diversity to the game and also gives it some backstory that players can follow. We’ll talk more about that later, but for now, we need to talk about how players need to collect different types of heroes that they can use to use in these PvE campaigns so that they can help their shelter progress even more.

Heroes in the game can be acquired through a gacha system where various characters are ranked in tiers according to how strong they are in battle. These heroes have different stat distributions, classes, roles, specializations, and abilities that are all useful in both campaigns and the main RTS mechanics of Doomsday: Last Survivors. It’s the player’s goal to collect the strongest characters in the game by constantly trying to recruit strong units that they can either randomly summon or purchase in the premium store.

Campaign & Missions

The Campaign refers to the PvE game mode that we just talked about where heroes will be used to fight against hordes of zombies. In the campaign mode, players can collect resources and specific parts that are needed to construct various structures in the game. Even though the RTS gameplay is the main feature of Doomsday: Last Survivors, players simply can’t ignore doing the campaigns since they are directly tied to your main missions and progression.

Players will be given a set of missions that they need to follow that serves as a roadmap to the goals that players need to achieve to attain economic stability. Many new players get impatient and simply choose to ignore these missions. However, it’s important for players to constantly follow these quests and try to finish them as fast as possible to quickly reach a point where they can stand on their own feet. Also, missions provide valuable resources that can really help your economy.
