The Elver DLC adds a new map inspired by a variety of different countries in Eastern Europe. In this map players scavenge for resources to construct equipment such as horde beacons and gasmasks, allowing them to obtain high tier gear beyond looting a military base.
The map layout has separate areas dedicated for base building within a dense forest surrounding the only lootable location on the map; the city. Zombies remain a constant threat across the metropolis, and spell doom for the reckless survivor. Players must keep an eye out for any TVs with static, which mark the presence of hidden ranger crates containing unique weapons and items.
