Darkness Falls is a challenging overhaul mod, and considered one of the most popular overhaul mods. It has a story, missions, new zombies, demons, new weapons, multiple weapon, tool and armour tiers, classes, farming which requires water, and food changes. Additional vehicles are provided by bdub’s vehicle mod, there are new forges, many storage and inventory options, and customisable wandering & screamer hordes. The mod is considered the most difficult of the overhaul mods when it comes to challenging monsters, however, much of the challenge is setup behind difficulty levels, so you can customise your level of difficulty by choosing your option.
