Oh yeah, I forgot that you also play as the same survivors through the entire game this time around. Before, you could imagine that you played as a different group that arrived to the same extraction point a day later into the apocalypse each round, but now we have upgrades. It's just weird to get rescued, upgrade your character and.. have to be rescued again. From the same location. A day later.
I know it's extremely miniscule, but it still matters. Kinda. And changing it would make the final helicopter extraction much more worth it.
