The mode is accessible via Ubisoft Connect and includes a London full of zombies, Albion soldiers and Kelley enforcers, who amass the supplies you have to get to ensure the survival of your crew.

Each supply run begins with a random survivor and a gadget. You will search the map for supplies, power-ups and plan a route to avoid hordes of zombies.
You can lure them to the Albion guard post, and when they are scattered, plunder supplies such as gadgets, ammunition, and weapons and climb unscathed.
Once you have reached the minimum required amount, head to the extraction point and back to safety. Each successful run will reward you with “Z-credits” and you will get more credits for any stock above the minimum requirement.
Z-Creds can then be used to “prepare for the next supply run,” allowing you to purchase gadgets and weapons, some of which are only available for credits and cannot be looted as supplies.

Here are some tips for playing the mode from Ubisoft:
- Hold together. When one teammate falls, the whole team fails.
- Enhancements (question mark icons on the world map) will replenish your ammo, giving random abilities, weapons or gadgets that are necessary to reach the extraction point. Make sure you use the gadgets you find in Power-Ups to fight or avoid the Zombie Horde – you can’t remove them all.
- Speaking of zombies, you can get to safety by standing on vehicles, climbing over fences, or simply avoiding them. They also respond to noise. Shooting an unarmed weapon or sprinting across the street will alert nearby zombies to your position. Choose your battles carefully.
Ubisoft said it is currently only available for PCs because it wants the mode to be developed with gamers so that it can iterate frequently and fix it frequently.
To make this possible, the team must quickly deploy patches and have full control over it on the PC. As the team moves toward the beta phase, it will be added to the console, Stadium, and Luna.
