The land available to settlement is huge. I spent about 2 hours just exploring staring out in Round Hill and ending on top of Mount Tallac which only is about 1/7 the distance around the lake.
The remains of old road abound and they give a minor speed increase. But if wheeled transport of goods can only go on roads they will add a strategic element to the game since tribal roads can only be built upon claimed territory.
Over half the land is covered with destruction debris from the first phase of the apocalypse. I am sure this is good scavenging territory but later in the game will we have the skills to improve this land for cultivation? Screenie below:
