Alex briefly reviewed the newly unlocked buildings, which were generally very practical. However, these buildings felt undeniably evil and dark. Even Alex himself felt a bit unnerved by them.

The most attractive to Alex were naturally the Zombie Predator and the Strangler Armored Vehicle. With these two ultimate weapons, collecting zombies would be much easier for him.

However, good things come at high prices, and for now, it seems more practical to strengthen the basic infrastructure step by step. "System! Show my attributes!"

[Apocalypse Coins: 189]

Alex glanced at the apocalypse coins column. After spending 300 apocalypse coins to upgrade the City of Darkness, he was left with 189 coins, which should be enough to build some basic facilities for the time being.

"Then, let's upgrade the grave first!" Alex walked to an empty grave and said to the system, "System, upgrade the grave immediately!"

[Level 2 Grave: A grave that can bury an unlimited number of C-class and lower zombie bodies; prerequisite building: Level 1 Grave; price: 50 apocalypse coins.]

[Level 1 Grave selected, conditions met, ready to upgrade...]

[Consuming 50 apocalypse coins...]

As the system's synthesized voice finished, the grave in front of Alex began to tremble. Then, a more sinister and luxurious grave appeared before Alex.

[Level 2 Grave Upgrade Complete...]

Alex immediately picked up the burly zombie's body and threw it into the dark space of the grave. A ghostly wail sounded. This time, the body of the burly zombie was not ejected out. Two lines of text appeared on the tombstone.

[Body is being buried]

[Estimated Time: 2 Hours]
