Business is booming and money is staring to roll into Malton. Government contracts and a new hospital group, Better Living Researchers, have the chance to really put this aging town on the map.

When the 2nd Squad were dropped into Malton and were scattered across the besieged city, their stories differed greatly. Luckily, several of them sought solace in writing journals about their experiences, and these writings provide us with a rare, personalized look into what happened in Malton. So far, three separate accounts have been found. One is still ongoing, although two have ended for unknown reasons.

13 years after the outbreak in Malton, what little is left of humanity is still trapped inside the walls. Jäger Schenkkan survives atop a skyscraper, subsisting from salvage and a rooftop farm of his own design. Having seen no other humans in several years, he is shocked one day to hear a high-pitched scream - and looks over the edge to see something he had not seen since the beginning of the outbreak - a child.
