Before the outbreak Maxim lived somewhere in Novaya Petrovka, Chernarus.
Maxim's father died when he was 3 years old so his mother took care of him most of his life.
Maxim had work to do in Chernarus so he will stay there for a while.
One morning, Maxim was watching television and the news said that there was a virus spreading across Chernarus and everyone in the country must evacuate.
Maxim thought he should go back to Ukraine but it was too late because the country is in panic and there won't be any plane services.
Maxim heard screaming outside of his house so he went outside to see the whole town was in panic.
Some people were driving their cars out of the town and some were running out of the town.
Maxim saw zombies chasing people so he must find somewhere safe to stay because that town his living is already filled with zombies.
Maxim quickly ran back to his house and packed some food and drinks then he ran to the forest, hoping he could find a place that is safe enough to stay.
