(Disclaimer: Yes, I know that there are npcs in maps like Russia on U3, but they just give you quests from what I’ve seen. But ive never interacted with the npcs myself, so you can tell me more about them if I’m wrong about something.)
I’m a big fan of Unturned but I feel theres a big problem with the game’s immersion, as there’s a lack of npcs for a post-apocalyptic game. As a Fallout fan, a lack of enemy npcs or companions in U3 really bores me, as it kills the immersion in my opinion and makes me feel that I am the world and not a part of the world. If there are plans for more npcs, I hope there is at least some kind of scavenger faction, so that way it does’nt just increase immersion, it also adds many gameplay possibilites and maybe have possibilites to get good loot, depending on how strong and well equipped the enemies are.
