The popular top-down action shooter was released back in December 2011 and was last updated in December 2013. With the launch of its sequel, SAS: Zombie Assault 4 (featured in the trailer below), in October 2014, the game was widely thought to have been abandoned.
But the release of its 3.0 update, seemingly out of the blue, proves otherwise.
Most notably, SAS: Zombie Assault 3 3.0 boasts support for squads. Now, you can create or join squads, which can be open (anyone can join), closed (requests only), or locked (invites only).
As part of a squad, you can chat with other members, participate in Zombie-Rush events, and earn SAS Bucks.

SAS Bucks, by the way, are introduced in the new version of SAS: Zombie Assault 3 as a new form of in-game currency for purchasing premium items. Aside from being earned via gameplay, SAS Bucks can be bought using real money via in-app purchase.
The new version of SAS: Zombie Assault 3 also introduces limited-time tournaments and new player profiles.
