After last night's party, the Hero wakes up in a bedroom. The player now has control of the Hero. The room can be explored, and luggage or other containers can be searched in order to obtain useful objects such as cash. Afterwards, the player can leave the room and go in the hallway.
The hallway is a good place for looting because the player can search among many luggages. They cannot go straight to the balcony or the elevator yet as the player is blocked by a pair of luggage carts; they have to find a way around them by entering a room.
In the first room to the left the player can see the Father and Mother corpses from the game trailer on the floor. There is also the axe that the Father used to fight zombies in the trailer, but the player cannot pick it up. Another interesting fact is that there are no holes in the window in which the infected Daughter falls through (probably an oversight by the developers).
When the Hero finally arrives at the balcony, a cutscene is triggered: the Hero takes a look at the scenery and witnesses two people falling from the balcony above.
It is recommended to loot every container before heading to the elevator. To open the elevator's hatch, hold the prompted button until it opens.
The Hero gets inside the elevator, but it soon starts falling. The elevator briefly stops at a floor with two Infected who immediately run for the player when they notice it. Luckily, the elevator falls again before the Infected can enter.
The elevator finally stops at a final floor. The Voice makes his first appearance by attempting to assist the Hero. He first tells them to head to the maintenance room to get a weapon. The elevator door opens, allowing the player to proceed.
As the Hero gets to the hallway, the Voice says that a few Infected have seen the player; he tells them to run to the door in front of them. Fighting the Infected with bare hands is impossible because are high-leveled (about level 50); this is why the game prompts the player to run away instead of fighting.
Another cutscene plays as the Hero nears the maintenance room. The player quickly slams the door shut, but only to find a zombie who knocks the player unconscious. Fortunately, the Hero is saved by John Sinamoi and James Stein, who take the Hero to the Pool House.
"Chaos Overture" is a song by Swedish death metal band Arch Enemy.
