During the PAX East 2018 in Boston last weekend, developer Undead Labs showed us a new look on survival horror video game: State of Decay 2.
As the sequel of the first game, you will be in charge of the base, scavenging for supplies and maintain the survivability of your community from the undead. This time around, it’s set in the open-world environment and you can play with up to three players in cooperative gameplay.
State of Decay 2 is bolder than 2013’s State of Decay as it comes with various upgrades; from meeting up new characters, building strong outpost to withstand zombie attacks and featuring a large zombie that will certainly threaten the chance of survival for players in the game.
Ramming hordes of zombies using your car and opening your car’s door for extra damage on the zombies, like in the previous game, is still the highlight in this upcoming video game.
Adding to that, the new video displays new action in combat: particularly on the melee combat where you can climb up the zombie, swing around the back and stab them in the skull. Gnarly!
Check out the new gameplay video below:
Published by Microsoft and developed by Undead Labs, State of Decay 2 will unleash the zombies on May 22 for PC and Xbox One. You could also play the zombie survival game three days earlier with the purchase of Ultimate Edition.
