State Of Decay 2 Announced, Adding Co-op

State of Decay developers Undead Labs today announced a sequel to their community-building zombie apocalypse survival game, coming to Windows 10 in 2017. The big feature for State of Decay 2 [official site] is online co-op, letting up to four players join up to romp around the end of human civilisation. Between this and Dead Rising 4’s announcement, it has been a good day for co-op zombiefun. Have a look at SoD2:

As before, State of Decay 2 is a sandbox survival game about building, expanding, fortifying and defending communities with NPC survivors. You’ll want to keep them safe, as if you die you can respawn into any NPC. Zombies aren’t the only threat, either – people can be real jebends after the apocalypse, I understand.

Undead Labs founder Jeff Strain says in their announcement:

“As with the original State of Decay, the world will remember the choices you make and form a unique experience every time you play. Alone or with friends, dynamic game systems for character progression, base building, leadership promotion, and consequence-driven storytelling will result in a dramatic experience that tests your will to survive.”

State of Decay 2 is due some time in 2017. It will be another ‘Xbox Play Anywhere’ game, which means that buying the game digitally on either Windows 10 or Xbone gets you the game on both. Yes, surely this will tie into Microsoft’s platform and store and whatnot.
