Video: 10 State of Decay 2 tips to stay alive

With these tips, you too could be using a giant zombie as a climbing frame.

If the zombies don’t get you in State of Decay 2, then the boastful barista will. Sure, he brews a mean cup of joe, but his self-confidence is beginning to grate and the community’s morale is sinking. This might be the first survival game to be derailed by a braggart with coffee breath. As such it can feel like the world is conspiring against you, so what better time to watch a video of tips and tricks to help even the odds.

Video: Watch us kill zombies (and a few survivors) in State of Decay 2 co-op

state of decay 2 coop (2)

Zombie survival adventure State of Decay 2 lurches on to PC next Tuesday – though it’s out today for those who ordered the Ultimate edition – and Brendan kindly put aside his endless shopping trips to help me test co-op mode. Opt for a multiplayer session and you appear as visiting survivors in the host’s game, in this case, Brendan’s.

State Of Decay’s Remastered Year One Edition Released

I realise it’s somewhat passé to compare a game to Dark Souls but look, State of Decay [official site] really is reminding me of Dark Souls. No, no, this is nothing to do with difficulty or death or mystery or structure: it’s about revamp-o-rereleases.

Like Dark Souls II’s Scholar of the First Sin, State of Decay’s Year One Survival Edition is the base game and its DLC expanded and touched up a little for the new generation of consoles. Like SotFS, it comes to PC as a separate release rather than an upgrade. And like SotFS, it seems like a fine jumping-on point for new players but perhaps not worth buying again if you had the original.

Reanimated: State Of Decay Revamped For Rerelease

The heck is Jeff Goldblum doing in the zombie apocalypse?

When our Adam asked “Have You Played… State of Decay?” he noted that the open-world zombie survive ’em up had become a lot better in the year since its release, thanks largely to its ‘Breakdown’ DLC. What we here at RPS have apparently neglected to mention so far is that developers Undead Labs are revamping State of Decay for a prettied-up rerelease with its DLC bundled in as the Year One Survival Edition. Oh! Well, they are. And now they’ve announced a release date. Unfortunately, it won’t come as an upgrade, only sold separately.
