What the game is about
The Sate of Decay franchise first made it into consoles on June 5, 2013. During its outing on the Xbox 360 the game received positive reviews and also gained universal praise. Now the franchise is bringing its brand of Zombie Survival to another generation. The games developers, Undead Labs announces that State of Decay 2 is heading to Windows and Xbox One on May 22, 2018. The upcoming survival video game is set to immerse its players in a brand new, multiplayer zombie survival landscape. Everyone always wondered how they would do if a Zombie Apocalypse hits the world and State of Decay is the perfect avenue to live out that fantasy.
How it plays
State of Decay 2 takes cues from its predecessor. It contains aspects of third person combat with a hint of simulation. This game allows players to build bases and outposts to help them survive the hordes of zombies. In the game, the player leads a group of survivors in order to perform quests that will help them with their survival. As the leader, you have the choice to push the story forward or to duke it out and see how long you can survive.
When building a base, it’s up to the player to decide which location is optimal to call home. To reinforce and improve the bases players are allowed to build facilities like workshops, medbays and watch towers. The game is all about the optimal allocation of resources such as food, medicine, ammo, and materials. These can be obtained during scavenging and interactions with NPCs.
With the previous game having more than 150 characters available to add to the player’s roster, gamers can expect the same amount of characters to rescue and recruit. In fact there might even be more in the sequel. The franchise is positively loved by critics. In fact, it might be one of Undead Labs best games in their portfolio. It went as far as selling 1,000,000 copies world wild. That’s a lot of copies!
The Excitement of State of Decay 2
State of Decay 2 is set to bring a whole new level of zombie survival to the PC and XBOX One gamers everywhere. So get ready to survive and save the world from the zombie apocalypse in this amazing and exciting exclusive!
