State of Decay 2 Confirmed

For the past two years, the team at Undead Labs has been building something truly special for the passionate State of Decay fans and zombie survival enthusiasts worldwide. State of Decay 2 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 PC as a retail and digital title in 2017!

State of Decay 2 is a full sequel with much higher ambitions than the original. The game promises to be a bigger, badder, bolder, smoother State of Decay that they can play with their friends.

State of Decay 2 builds upon the unique blend of open-world exploration, third-person action, and survival-fantasy role playing pioneered in the original State of Decay, and adds the top fan-requested feature – cooperative multiplayer. The world of State of Decay 2 is more dangerous and unpredictable than ever, so if you choose, you can work closely with up to three other players to build lasting communities and put your survival plan to the test. As with the original hit game, your choices will shape an interconnected world 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. And throughout the game, you’ll explore a visually stunning and richly detailed world, brought to life with Unreal Engine 4.

As an Xbox Play Anywhere title, one purchase will get you both the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC versions of the game. And with Xbox Live and cloud save support, your Achievements and progress sync between devices, so you can switch between them and retain your community and progress in the game.
