Today, fans can test their zombie apocalypse plans as State of Decay 2 from Undead Labs launches worldwide in Xbox Game Pass and exclusively on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
State of Decay 2 is the ultimate zombie survival fantasy, where it’s up to you to decide how to survive in an open, post-apocalyptic world. State of Decay 2 takes everything you loved about the first game and greatly expands on it, giving you more unique survivor characters, more backstories and skills for each member, more community and base management options, and bigger maps to survive in. State of Decay 2 also adds one of the most-requested features from the community: cross-platform co-op.
You and up to three of your friends can survive together on Xbox One or Windows 10 PC and help develop a player’s community, and then everyone returns to their individual games with extra supplies and loot after playing in co-op. And as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, you’ll get both versions with one digital purchase, able to seamlessly switch between them, as all game progress including Gamerscore and achievements are saved on and accessible through Xbox Live.
To whet your appetite, look at some features revealed for State of Decay 2 on the recent episode of Inside Xbox. Below is a behind-the-scenes look at the game including commentary from Undead Labs Studio Head Jeff Strain and Design Director Richard Foge:
Also, to simulate the survival experience, we teamed up with Smosh Games and put a group of survivors in a State of Decay 2 Escape Room Challenge which you can have a look at here:
The standard edition of State of Decay 2 is available to Xbox Game Pass members ($9.99 monthly subscription) starting today, May 22. In addition, State of Decay 2 ($29.99) and State of Decay 2: Ultimate Edition ($49.99) can be purchased via the Microsoft Store or from your favorite retailer.
On behalf of Microsoft Studios and Undead Labs, we’re excited to welcome everyone to a new world of zombie-filled tension and survival drama in State of Decay 2. We can’t wait to see how you go about your conquest both alone and with friends! How will you survive?
