About this game
Developer: Undead Labs
Content Rating: Mature
ow Will You Survive? The dead have risen and civilization has fallen. Not even the military could stop the zombies, and now it's up to you to gather survivors and build a community in a post-apocalyptic world – a world where every decision matters, and where you define what it means to survive. State of Decay 2 is the ultimate zombie survival game in an open world where you and up to three friends build a community of survivors. It’s up to you to establish a base, develop your characters’ abilities, and manage resources to survive as a group in a world where choices matter and every decision has lasting consequences. Every player’s experience is unique - as you play, the open world responds to your decisions, developing in real time and dynamically offering new opportunities for you to demonstrate your own personal survival priorities. These decisions also result in real consequences that affect your community. Send your best scavenger across the map to gather medicine for a sick friend... but know that they might not make it home. Help your neighbors, and you might make new allies... or you could decide that you need their food supply more than they do. In the end, how you survive might surprise you.

Despite being a bit of a mess, I continue to find myself entranced by it and continuously coming back for more. It’s a surprisingly deep and rich survival RPG that you’ll be hard pressed to find another like it, especially at the lowered price point. It can be a stressful and frustrating adventure through undead infested territories, but it’s loaded with a lot of charm, and the cooperative play adds a whole new level of enjoyment. With some modifications and continuous work, State of Decay 2 could be a great and meaningful experience, but in its current state, it’s far from the best zombie game out there.
Zombie fatigue in popular culture can sometimes feel as widespread a disease as the blood plague itself, but by sticking to its guns and delivering on a smarter breed of zombie game, State of Decay 2 is a potent reminder of why the undead continue to be such a rich source for interactive entertainment.
State of Decay 2’s zombie-infested maps are good places to scavenge, fight, and survive in. Combat is satisfyingly brutal and the special zombies inspire some real fear of permanent death, even though the Blood Plague turns out to be more of a sniffle. But the bugs are just as persistent as the zombies, and after a dozen or so hours the repetition of both eventually take their toll, making the appeal of replaying feel more limited than I’d expected for a sandbox RPG.
