State Of Decay 2
Back in 2013 UnDead Labs released the original State of Decay and it quickly became the best zombie survival game around. Sure it was a bit rough around the edges, but it worked beautifully.
Now it’s 2018 and the apocalypse is still going strong, and with the release of State of Decay 2 you can now bring some friends along to help kill the walking dead.
State of decay builds on 2013’s game, keeping all the good stuff like exploration, base building, community recruiting, zombie killing and of course, everyone’s favourite: premadeath. That’s right, if the character you’re currently controlling in State of Decay 2 dies, then it’s dead. Like for real. No going back to a previous save, no magical re-spawns. Dead means dead. So that character you just spent many hours working on, getting to know and basically creating an emotional attachment with, Yes that character you decided could handle one more house to explore before heading back to base for some rest. That character is never coming back. All the time and effort put into it, gone.
Whilst this may sound harsh to some, it’s the core of what makes State of Decay so good. Everything you do has consequences. In State of Decay 2 there is no storyline as such. You make your own narrative by the decisions you make. Help out a neighbour and you might get a new recruit for your community, or you might become friends with a new community. Realise you don’t have time to help a friendly community and they may just get mad at you, or worse, they may shoot at you.
Or you could just decide to be the only community in town all kill anyone you meet, zombie or human.
It’s really up to you.
Just make sure you’re ready for what follows any decisions you make. And always have a spare can of gas and a repair kit in the back of the car. Yes, in State of Decay 2, not only do weapons and equipment wear out and break, cars run on gas, and run out of gas. Life isn’t easy in a zombie apocalypse.
There’s many more new features I could go into in State of Decay 2, but I think you get the picture already. If you like the idea of a zombie survival game, enjoy a bit on inventory management, and wanna bring some friends along to help out – or even play solo, works just as good – then State of Decay 2 is going to supply you with many many many hours of fun, addictive and immersive gameplay.
