Despite some rough patches, State of Decay made its mark as a memorable zombie survival sandbox game with some genuinely interesting ideas. I wasn't as head over heels with it as some of you surely were, but I am looking forward to this year's sequel on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, definitely.
A recent pair of blog posts out of Undead Labs has placed State of Decay 2 back on my radar.
The first post -- which is said to be a four-parter! -- covers the survivors. "Just as in the original State of Decay, you don't play as any one individual," says the studio. "Instead, you're a community of survivors, all of whom have their own unique combination of appearance, traits and needs. It's up to you to manage and satisfy these needs while executing your strategy in pursuit of not just surviving, but instilling belief among your community that tomorrow will be a better day."
