State of Decay 2, an xbox exclusive, now has a 2018 release date planned after the initial date of 2017 was pushed back. In addition, it will be available to play on Gamepass on launch. The main revision to the gameplay this time around will be the inclusion of multiplayer. Undead labs, the developer, has stated, "The next instalment in the critically acclaimed State of Decay franchise immerses you in an all-new, multiplayer zombie survival fantasy. Build a lasting community, working with other players or solo to overcome challenges while exploring your own unique story in a world that remembers the choices you make." The game will launch with three maps, and as you battle for survival in the world, you'll be able to move your resources from map to map - making it easier for you to prepare and defend against the undead threat.
