Niche Gamer Plays – State of Decay 2

Niche Gamer Plays is an ongoing video preview series where our staff take an in-depth and yet concise look at classic, current, and upcoming games across all current gaming platforms.

We got the chance to play some of the newly launched State of Decay 2, the zombie survival sandbox action game from Undead Labs.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


How Will You Survive?

Small-Town America, one year from today. The dead have risen, and civilization has fallen. Even the military couldn’t stop the zombies, and now humanity stands on the brink of extinction. It’s up to you to gather survivors and build a community, explore your lasting legacy, and redefine what it means to survive.

The ultimate open world zombie survival game.

In State of Decay 2, your base is more than just a place for your survivors to sleep at night. It’s your sanctuary, offering protection against the hungry dead lurking beyond the wall. It’s your command post, where you plan the perfect zombie-killing strategies. Most of all, it’s a manifestation of your personal long-term survival strategies as you customize it with your ideal facilities and improvements. Will you build a watch tower or plant a garden? An infirmary or a workshop? How will you choose to carve out a small slice of civilization from the chaotic apocalypse?

Key Features:

  • An open-world adventure
    It’s up to you to build your base, develop your characters, and manage resources to survive as a group in this post-apocalyptic zombie world.
  • RPG progression
    Develop each survivor’s skills to improve their capabilities and strengthen your community.
  • Four player co-op multiplayer
    Play solo or team up with up to three friends to explore an open world filled with dynamic zombies, human enemies, and the valuable gear necessary to keep your community alive.
  • Your choices define your survival story
    In the zombie apocalypse, you must create your own moral code. Every decision has lasting consequences that you must face. How you decide to survive may surprise you

State of Decay 2 is now available for Windows PC (Windows 10 only) and Xbox One.
