“State of Decay 2” release date will be known soon in the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017. The game is already available for pre-order despite no actual release date.

The “State of Decay” sequel is an upcoming multi-player survival game. Many fans are wondering what this next franchise of the game will bring. According to reports, the new game will include a bigger world compared to the first instalment. In addition to this, a four-player cooperative multiplayer platform has been added into the game. This will apparently help build a lasting community that will have players work together to overcome challenges in the game. On the other hand, players may also play solo to overcome challenges. With the exploration in the game, players will make their own unique stories as certain choices are made.

Multiplayer gameplay

There are a number of fans wondering what the game will be bringing to its multiplayer mode. According to reports, players will be able to team up with three other players to survive the apocalypse. As it was mentioned earlier, the multiplayer mode can play up to four players. In addition to this information, studio maker of the game Jeff Strain mentions that players are not required to go online to be able to play the multiplayer mode. Strain adds that the multiplayer mode is designed to be used with ease among the players.


According to Trusted Reviews, players should expect a more refined and evolved gameplay compared to the first instalment of the game. Although players would still have to scavenge for resources and build communities, the multiplayer mode will allow for further teamwork. Everyone will be working together to maintain order before chaos will break out due to the zombies.

The main difference of the upcoming game will be the fact that there will not only be one protagonist. Each character in the game will have different stats and traits that can be used to play a role in the community. Since every character will get to choose its own traits, this will help a group to survive longer.

Release date and price

There is currently no specific release date available for “State of Decay 2.” However, according to Amazon, the game may be released on Dec. 29. This date is not set in stone as most of the games that will be released some time in 2017 with no exact date have this date. On the other hand, EB Games Australia offers a placeholder price of $99.95 for the Xbox One.
