Recently at a preview event, we were treated to some hands-on gameplay time with State of Decay 2, and it looks as though it's shaping up extremely nicely indeed.

State of Decay 2 looks as though it could be the ultimate zombie apocalypse survival sim, tasking players to develop and manage a community of survivors in a world gone bad. Scavenge for supplies, improve your facilities, and face off against the undead hordes — the way you approach your bid for survival is up to you. However you choose to battle the undead, you can now for the first time bring in up to three friends to share the horror together.

Here's some of our hands-on footage with State of Decay 2, ahead of the game's launch on May 22, 2018.

Be sure to take a look at our official State of Decay 2 preview over here, and let us know whether you're planning to pick up the game!

State of Decay 2 launches on May 22 for Xbox One and Windows 10, as an Xbox Play Anywhere title for $29.99.
