State of Decay 2 gets new gameplay trailer showcasing base building and zombie smashing

State of Decay 2 is coming out in a couple of months and Undead Labs keeps on dropping new information about the game. A few weeks ago, we learned that State of Decay 2 ran at 4K resolution on Xbox One X. Today, we got a new trailer from PAX East 2018 showcasing new gameplay and visuals.

Not only do the controls seem more polished, but there are other mechanics like stealth, base building, staff management, and driving which look better than ever. It's clear that Undead Labs has taken the additional time to iron out the bugs which plagued early builds of the game. It's a shame that State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition didn't receive such polish when it launched a few years ago.

State of Decay 2 should launch on May 22, 2018 for Xbox One and Windows 10 as an Xbox Play Anywhere experience. According to Microsoft, the game will also be available at launch on Xbox Game Pass. The company confirmed a price point of $29.99 for the standard version and $49.99 for an ultimate edition.

State of Decay 2 is a co-op multiplayer game which forces you to survive in the wake of a zombie apocalypse. Players have to work together, build bases, and form communities if they wish to survive in this hostile land. The first game — despite the fact that it suffered from numerous performance issues — garnered a significant following. Hopefully State of Decay 2 will be an intriguing experience when it launches in a few months.
