The game has gotten tons of official support and updates since its launch nearly three years ago, but mods also help to keep the game alive with an active player base.

The mod looks great regardless and might be right up your alley if you're looking for a different look when playing State of Decay 2. However, those who are eagerly waiting for State of Decay 3 may realize that this snow mod brings State of Decay 2 a little bit closer to the nailbiting teaser trailer for State of Decay 3.
