State of Decay fans are in for a treat from Microsoft, as a sequel of the game launched three years ago is coming to Windows 10 and Xbox One in 2017. The exact launch date is unknown, but the news alone is enough to make fans rub their hands with glee.

State of Decay 2 will heavily focus on multiplayer, judging by the “No one survives alone” tagline. Microsoft promises the game will be an all-new, multiplayer zombie survival fantasy. Your main tasks are to build a lasting community, work with other players or solo to overcome challenges while exploring your own unique story in a world where your choices have serious consequences.

State of Decay 2 builds upon the unique blend of open-world exploration, third-person action, and survival-fantasy role playing pioneered in the original State of Decay, and adds the top fan-requested feature – cooperative multiplayer. The world of State of Decay 2 is more dangerous and unpredictable than ever, so if you choose, you can work closely with up to three other players to build lasting communities and put your survival plan to the test.

As you advance throughout the game, you’ll explore a visually impressive world, where even the slightest details are visible thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 technology. State of Decay 2 is also one of the games that joined the Xbox Play Anywhere program, allowing players to buy the digital version and then play the game on both the Xbox One and Windows 10.

If you’re into zombie games, and you don’t want to wait until State of Decay is released, you can play The Escapists: The Walking Dead or Judge Dredd vs. Zombies. Of course, neither of these games bring the latest graphics, but they should do for a quick zombie killing session.

Speaking of zombies, there is another zombie hunting game that promises to be quite a blast: Dead Rising 4. For the time being, the existence of the game is only based on rumors, but we do believe there’s a seed of truth in them.
