The new game mode is being described as a "replayable zombie siege experience," but we all know they're just trying to avoid saying "horde mode." Here's what they're saying about it:

Independence Pack DLC Adds New Vehicles and Weapons to State of Decay 2Jason Love

The DLC costs $4.99 (or free if you got the Ultimate Edition of the game) and not only adds three new vehicles, but also three melee weapons (The Freedom Ringer, Grillmeister, and BBQ Fork), two ranged weapons (Pyro Launcher and Starshank Launcher), and some festive decoys that spray fireworks all over.

There are hundreds of games now that fall into the “survival game” genre, but in my opinion, very few pack the narrative “oomph” to push them into something engaging (I can only collect 10 sticks to build an axe so many times). This is where I think State of Decay 2 sets itself apart. It’s an extremely focused survival...

I was a big fan of the original State of Decay when it dropped in the summer of 2013 and sunk a decent amount of time into it. It was a game that, at the time, definitely felt like it should have co-op. 5 years later, that idea has finally been realized in State of Decay 2.

Both of the videos can be found below, with the first featuring “found footage” of a coach talking about survival, and the latter a nurse who struggles with infected patients and fellow survivors. Both of the trailers are intense and carry the dirty survival feeling that State of Decay 2 brings with it.

On the Co-Op end of things, right after the 55:00 minute mark, questions are asked about whether or not multiplayer will be ready to go from day one, which, thankfully, it is. The developer then elaborates that multiplayer is peer-to-peer as opposed to being hosted on servers, so it should all be smooth. The full video (clocking in at an hour and nine minutes) can be found below as well as on the official YouTube here.

State of Decay released across Xbox 360 and PC in 2013 and later came to Xbox One. While the first title was single player only, the sequel is set to feature 4-Player Drop-In / Drop-Out Co-Op upon its release on May 22nd 2018. The video below covers everything from base sizes and locations, watchtowers, using doors, zombie sieges and more, but at the 21:00 minute mark the team addresses Co-Op specifically, talking about how base building allows players joining a friend’s world to use the friend’s presumably higher leveled base to make supplies.

Collector's Editions have been a staple of the industry, usually offering a variety of themed goodies for the die hard fans of a particular title or series. In that sense, the State of Decay 2 Collector's Edition is very much in line with the rest. It includes a zombie mask (that may or may not fit on your cat's head), a "thumb" drive (it's shaped like a severed thumb), a SteelBook case in which to put the disc of the game, a brain-shaped stand in which to put the SteelBook case, and an iron-on patch. Not a bad offering of things if you're interested, but one point does stand out.

It'll be out for both Windows 10 and Xbox One on May 22nd, and this time, the game will feature online co-op for up to four players.  The folks over at IGN got the chance to spend about half an hour with said co-op, which you can check out below.

There wasn't a lot given away in the brief five minute segment, but Jeff does mention that the title will support drop-in/drop-out online co-op so your friends are free to join you anytime. He also described a setting you can enable that doesn't have an official name yet, but Jeff described it as way to tag yourself as "willing to help." What this means is that if some other player (could be someone you know, or just some random fellow zombie fighter) gets into trouble, they can send up a flare to ask for help. Anyone that has enabled that "willing to help" feature, then, will get a notification in their game that someone requires assistance and they can push a button to hop into that person's game and help out.

Imagine my (and presumably many others') joy when the game's follow-up was announced to have four player online co-op!  We don't know a tremendous deal about State of Decay 2, aside from a potential 2017 release window, but our friends over at IGN had the chance to speak with the Undead CEO, Jeff Strain, and confirm some new details about the open-world title.

The title was revealed during the Microsoft E3 press conference and teased the idea that "Nobody Survives Alone." After the conference, we got a few more details about what that meant.
