At its big E3 keynote today, Microsoft provided a better look at its upcoming Xbox One survival game State of Decay 2. The game, which was first revealed last year, expands on the original Xbox 360 game with an open-world setting and cooperative gameplay that forces you to survive the zombie apocalypse alongside other players. That includes fighting off the typical undead hordes, as well as giant zombies with glowing red eyes. The game will let players build their own shelters, while also dealing with other conditions like hunger and the weather.
Here’s how the developers describe the set-up:
18 months after the zombie apocalypse, the military abandons a refugee camp in small-town America. Those left behind must band together to survive the fall of civilization and the rise of the undead. In State of Decay 2, it’s up to you to gather survivors, build a community, and redefine what it means to survive.
State of Decay 2 will be exclusive to Xbox One and Windows 10, and will launch in spring 2018.
