Developer Undead Labs has posted a new piece of concept art for the upcoming zombie game sequel, State of Decay 2, and it's completely brutal and bloody.

The image, published on the game's website, shows a survivor who defied the odds and took down an entire horde of undead with a baseball bat. Undead Labs acknowledges that one person taking down that many zombies with a baseball bat is pretty unlikely. But the developer said it "loved the expression of numb weariness and exhausted triumph on the survivor's face. And besides, success against the odds is also something that’s important to illustrate for State of Decay 2."

This piece of art, which was created by an outside illustrator, Stephen Schirle, was created "long before" production began on State of Decay 2. What you see in the image may not represent what will actually be in the game,.

Undead Labs sent Schirle a list of phrases that they wanted him to turn into art such as "Nobody Survives Alone," "Faded Memories," and "Horrific Beauty." The concept art posted here was his take on the phrase "Explore and Complete Missions." The particular mission in this case was "defeat a horde."

New concept art for State of Decay 2 is released every week. You can see the concept art that Undead Labs released in the five previous weeks here, here, here, here, and here.

State of Decay 2 was announced back at E3 2016 for Xbox One and PC. It's a four-player co-op game, rather than the MMO Undead had discussed previously.

All we've heard about State of Decay 2 so far is that its world will be "substantially larger" than the first game's and that it will allow co-op players to split up.

Earlier this month, Undead Labs confirmed that State of Decay 2 will show up during Microsoft's E3 2017 briefing in June.
