Now Playing: State of Decay 2 - Official E3 2016 Announcement Trailer

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.

State of Decay 2 was announced back at this year's E3 in June (watch the announcement trailer above). It's a four-player co-op game, rather than the MMO Undead had discussed previously.

The game is confirmed for 2017, but as mentioned, we're expecting to learn a specific date in June 2017, at E3. It's confirmed for at least PC and Xbox One. On those systems, it's an Xbox Play Anywhere game, letting those who buy it digitally play on both platforms.

Undead Labs also released a creepy holiday card today; check it out:

State of Decay was originally released in June 2013 for Xbox 360, before coming to PC in 2013. A version of the game called the Year One Survival Edition launched for Xbox One in 2015.
