With these tips, you too could be using a giant zombie as a climbing frame.

If the zombies don t get you in State of Decay 2, then the boastful barista will. Sure, he brews a mean cup of joe, but his self-confidence is beginning to grate and the community s morale is sinking. This might be the first survival game to be derailed by a braggart with coffee breath. As such it can feel like the world is conspiring against you, so what better time to watch a video of tips and tricks to help even the odds. Not to boast myself (RPS has a high morale community), but it ll make your life easier.

Zombie survival adventure State of Decay 2 lurches on to PC next Tuesday – though it s out today for those who ordered the Ultimate edition – and Brendan kindly put aside his endless shopping trips to help me test co-op mode. Opt for a multiplayer session and you appear as visiting survivors in the host s game, in this case, Brendan s. You can help said host progress their story and bring home whatever loot you find, but it s also fine if you just want to go for a jolly in the countryside and deck deadheads in tandem.

The first State of Decay game sold 4.5 million units. Did you know that? For sure I would have guessed wrong by three million units. But that’s not to say it didn’t deserve that attention. Building a functioning society post zombie-apocalypse and getting an incredibly layered series of management tools and interpersonal squad dynamics to work in such an entertaining way is no small accomplishment. The original game’s DLC dabbled in what could be, but a true sequel has been what I’ve been waiting for.

(Also I maybe ruined my settlement way too late in the game by accidentally betraying and murdering most of my fellow survivors and I was too prideful to start again. Get off my back. I just love betrayal sooooo much.)

State of Decay developers Undead Labs today announced a sequel to their community-building zombie apocalypse survival game, coming to Windows 10 in 2017. The big feature for State of Decay 2 [official site] is online co-op, letting up to four players join up to romp around the end of human civilisation. Between this and Dead Rising 4’s announcement, it has been a good day for co-op zombiefun. Have a look at SoD2:

State of Decay

Another rumour confirmed: State of Decay 2 has been announced at Microsoft's E3 conference (which has been unusually heavy on the zombies).

As is tradition, you'll venture into a zombie-infested, multiplayer world, tasked with ensuring your own survival and "exploring your own unique story in a world that remembers the choices you make". However, you'll also need to ensure the survival of others no lone wolfing, thanks.

State of Decay 2's settlement-building tools are noticeably improved. The overall look is also much, much prettier than the original, which shambled its way through Steam Early Access in 2013.

Pegged to arrive 2017, State of Decay 2 is another Universal Windows App, meaning it's "Windows 10 and Xbox exclusive".

State of Decay

State of Decay is full of dicks. In the process of upgrading the textures for the upcoming State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition, developer Undead Labs found masses of man-shafts hidden in the game's art.

"Some of our contractors worked a ridiculous amount of genitalia into the background," Undead Labs' senior designer Geoffrey Card told XBLA Fans. The towering total of tadgers aren't visible in the game itself—nor, it seems, in the PC version. The up-ressed textures of the game's improved special edition, however, brought the phalluses into focus.

Undead Labs was not aware of the textures in question until they began the process of exporting textures for State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition, and they are not visible in the original edition of State of Decay," a Microsoft representative told Game Informer. "Undead Labs is no longer working with the contractor in question, and this material will not be present in State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition.

That they aren't visible in the original version suggests that either the textures are further improved for the Year-One re-release, or that they're placed in locations that are hidden from player view—only rising into view as the dev team comb through the original assets. Maybe a modder could, er, root out the rods.

State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition is due out on PC (and Xbone) later this year.
