Check out 25 minutes of State of Decay 2’s co-op

It may not be as massively as some might have liked, but State of Decay 2’s co-op mode opens up the franchise to multiplayer fun for the first time. With the game coming out this May, renewed attention is being given to this zombie survival title and what it has to offer the gaming public.

IGN posted a 25-minute developer tour in which the team showed off State of Decay 2’s new co-op mode. In it, four players team up to shoot zombies with extreme prejudice and scavenge a world that’s full of useful items for the discerning packrat.

Check it out after the jump!

A large part of the fun in State of Decay came out of the fact that the original game was about community management. I can’t help but feel like that aspect would be lost or dumbed down in coop. I’d prefer a more competitive Civilization-style multiplayer mode that involved racing to get scarce resources before other the players snatch them up while trying not to overextend yourself. The thrills of SoD came from those moments when you had to choose whether to take risk while scavenging or run back home with what you had already picked up. I can imagine that feeling intensified when you suspect that the guy you’re sneaking past is actually a player with unpredictable human intelligence.

This game is on my very short list of games I look forward to.

I’m looking forward to playing this, but did Andrew Dice Clay write the script for the character dialogue?

I’m super excited for this game. I loved the first one despite its flaws, and the gameplay was just crying out for multiplayer.
