Developer Undead Labs’ multiplayer zombie survival series, State of Decay 2, is, post a year and a half of Windows 10 Store specifically on PC, heading to Steam in advance next year. Actually launched in 2018, State of Decay 2 aimed to ace on everything that enthusiasts loved about its surprisingly famous forebear. However, as per Eurogamer contributor Edwin Evans-Thirwell at release, it frequently problematic to reach those goals.
“State of Decay 2 is a bad return on the scruffy promise of its predecessor,” as per Edwin in his review, “It tantalises with the thought of raggedy everyday heroes pooling their myriad talents to survive, only to quantify and busywork all that out of existence.”
However, instead of a less-than-stellar critical reception, State of Decay 2 still in a way drew the crowds, with Microsoft’s most recent figures, declared in August, unravelling the player base to be approximately 5 million strong.
Its prolonged popularity has made Undead Labs to expand and advance on its rocky release, so Edwin’s initial reservations may no longer be valid. Undead Labs is yet to declare a firm launch date for State of Decay 2 on Steam, but it has substantiated that Xbox Live cross-play will be assisted, permitting up to four co-op pals to band together instead of whether they are on Steam, Windows 10, or Xbox One.
