Watch Us Smash Zombies In State Of Decay 2

State of Decay 2, the followup to 2013's surprisingly good base-building survival game, is out soon. How does the new game stack up?

In the video above, I drive around the world with editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo, decapitate some corpses, and talk a little bit about our experience with the game so far.


Our official review of State of Decay 2 is coming soon.
