State of Decay 2 (May 22)
Best Xbox One Games to Have on Your Radar in May 2018
Undead Labs put itself on the map with the release of the original State of Decay back on the Xbox 360 and PC. Players find themselves in a world overrun by the undead, and must find survivors, gather resources, build and develop a safe haven, and, of course, kill a bunch of zombies along the way. The gameplay loop can get fairly repetitive if you don’t like the idea of scavenging a huge area, and inventory management is a key part of the experience with it being a survival game, but there’s something compelling about it all.
If you liked the original, or just like the sound of it, State of Decay 2’s Xbox One release on May 22 should be at the top of your list. Though the core experience has largely remained untouched, you’ll now be able to go scavenging and surviving out in the wilderness with your friends in co-op. Plus, there are even some new zombie variants to try and make your life that little more difficult as you try and destroy the Plague Hearts that have brought the undead to this land. If you’re after an immersive survival title for your Xbox One in May, look no further.
