Here's some good news for all zombie lovers: Undead Labs has announced that they will be releasing “State of Decay 2” on Steam next year.

The revelation is part of their holistic vision to be a “fan-first studio” and at the same time, making true to their ongoing dedication to serve the gaming community and listen to the feedback of their followers.

Undead Labs added that a Steam-based “State of Decay 2” is one of their “top requests.” They can't say no, to say the least, and went on to unveil its forthcoming in early 2020.

Among others, “State of Decay 2” on Steam will highlight Xbox Live cross-play that will enable players to group up to three survivors across Steam, Windows 10 or Xbox One.

Additional details, including the price, has yet to be shared, although Engadget said players can already add “State of Decay 2” on their Steam wishlist.

Polygon, meanwhile, pointed that “State of Decay 2” is not the first Microsoft game to jump into the Steam bandwagon: “Gears 5” and “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” are some of the top favorites, as well as “Killer Instinct” that also offered the same cross-play feature.

For those that don't know, “State of Decay 2” is an open-world survival fantasy game set in a post-apocalyptic world that's riddled with zombies. Players can group to three and will help each other build their civilization amidst the horror.

Of course, as with all survival games, players will have to upgrade their base's defenses, scavenge for food and ammunition and interact with the environment.

“Every player's experience in the game is unique. Each character in your community has their own special set of skills and traits, so no two communities are ever the same,” said Steam.

It also added that challenges will vary from game to game and will rely on who you recruit and the decisions you make as the game progresses.

The first “State of Decay” was released on June 2013 on the Xbox 360. After several rousing reviews, a Windows version was released three months later through Steam's Early Access. “State of Decay 2” on the other hand was announced live via Xbox's E3 in 2016 and was then released on May of last year.
