State of Decay 2, the upcoming sequel to 2013’s well-received survival horror zombie game, will feature three maps when the game launches with each map ‘roughly the size of the original’, as revealed by developer Undead Labs in a new blog post.
Speaking about the decision to feature three separate maps rather than one single giant map, the developer said:
‘Why’d we do it that way? Well, primarily, because it makes the game more fun. It really feels like you’re moving from one small town to another, and creates a tremendous sense of immersion. And perhaps counter-intuitively, it makes the world feel even bigger.’
State of Decay 2 will be available on Xbox One and PC later this year.
