6. State of Decay 2 (2018)
‘State of Decay 2’ is the direct sequel to the stealth based survival video game developed by Undead Labs and published by Microsoft Studios in the year 2018 for Microsoft Windows PC and Xbox One platforms. It manages to build on the concepts of the original game and polishes the combat mechanics, which seemed a bit clunky to be honest. However, the premise of the game remains the same: survive with a team of friends in a world that’s being taken over by zombies. It retains focus on scavenging mechanics where you need to search and explore the wide open game world for resources and crafting components. You also need to be stealthier in your approach as the zombies seem more intelligent and are able to trace you out more effectively. This was again a complaint from gamers which has been improved upon.
Crafting items in the game also seem quite fluid with the user interface being enhanced from the previous version. It now feels a lot more intuitive and things can be done faster. Multiplayer aspects of the game are also on point. It becomes extremely fun to choose the different playable characters, all with their unique abilities and then join a group of goofy friends in order to shoot some zombies. At times, the game can get quite intense as you will find a horde of zombies on your tail simply because you deviated from the path and got detected by that one loner creep. We definitely recommend this game to you if you like survival games like ‘7 Days to Die’ due to the varied gameplay mechanics and the amount of customization options.
5. Mist Survival (2018)
‘Mist Survival’ is another popular zombie based survival game developed and published by Rati Wattanakornprasit in the year 2018. The game is entirely single player and no plans for a multiplayer support have been announced till date. It is still in the early access stage, so nothing can be said as of now. However, going by the recent press releases by the developers, it seems they plan to keep the game entirely a single player experience. This is based on their plans to improve the AI and introduce new types of enemies in the game instead of a multiplayer focused approach. However, we all know that games tend to become much more immersive when it is single player, so we are not judging. Also, going by the recent reviews on Steam, it seems like the game is generating a lot of positive response from fans. We have a lot of high hopes for the final release of this one and hence highly recommend players of games like ‘7 Days to Die’ to try it out and provide feedback.
