Earlier this week, State of Decay 2 developer Undead Labs confirmed it would share some news about the mysterious zombie sequel at Microsoft’s E3 2017 briefing in June. You don’t have to wait until then to know a little more about the game, however, as new concept art has come online.
Posted on the Undead Labs website, the newest image (concept art is released every week) shows a rural setting featuring train tracks and an “industrializing tone.” The “super early” artwork is dark and moody, and is meant to make you curious about the world around it. It looks pretty awesome, but don’t expect to see this exact scene in the game; it’s only a reference of sorts.
“This image shows a really early (as in before we even announced to the community) exploration into what a more industrial area might look like in State of Decay 2,” Undead Labs said. “We were feeling our way through the process of keeping the rural vibe, but add in a little more industrialization. While this exact scene does not appear in the game, you will see elements like factories and railroad tracks.”
