While Sea of Thieves might have been stealing all the headlines recently, it’s not the only Xbox exclusive coming in the next few months. One of the other big games coming soon from Microsoft is State of Decay 2. The follow-up to 2013’s genre-bending survival-horror, action adventure, perma-death hit, the sequel is going all out with 4 player online co-op and improved visuals thanks to the use of Unreal Engine 4. (after the original used CryEngine 3) The visual improvement can particularly be seen in two new screenshots shared on the State of Decay official Twitter account. Check them out via their original Tweets below –
Smashing through windows is a pretty core feature in SOD, and this window is just begging to be shattered. But beware, there’s no telling how many zeds will be attracted to the sound. – Matt Heiniger, technical artist #Undeadlabs #Microsoftstudios #SOD2 pic.twitter.com/TD8M9nkXm8

A peaceful scene in any other world – the serenity of snow-capped mountains above the meadows, and the hush of a sacred site. But even here monsters lurk, and the living fight the unrestful dead for survival. It's beautiful, but we can never let down our guard. pic.twitter.com/xdPsmEi1dF
