  • The game is based on theUnreal Engine 5and for the co-op/multiplayer component, Undead Labs is receiving support from the developers at Obsidian (Fallout: New Vegas, Grounded, Avowed) thanks to Microsoft’s patronage.
  • State of Decay 3 is set further in the future than its two predecessors. And this is reflected, for example, in the look of the zombies: they continue to decompose and are hardly more beautiful to look at.
  • We continue to defend ourselves against the undead with firearms, melee weapons and … car doors, as the new cinematic trailer makes clear.
