Playing as a community of survivors gives you a myriad of options.
Where will you settle your community? Who will you recruit to join your ultimate survival team? What characters and skills will you invest in? And will you choose the legacy of a Warlord, Sheriff, Trader, or Builder?
When playing State of Decay 2, you control a group of survivors.
This is your community.
You can find people to help (and possibly recruit) over the airwaves.
Build the facilities you want to customize your base.
