State of Decay 2 features dynamically-generated survivors. According to Undead Labs, State of Decay 2 is a game where you tell the story of your zombie apocalypse, alongside up to 3 of your friends. Just as in the original State of Decay, you don’t play as any one individual. Instead, you’re a community of survivors, all of whom have their own unique combination of appearances, traits and needs.

There is also a greater emphasis on realism this time so don’t expect many survivors to be wearing horns and body armor. In order to create realistic faces, more than 100 friends and family members, and developers and members of the community, went through a face scanning process! All of this creates a believable world because realism enhances immersion.
