How to Survive 2 for PC, PS4 and XONE is a sequel to the popular survival horror game How to Survive. The game is set in the state of Louisiana, where you have to fight for survival with zombies in New Orleans. While the first installment in the series took place on four Colombian islands, How to Survive 2 feels much more global.
The game takes place during a zombie apocalypse caused by some virus. Several months after the events of How to Survive, which took place on the Colombian archipelago, the epidemic has spread and become a global threat. The survivors need to abandon their present lives if they want to live a bit longer. To increase their chances, they form camps and search for water and food, as well as learn how to craft useful items. How to Survive 2 takes place in New Orleans in the state of Louisiana.
The gameplay of How to Survive 2 for PC, PS4 and XONE doesn't differ much from its predecessor. The game still utilizes an isometric view. However, the sequel places emphasis on the crafting system and character skill trees. To survive, you have to craft your own weapons, protect yourself from the infected, and make sure you have water, food, and shelter. Of course, the game also features fighting with zombies.
How to Survive 2 features both singleplayer and multiplayer modes. In the multiplayer mode, the players organize their camps, where they can take shelter from zombies. Each camp can consist of up to 16 players, while the co-op mode can include only up to 4 players. Compared to the first installment, the multiplayer mode has been expanded—in How to Survive, it could include only two players at once.
