505 Games and Eko Software have announced today that How to Survive 2, the cult Zombie Co-Op Crafting Survival game, is coming to consoles in February 2017 after a successful release on Steam back in September 2016. Sequel to the multi-million selling How to Survive, the game is set 15 years after the first game and players now find themselves trying to survive a massive Zombie infestation in Louisiana.

15 Years on and the local infection that started in Los Riscos’ archipelago has now turned into a worldwide pandemic. Everyone around the world, groups of people or lone wolves, try to survive one more day among the infected, attempting to recover a semblance of normal life. You find yourself in Louisiana and your survival chance starts by building a safe camp and becoming a skilled survivalist.

Key Features.

  • Teamwork: all players can contribute to a bigger, better camp and can perform co-op actions and strategies.
  • New improved camera follows your character, allowing you to zoom in and out on the fly!
  • New randomized environments: from the unforgiving Mississippi Delta bayous to the abandoned streets of New Orleans’ French Quarter.

Although at this stage there is no word of a console version on the cards, the success of the first title in the series could indicate a repeat of form, with a console version appearing quite soon after its pc release.
