How to Survive 2 Announced for Consoles

How to Survive 2, the follow-up to 2013’s How to Survive — probably better known to Xbox players by its complete edition, How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition — has been announced to be making its way from PC to consoles next month. For those who enjoy this type of game, it’s supposed to offer more of the same zombie survival goodness with even more content, as well as a budget price tag.

Multiplayer: Invite up to 16 players to access your camp and 4 of you can play together simultaneously.
Randomized environments: from the unforgiving bayous of the Mississippi Delta to the abandoned streets of New Orleans’ French Quarter.
Character customization: customize your own looks and learn new and different skills to specialize as you level up and equip with scavenged and handcrafted armor, tools and weapons.
Teamwork: all players can contribute to a bigger, better camp and can perform co-op actions and strategies.
Survival: If the hordes of undead humans and animals don’t kill you, thirst or exhaustion will.
Crafting: new deeper crafting system will allow you to use items and materials to create hundreds of items, tools and weapons to upgrade your character and your base camp.
Camp building: secure your shelter choosing from a wide upgradeable variety of traps, barricades, obstacles and workshops that will unlock new recipes and allow you to create more materials and items.

While the exact date hasn’t been pinned down yet, developer Eko Software and publisher 505 Games will be releasing How to Survive 2 just next month in February. The asking price will be US$14.99 / €14.99 / £11.99. When it becomes available for pre-order on Xbox Live and PSN, players who pre-order will receive “two free pieces of DLC content, which will unlock pets, headgear, and an upgradable weapons that your characters can equip.”
