Microsoft Creates Real Life State of Decay 2 Gaming Bunker To Promote Sequel
While Microsoft has lagged somewhat behind Sony in obtaining a greater market share of the gaming industry, they certainly have not shied away from throwing big events to promote their games and the Xbox platform. The company will soon be hosting a big FanFest event at E3 next month, and now it appears that they are celebrating the release of State of Decay 2 in a similar fashion. Microsoft has announced that they have created a real life State of Decay 2 gaming bunker to promote the new sequel that players can visit soon.
Microsoft released new details about this special State of Decay 2 event on their official Xbox Blog. This first ever Xbox gaming setup was originally used as a Quonset bunker in World War II to house military personnel, and has now equipped its 4,000 square feet with enough supplies, weapons and Xbox gaming hardware to survive the zombie apocalypse. The bunker will be welcoming visitors between Wednesday, May 16 to Sunday, May 20 from 10:00 a.m. PDT to 6:00 p.m. PDT on each day, and will have four stations set up for fans to try out State of Decay 2 for themselves.
The bunker also welcomed a special guest on May 15th who knows plenty about surviving a zombie apocalypse. The Walking Dead star Chandler Riggs was featured in a livestreamed episode of Xbox Live Sessions where he toured the facility and demonstrated the game. For the other visiting guests, Meals Ready to Eat (MREs) and BBQ dishes served up by a cook will be on hand to provide sustenance for the survivors.

Sadly, the registration required to enter the bunk during its five days of being open has already met capacity. Still, this is a very neat promotional event for the game, and zombie lovers can still catch State of Decay 2 when it releases on Xbox One and Windows on May 22nd. What do you guys think about this State of Decay 2 gaming bunker? Let us know in the comments below!
