A week ago, State of Decay 2 launched to mixed reviews. The game was praised for its deep mechanics, but the fact that it exhibited frame rate issues on Xbox One X and suffered from numerous glitches was a cause for concern. Surprisingly, that hasn’t stopped the game from being enjoyed by numerous gamers around the world. This morning, Microsoft announced that State of Decay 2 crossed a million players since its May 18, 2018 launch.
As we close out our first week of the zombie apocalypse, we wanted to welcome and say thank you to the over one million fans playing State of Decay 2, helping break the million player mark, and answering the question: how will you survive? Since Early Access for the Ultimate Edition on May 18 and the global release of the Standard Edition on May 22, we have had over a million survivors across the globe playing and creating their own zombie survival story. Throughout launch, there have been over six million combined hours of State of Decay 2 gameplay, and we’ve watched nearly 3.5 million hours of gameplay across Mixer, Twitch and YouTube Gaming from over 41,000 unique broadcasts.
Despite that, it’s great to see State of Decay 2 do so well at launch. The first game — regardless of the fact that it suffered from numerous performance issues — garnered a significant following. It appears that the sequel is also popular even though it needs more polish. Hopefully Undead Labs will continue to optimize the experience in the months to come.
State of Decay 2 is a co-op multiplayer game which forces you to survive in the wake of a zombie apocalypse. Players have to work together, build bases, and form communities if they wish to survive in this hostile land. You can currently purchase the game on Amazon or the Microsoft Store, starting at $29.99, or play it for free if you’re a $9.99 monthly Xbox Game Pass subscriber.
