State of Decay 2 developer promises to fix many bugs on Xbox One and PC before launch
State of Decay 2 contains a lot of bugs and other problems.
State of Decay 2 is coming out in a few weeks, and Microsoft gave us an in-depth look at the game. However, while the title is a complex experience, the build we tested was filled with bugs and other issues. Considering that there isn't much time left until State of Decay 2 launches, this is troubling to say the least.
In an interview between Metro and Undead Labs Design Director Richard Foge, the bugs and other problems were discussed at great length. The developer promised to fix a lot of the issues before launch, and to continue improving the experience after that.
Hopefully State of Decay 2 will arrive in a polished state for launch, and avoid the jank of its predecessor. However, it seems like a lot of the bugs will be squashed later down the line. This might present a problem when it comes to review scores and player enjoyment.
State of Decay 2 should launch on May 22, 2018 for Xbox One and PC as an Xbox Play Anywhere experience. According to Microsoft, the game will also be available at launch on Xbox Game Pass. The company confirmed a price point of $29.99 for the standard version and $49.99 for an ultimate edition.
Aside from that, developer Undead Labs confirmed that there are no plans to add microtransactions to the game even though the title starts at $29.99. Despite the fact that there are no plans at the moment, microtransactions might be added in the future to sustain development.
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. The first game — despite the fact that it suffered from numerous performance issues — garnered a significant following.
