A few months ago, State of Decay 2 launched to mixed reviews around the world. The game was praised for its deep mechanics, but the fact that it exhibited frame rate issues even on Xbox One X, and suffered from numerous glitches was a cause for concern. Undead Labs released a patch a few weeks later which fixed a lot of problems, but certain annoyances still remain. Surprisingly, this hasn't stopped the title from being enjoyed by countless gamers.
At X018, Microsoft revealed that State of Decay 2 crossed four million active players since its May 18, 2018 launch. This is a stunning achievement given how the title was initially portrayed. Active players means those who play each month, so overall player count should be higher. We hadn't heard much about State of Decay 2 for a while, so it's great to see that the game is doing so well. The prequel — 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.
The four million active players wasn't the only announcement from X018. Undead Labs also revealed the next content pack called "Zedhunter." Luckily, Zedhunter is now available for free to all players, even Xbox Game Pass subscribers! This new pack adds the powerful and silent crossbow along with additional melee weapons, facilities, blood plague consumables, and gameplay updates like the ability to reset your skills.
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 title at various retailers starting at $29.99, or play it for free if you're a $9.99 Xbox Game Pass subscriber.
