State of Decay 2 now available on Xbox One and Windows 10

State of Decay 2, the long-awaited follow-up to 2013's first game in the series, is now available for Xbox One and Windows 10. The game is available to purchase at $29.99 as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, which allows you to play it on both platforms, or as part of Microsoft's $9.99 per month Xbox Game Pass subscription program.

Developed by Undead Labs and published by Microsoft Studios, State of Decay 2 puts players in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, forcing them to survive the undead and other survivors alike. The game is a co-op multiplayer experience, encouraging players to work together, build bases, and form communities in order to survive the trials of the world around them. The first game in the series garnered a loyal following, despite some performance issues. And, from what we've seen so far, State of Decay 2 builds on the same pieces of the original that made it great, while shunning some of its weaker points.
