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. Luckily, the developer just released another patch which brings some long-awaited changes.

Patch 4.0 features many significant quality-of-life improvements and a host of bug fixes that solve confusing or frustrating issues. You can read about the major tweaks below.

  • Removed some locks and crashes associated with pop-up boxes.
  • Fixed a handful of buildings that were inaccessible due to collision.
  • Random "resource loss" events are now dependent on morale and traits.
  • Characters who incur resource loss events because of low morale will now receive a temporary morale benefit.
  • Skilled characters will sometimes provide the community with new free items.
  • Certain exiles now count towards exile-related achievements.
  • Fixed an issue where facilities would stop building when the main menu was opened.
  • Fixed an issue where weapons would be repaired for free.
  • Armored zombies can no longer be killed by flames.
