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.
