The Xbox Exclusive State of Decay 2 will be releasing on May 22, 2018 but pre-orders for the game are already live. The sequel intends to take everything fans loved from the original State of Decay and create a more dangerous and unpredictable world for players to explore and survive in. Like any good zombie survival game, it also includes multiplayer co-op and allows players to determine how they’ll survive the zombie apocalypse.
Granted, like most Xbox Exclusives these days, the game will also run on Windows 10 PC as an Xbox Play Anywhere and Xbox Games Pass title. Which means, State of Decay 2 features cross-platform co-op, where you and up to three of your friends can survive together on Xbox One or Windows 10 PC.
According to Xbox Wire:
State of Decay 2’s Standard Edition will be available for $29.99 and fans can also purchase State of Decay 2: Ultimate Edition for $49.99. State of Decay 2: Ultimate Edition includes 4 days early access beginning May 18, along with two add-on packs: “Independence Pack” and “Daybreak Pack” (available at a later release date) on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. The Ultimate Edition will also include a download token for a bonus copy of the console version State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition. State of Decay 2 can be pre-ordered starting today at your favorite retailer’s site or at the Microsoft Store through the following links: Standard Edition and Ultimate Edition. Gamers who pre-order between now and May 21st will also receive some exclusive in game pre-order items.
“Our goal is to build a long-term relationship with the State of Decay community and to foster deeper experiences with the franchise. We believe State of Decay 2 accomplishes this goal by immersing fans in the ultimate zombie survival fantasy, and we want to give more players the opportunity to join in and experience this unique game,” said Aaron Greenberg, General Manager of Games Marketing at Microsoft. “Whether you play as an Xbox Game Pass member, purchase the Standard Edition for $29.99, or the Ultimate Edition for $49.99 to get early access and additional content, you get a great game and a larger community to play State of Decay 2 with.”
