State of Decay 2 is the ultimate zombie survival fantasy, where it’s up to you to decide how to survive in an open, post-apocalyptic world. State of Decay 2 takes everything you loved about the first game and greatly expands on it – giving you more unique survivor characters, more backstories and skills for each member, more community and base management options, and bigger maps to survive in.
State of Decay 2 also adds one of the most requested features from the community: cross-platform co-op. You and up to three of your friends can survive together on Xbox One or Windows 10 PC and help develop one player’s community, and then everyone returns to their games with extra supplies and loot after playing co-op. As an Xbox Play Anywhere title, you’ll get both versions with one digital purchase and be able to switch seamlessly between them, as all game progress, Gamerscore and Achievements are saved on and accessible through Xbox Live.
The Standard Edition of State of Decay 2 is available to Xbox Game Pass members ($9.99 monthly subscription) starting today. In addition, the State of Decay 2’s Standard Edition ($29.99) and State of Decay 2: Ultimate Edition ($49.99) can be purchased via the Microsoft Store or your favorite retailer.
