Undead Labs’ sequel to their breakout hit State of Decay has been long in development, with rabid hordes of
zombies gamers eagerly awaiting its arrival. Thankfully, the wait won’t be for much longer, with a release now set for 22nd May on Xbox One and Windows 10. While it’s a Play Anywhere title, it’s also part of Xbox Game Pass, sticking to Microsoft’s pledge that all first party titles would be part of the subscription srevice.
It’s one of the few major exclusives announced for Microsoft’s platforms this year, and as such it’s got high expectations heaped upon it. One thing that’s slightly unexpected is the price if you want to buy it outright. It will be $29.99 for the standard edition and $49.99 for the ultimate edition.
That ultimate edition will unlock the game a bit early on 18th May, while also bundling a copy of State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition and netting you two DLC expansions as and when they release.
Microsoft GM of Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg said, “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.”
