March 26th is the day to mark in your diary if you are a fan of State of Decay 2 as that’s when the Choose Your Own Apocalypse Update will launch and bring quality-of-life fixes and two new zones which ramp up the difficulty levels.
“We’ve heard the feedback from experienced and hardcore players, and with the Choose Your Own Apocalypse Update, players can jump in by either starting a new community or moving an existing community to a zone of their choice,” said Microsoft.
“From there, survivors can venture into either Dread or Nightmare Zones to explore the latest challenge in post-apocalyptic survival and crank their plague-battling up a notch. See below for additional details about the new Zones before testing your survival skills.”
The new Dread Zones will offer “exciting challenges for experienced players, such as deadlier zombies, plague-infected juggernauts, a faster-acting blood plague, and fewer resources to scavenge,” while the Nighmare Zones “are gruelling endurance tests for hardcore players, featuring wandering groups of freaks and hostile humans capable of scoring lethal headshots against your survivors.”
State of Decay 2 is out on Xbox One and PC and is part of the Xbox Game Pass program.
