State of Decay 2 Launches This May For Xbox One and PC

Look at the state of it.

It’s been a long and arduous wait for State of Decay fans ever since the sequel was announced way back in 2016 — it even looked for a little while there like it had been quietly canned. Well, luckily, we finally have a release date for its launch on Xbox One and PC.

State of Decay 2 will land on shelves and Game Pass on May 22nd.

The sequel to the 2013 sleeper hit will be available in two forms. The Standard Edition basically just gives you the game for £24.99/$29.99 USD whereas the Ultimate Edition will go for £39.99/$49.99. That’s a sharp incline in price, but you get the Independence Pack and Daybreak Pack DLCs and also the original State of Decay included. If you can’t wait, you get early access to the game on May 18th.

State of Decay 2 Release Date, Trailers And Latest News

If you buy the game on Xbox One, you can also play it on PC thanks to the Play Anywhere feature. As mentioned, the game will be available through Game Pass, which is probably the most financially prudent thing you can buy as an Xbox owner. You get a whole heap of games for £9.99 a month, alongside all of the first-party efforts Microsoft have coming up.

I am pretty damn excited for State of Decay 2, especially as you could see where they could have taken things with a bit more budget — it was definitely a buggy and sometimes janky joy. Some issues didn’t stop it from selling over a million copies, and with the introduction of co-op, you would think that Undead Labs would be looking at similar figures again.
