March 6, 2018 – When we first set out to create State of Decay 2, we knew we wanted a true sequel that took everything fans loved from the first State of Decay and created a more dangerous and unpredictable world that allows players to engage with one another in co-op multiplayer to survive. We’ve been diligently working to deliver on our vision, and today, we’re happy to announce that State of Decay 2 will launch on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC as an Xbox Play Anywhere and Xbox Game Pass title on May 22, 2018. 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.
