Microsoft kan nu fortælle, at deres og Undead Labs’ State of Decay 2 har rundet 2 mio. spillere på PC & Xbox One til trods for ikke alt for rosende anmeldelser.

Det er Aaron Greenberg, som via Xbox Wire kunne bidrage med de nye tal i forgårs. Vi påpegede flere fejl og mangler i vores anmeldelse af State of Decay 2, men det har ikke forhindret spillet i at kunne tiltrække spillerne. Nu er State of Decay 2 en del af Xbox Game Pass, så man kan prøve det gratis i to uger eller abonnere på servicen for 59 kr. om måneden.

Undead Labs bidrog med en 20 GB patch, som retter mange af spillets især AI-problemer og co-op besværligheder.

Den voldsomme størrelse på patchen er dog en stor overraskelse. Patchen er stort set lige så stor som hele spillet installeret (22.3 GB.).

It has been incredible to see fans around the world supporting State of Decay 2 and we are excited to share that we have reached more than 2 million players in less than two weeks since our global launch on May 22. On behalf of the team here and our incredibly talented partners at Undead Labs, we want to thank the millions of fans old and new who have helped build such a strong community of players united in the fight for survival.

With so many players enjoying the game, we’ve seen some interesting trends and data since our previous milestone of 1 million players. So far, survivors have eliminated close to 2 billion zombies! We’re also seeing lots of successful survivor stories. Last week, players tended to survive about three days on average, and as of note, we’ve seen players complete over 121,000 community stories and start brand new communities with a new map that includes extra bonuses to help kickstart their new survival challenge. This shows an incredible commitment to the game and we’re excited so many of you are enjoying the rich survival experience that State of Decay 2 offers.

The entire team has been working hard to bring all 2 million players lots of key fixes, gameplay tune-ups, and quality of life improvements with our latest game patch released last Friday. We are always listening to our fans to improve the game experience, and we will continue to bring updates and additional content as you explore all that State of Decay 2 has to offer.
