State of Decay 2 Release Date, Price Confirmed

State of Decay 2 Release Date, Price Confirmed

The game will also be available through Xbox Game Pass.

State of Decay 2 has a release date, and it will be launching exclusively on Microsoft platforms like Xbox One and PC on May 22. It will also support cross-play and Play Anywhere.

State of Decay 2 will retail for $29.99, but there will be an Ultimate Edition available for $49.99. The Ultimate Edition will allow players early access to State of Decay 2 and will also include the first game. Future DLC will also be included into the bundle, but there are no details yet of what exactly those future DLC will be.

State of Decay 2 will also be added to Xbox Game Pass, where for a monthly subscription fee, players can have access to various Microsoft titles, including first-party Microsoft exclusives like Sea of Thieves. The game will be available on Xbox Game Pass on the same day as regular release.

The cheap price is so that Microsoft can "build a long-term relationship with the State of Decay community and to foster deeper experiences with the franchise," according to Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg to GameSpot. "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."

State of Decay 2 is one of the Xbox One exclusives scheduled for this year, alongside Sea of Thieves. A zombie survival game, State of Decay 2 takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where survivors have to band together to survive.
