Microsoft has announced State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition, an “expanded and improved version” that adds “tons of new content and improvements” to the game.
If you’re an existing owner of State of Decay 2, don’t worry. You will benefit too. In fact, you’re getting an automatic free upgrade to the new edition. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will also see the new edition. However, if you’re looking to buy it, the game will retail for $29.99.
Here’s more from Philip Holt, the Head of Development at Undead Labs:
We created a brand-new open-world map for players to explore in a rugged logging town named Providence Ridge, and we completely rebuilt the post-tutorial experience to better teach players the key facets of playing State of Decay 2. There’s also a new category of heavy melee weapons that reward player skill and timing, a wide range of graphical improvements (including better lighting and foliage optimization for better performance), and dodge and stealth are now split into separate commands as part of an improved control scheme.
We also fixed dozens of mission and gameplay bugs to ensure a better experience for all players, improved the audio experience, including additional music that doubles the total amount in the game, and more.
The Juggernaut Edition launches on March 13 for PC via Steam and Xbox One.
