Microsoft has just announced that the recent release of State of Decay 2 has seen impressive first week numbers of players that has broken records, with a reported 1 million players in just two days. Check out the full press release below.
As the first week of the zombie apocalypse comes to a close, we wanted to say thank you to the over one million fans playing State of Decay 2, helping break the one million player mark in the first two days of release.
Since Early Access for the Ultimate Edition on May 18 and the global release of the Standard Edition on May 22, we have had over a million survivors across the globe playing and creating their own zombie survival story. Throughout launch, there’s been over six million combined hours of State of Decay 2 gameplay, and we’ve watched nearly 3.5M hours of gameplay across Mixer, Twitch and YouTube Gaming from over 41,000 unique broadcasts.
Across player communities, we’ve seen survivors kill over 675 million zombies, throw over 6 million firecrackers and fireworks, eat over 6 million bags of snacks, read over 2 million textbooks, and typically survive for about three days (with some players surviving for over an in-game month – a lofty goal to aim for your session this weekend).
We look forward to seeing the community continue to grow thanks to fans and Xbox Game Pass members sharing their stories and showing off their ultimate survival plan. If you haven’t joined the community just yet, you can start playing with your Xbox Game Pass membership, or purchase the Standard Edition for £24.99 and the Ultimate Edition for £39.99. As an Xbox Play Anywhere game, one digital purchase gets you both the Xbox One and the Windows 10 version of the game.
