State of Decay 2 Breaks Record with Over 1 Million Players in First Two Days of Global Release

By Chris Post

To say that fans are liking State of Decay 2, the latest zombie game to hit Xbox, would be a bit of an understatement.

Aaron Greenberg, general manager of Xbox Games Marketing, announced that the title had attracted more than a million players in just its 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,” Greenberg said. “Throughout launch, there have 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.”

Greenberg said players have been very busy in game, creating new communities, forging new friendships and killing zombies. In fact, he said, players killed more than 675 million zombies in the first few days. Beyond that they also ate over 6 million bags of snacks and read over 2 million textbooks.

According to Greenberg most players survive only a few days of in-game time, but a few have been more successful.

“Some players have survived for over an in-game month – a lofty goal to aim for your session this weekend,” he said.

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 $29.99 and the Ultimate Edition for $49.99. As an Xbox Play Anywhere game, one digital purchase gets you both the Xbox One and the Windows 10 version of the game.
