State of Decay 2 - Ultimate Edition - Xbox One

Since Destiny 2 is dead and I will be finishing Fallout New Vegas soon, I have this on my radar.

State of Decay 2 - Ultimate Edition - Xbox One

Looks very interesting




State of Decay 2 Ultimate Edition includes early access to the full game, a code for the original State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition on console, and a code for two add-on content packs: Independence Pack and Daybreak Pack.

Build your community and invite up to three friends to explore an open world filled with hostile zombies. Four Player Co-Op Multiplayer. Establish a base, develop your characters and manage resources to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.

Xbox One X Enhanced with higher resolutions, steadier framerates and better effects

Supports Xbox Play Anywhere: play on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC at no additional cost

Any thoughts? I have already pre-ordered from Amazon

Not my kind of game. Will be included with Xbox Game Pass at launch so I will at least check it out.

Some of the reviews are brutal. Even the more positive ones point out how incredibly buggy it is.

Not my type of game, but it's 72 overall on Metacritic so far.

Somewhat disappointing, but at least it is a game pass game.

I pre-ordered it for $23 from Amazon. Not sure if it's my type of game, but for that price I'll give it a go.

Hopefully, the single player is decent, as I have not interest in 4-player co-op with strangers.

Re: State of Decay 2 - Ultimate Edition - Xbox One

So far so good.

No bugs or glitches. I am about 90 minutes in and liking it a lot. Resource gathering and settlement building after the tutorial. Lots of interface to learn and I like that you can assume another character in your settlement. I need to get better about logistics and finding things which I imagine will get tougher the father you venture from your settlement.

For those that pre-ordered the ultimate edition from Amazon, the special items will be available after 7 days, lots of people confused and not happy about this.

Graphics are good, lighting and terrain are good. Driving is a bit wonky as the right stick changes the view and makes it impossible to drive, just use the left stick. Dialog options are sparse but this could be because it is early in the game.

I am happy I got this and I am looking forward to playing with others in co-op mode.

Challenging game so far, tough to get established at a base, you are always out of something. Weapons break, food spoils, cars run out of gas . . . oh well guess being alive during a zombie apocalypse was not supposed to be easy

Re: State of Decay 2 - Ultimate Edition - Xbox One

My game glitched 20 minutes in. Got a pop up that asked me if I owned this game. Then it sent me back to the dashboard. I’m playing through Gamepass and my account is current.

Re: State of Decay 2 - Ultimate Edition - Xbox One

So far no glitches with several hours of gameplay. It certainly challenges you because every time you stock up on something, another item mysteriously goes bad or gets ruined somehow. Obnoxious way to create artificial issues. The controls are very floaty in my opinion. I hate driving. But it's still fun running around finding shit and attacking zombies. If I didn't have Gamepass, I wouldn't have a problem paying $29.99 for this game. Easily worth it.

Re: State of Decay 2 - Ultimate Edition - Xbox One

I think I might be over the first hump, I cleared the plague hearts in my area, now to clear the infestations.

I have 4 outposts for each material although I cannot figure out how to get water. The rain barrel is a mod and I have not done the mission to get help making a still. First the infestations since they are hurting morale.

I never played the first one but it came with the ultimate edition I bought so I may try that one as well to see if I can get a better handle on what has changed.

Re: State of Decay 2 - Ultimate Edition - Xbox One

Biggest issue so far is the vehicles. They get high centered in anything. Then you can get them off. So annoying.

Re: State of Decay 2 - Ultimate Edition - Xbox One

Fun game and yeah buggy. But the worst part is the constant issues:

Oh ants in the food. Lose food.
I spilled the fuel. Lose fuel.
I left the meds out. Lose meds.
Shit got broken. Lose materials.

It’s like every five minutes. Annoying.

Still no bugs or game issues for me at this point.

I understand that survival is supposed to be tough and I am ok with these messages. The ones that get me are the people that call for help, I go to help them and their house has zombies in and around it. WTH? Or they get pissed and leave town because I am not fast enough, ok I am busy killing zombies what are you doing?

Another gripe. You can't climb hardly anything. If it is taller than a half fence, forget about it. You can't even climb rocks. Fucking annoying as shit.

Yeah. It’s fun to run miles out of your way to get up a small cliff.

Re: State of Decay 2 - Ultimate Edition - Xbox One

Getting one bug consistently now, doors that look open are actually closed. Also my companion disappears after some missions and it wont let me dismiss them or choose a new one.

Still enjoying the game, the tension of trying to survive each day is real. I lost two characters and that hurt as I lost some skills I needed. I need to pay attention to the sub skills as they determine how successful your base building will be.

I have had both of those. Easiest way to fix problem 2 is to reset the game.
