State Of Decay 2 Update Adds Xbox Series X/S Optimizations, New Challenges, And More
With the release of the Xbox Series X/S, numerous titles from the previous console generation have received optimizations that bestow quality of life updates and in some new features. One such title is none other than State of Decay 2, which just received a massive new update that adds in those optimizations along with new challenges, rewards, and more.
Microsoft recently took to its Xbox Wire page to detail the new additions to State of Decay 2. With the game now officially optimized for Xbox Series X/S, players will now have access to even faster load times, 60fps at up to 4k resolution, and improved world and shadow detail. “When your favorite survivor gets ambushed during that next scavenging run, rest assured that your Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are providing the highest-quality perma-death experience possible.”
As for the new content, State of Decay 2 now has a new Lethal Difficulty. This difficulty lessens open-world resources, enemies hit harder, and the blood plague is even more dangerous. “Plague hearts grow like weeds, and destroying one no longer guarantees safety from the hordes around it,” the post explains. “And on top of all of that, the special “freak” zombies have been swapped out for their amped-up blood plague variants.”
What’s a new challenge without some accompanying rewards? The new Stay Frosty Pack has been added into the game, bringing with it over a dozen themed items that players can obtain through open-world discovery and completing in-game challenges. These items include winter-camouflaged weapons, outs, and a new Maintenance Bench facility mod to take care of weapon breakage out in the field.
State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition is now available on PC, Xbox One, and optimized for Xbox Series X/S.
