State of Decay 2 Xbox Series X Hero

State of Decay 2 Adds New Challenges, Rewards, and Optimizations for Xbox Series X|S

Starting today, State of Decay 2 brings a wide variety of year-end updates and content for players to enjoy. To start, State of Decay 2 is now Optimized for Xbox Series X and Series S consoles. Players on these latest consoles can take advantage of lightning-quick load times, improved world and shadow detail, and a responsive 60 frames-per-second presentation at up to 4K resolution. 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.

For those who have mastered State of Decay 2’s challenges, we are bringing a new one just in time for your holiday break: Lethal Difficulty. This difficulty is a brutal new way to play that we’ve tuned right to the edge of impossible. Open-world resources are scarce, meaning that survival has to be earned instead of discovered. Enemies now hit harder, and blood plague is even deadlier. Plague hearts grow like weeds, and destroying one no longer guarantees safety from the hordes around it. And on top of all of that, the special “freak” zombies have been swapped out for their amped-up blood plague variants.

Lethal Difficulty represents the ultimate test of survival skill, with corresponding new achievements worth a total of 100 additional Gamerscore. Lethal aspects can also be mixed and matched with Custom Difficulty, so every player can fine-tune their ideal apocalypse. Looking for Lethal enemies with a Standard abundance of resources? We’ve got you covered. Would you prefer tranquil Green pastures with a Lethal case of the community blues? That’s available too.

And finally, just in time for the winter months we have the Stay Frosty Pack, which adds over a dozen themed items that can be earned through in-game challenges or discovered in the open world. Equip your survivors for the season with winter-camouflage weapons and outfits and use the new Maintenance Bench facility mod to minimize weapon breakage while in the field.

As with all bounty packs, this content is available free of charge — but only for a limited time, so grab it while you can!

There’s never been a better time to fire up State of Decay 2 and lead your community through the apocalypse. Keep your supplies stocked, choose new recruits wisely, and above all else: stay frosty.
