The sequel to the zombie-apocalypse-survival-RPG is on the way soon for a price that’s less that what you’re probably expecting.
So now we have it. $29.99 is not bad at all for the standard edition. Already own the original State Of Decay. Gamepass Day 1 for me anyway.
Gonna be great..first one was great fun but was missing coop.
It looks like a fun little game, reminds me of How To Survive a little.
I will get the standard edition because I already have the xbo SoD1 and the deluxe comes with the same version in addition to SoD2.
I was ready to drop $59.99 for this one considering how much time I put in the first. But I'll be happy to support Undead Labs with the Deluxe edition at only $49.99. That's a steal for sure.
@Jinger I agree. Deluxe Edition for me as well. :)
Why on earth would you expect SoD2 to be $60? The original game was $20 was it not? It certainly doesn't appear to have a AAA budget.
Sonic_vs_Mario How on earth is your comment getting agrees? The Order absolutely was AAA, sorry to burst your bubble but it was a big production with best in class visuals and a large budget. Deep Down didn't even ship, why would you mention it? Nobody bought Deep Down bc it never released. Why mention Sony or a Capcom game that became vapor? I just asked why ppl expected SoD2 to be $60 when the first SoD was a $20 game. I just didn't understand what exactly made them think it would be full priced when the franchise has already set a precedent for being a budget game.
@Sonic_Vs_Mario Sony players paid $60 for deep down? A game that never came out??? Please tell us more...
this is how you get people to buy the game. Instead of the stupid 129$ for the complete edition, Make a base edition cheap to have player count and possible purchase of content. And sell the full game at 60$ its not rocket science, Good on them
@Sonic vsMario That was the dumbest comment that I've read since I've been here.
Well I don't expect anything amazing at this starting price. Edit: I hope it is awesome though.
With many full priced titles launching with only 1 or maybe 2 features worth a crap this seems a little too good. But its an open world game so i would expect some thing meaty at the start
Ummm??? Did you play the 1st One? If not go look up some vids. Good game. At a minimum you can expect the 2nd to be as much fun
Yep! Going for Ultimate myself! Cant wait!
@Sonic_Vs_Mario That is completely untrue. I didn't buy No Mans Sky and Deep Down never released.
Deep down, wow. I forgot about that game. Is it ever coming?
hmm 30$.... i guess it's a low budget title. well we shall see tommorow with the full gameplay reveal.
yea i've seen the video. tommorow there is a full gameplay reveal i am waiting for in order for me to give my judgement. so far it does look low budget and the full reveal tommorow will confirm/deny that.
Its open world multiplayer so it looks fine to me.
Looks quite good for a 4 player co-op open world imo. Looks way better than I thought it would. Animations are pretty fluid.
At the end when the breserker tears her in half... good lawd can't wait
Damn this game looks good asf. The mechanics and gfx look update unlike the first. Day one buy for sure. With new features, all they have to do is have interesting missions and lengthy story and it'll be a hit.
@zivtheawesome Low budge or not. It´s a brand new game and costs cheaper than Sony´s PS4 remasters!
"It´s a brand new game and costs cheaper than Sony´s PS4 remasters! " do you know how many shit games meet that criteria?
MS is pricing it low because it's going to be a buggy piece of mess.
I quit working at shoprite and now I make $35h - $80h...how? I'm working online! My work didn't exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn't be happier. Heres what I do, •••••••••>> http://www.fl-y.com/3r8h
So was the first one and it was amazing.
They didn’t play it so they wouldn’t know or have anything to base their hatred on other than it’s an MS exclusive game. Silliness
It's odd to me that ppl are surprised at the budget price. I think with all the ppl hyping it as one of the big Xbox exclusives some are getting a twisted perception of what State of Decay is. It has always been budget, it's not a AAA.
@IamTylerDurden1 Exactly, because Microsoft haven't had many exclusives recently the titles they do have seem to get over hyped, state of decay 2 was never going to be a AAA game but it looks awesome to me and I can't wait.
it depends what people are expecting. I've been saying form day one this was never a AAA title and people shouldn't expect horizon zero dawn visuals. as long as they improve on the original in all departments which it looks like they have I will be happy. hopefully with game pass and a $30 price point it will do well enough to get a AAA budget for the next instalment . super hyped for co-op
Ziv What i have been saying all the time. SoD2 is a low budget title, just like Sea of thieves is. While it is better than nothing, Ms should focus more on AAA games.
Sea of thieves is not a budget title. it is a full priced 60$ games. SoD2 is 30$.
You really just called it low budget because it’s a $30 version? Lmbo, the first one was widely beloved for $20. And it was great to play. There’s a reason there’s a part 2....
Still a budget game with poor visuals, it's just the truth.
Hasn't this series always been lower priced?
Well this is only the second game, but yes the first game debuted as an xbox live arcade game for only $29.99 as well.
It actually released for $20.
This is so so baf release date man. Detroit is out May 20th if I am right. It will be an ok game, but Detroit is bigger game and by today standards were youtubers sell game (for kids) Detroit is much better game. To me Detroit is Far better game, but I will surely play both of them on Pro and One X
How does Detroit have anything to do with this lol their both exclusive to their respective console how will the impact eachothers sales plus state of decay will be on game pasa
Detroit? Yeahhh I doubt it, plus they're 2 COMPLETELY different types of games, well, if you can even call Detroit a "game" more like a movie.
At least it wont be a buggy mess like this will be
Listen Jinger, I love State of Decay. I bought it for 360 and Xbox One, but lets not pretend it wasn't a buggy mess. I'm expecting the same from State of Decay 2 as they haven't really shown anything, yet are releasing it fairly soon.I know I'll enjoy it so I'll be buying it regardless,but why talk crap on Detroit because of its genre? Do you also talk crap on Quantum Break, Life is Strange, and the TellTale games? Honest question. Are you a fanboy or do you just genuinely hate the genre? If I followed you on Xbox One am I going to see your 1000g gamerscores for Quantum Break and every TellTale game?
Multiplayer games always sell better than SP experiences, this has been the norm since online gaming became a thing on consoles. Not to mention with Mixer, streamers can actually let people hop in and try the game with them lol Detroit is def higher budget, but that has no correlation to sales, plenty of high budget titles have flopped
Of course there is a correlation to sales bro. State of Decay 2 will do well because its only counting on Xbox sales as an exclusive. The fact it doesn't have to compete with Detroit will help it, but if it did it would suffer. Just like Detroit would suffer it had to compete against Halo. However, a game releasing as a Triple A title compared to a $30 indie? Do you actually expect State of Decay 2 to do massive sales?By the way, PUBG on Xbox still has about 4 million more copies to sell before it catches Horizon Zero Dawn so your multiplayer games always selling more is not a fact. I actually own and enjoy both consoles, and will own both games, but Detroit will sell way more than State of Decay 2.
@isa_scout Not true at all, plenty of indie titles have outsold big triple AAA budget games, in the end marketing plays a huge factor as well and both games will release equal treatment on that front. True HZD has sold a lot, but remember you also have a MUCH larger install base to garner those sales from and PUBG hasn't been on Xbox as long as HZD's been on PS.
Isa, pubg on Xbox is around 5Million right now. For a early access game on half the consoles sold dont you think its doing pretty good for 3 months on the market?
what the hell as Detroit got to do with state of decay 2 you muppet, they couldn't be more different lol
Not a bad price but is the game going to only be worth it or is it crap?? Hopefully they made a good game but a half off normal priced game isn’t encouraging but who knows was the old one 29.99 too ? I played it for a bit but didn’t care for it because it wasn’t very good compared to the other better zombie games to play at the time
Yes the first was good, and sold over 2 million copies. It was also priced low.
Glad to see MS getting this out in May instead of trying to push into the holidays.
damn u r so sad. 10 comments in one thread all trolling. u have nothing better to do then be mad. Get a xbox or pc and play the game its ok lmao
@slavish, thanks for giving me a laugh that I was trolling for man.
Oh I had to upvote you also from 2 to 3.
Nice. Day one.
Love how MS is setting up there games this year. First Sea of Thieves and now State of Decay 2.
PUBG late last year rolling into the beginning of 2018, Sea of Thieves in March. State of Decay 2 in May, hopefully Crackdown 3, Ashen and Ori 2 for the Holidays.
@Jinger "PUBG late last year rolling into the beginning of 2018, Sea of Thieves in March. State of Decay 2 in May, hopefully Crackdown 3, Ashen and Ori 2 for the Holidays." Don´t forget Forza Horizon 4! ;)
Lets not get ahead of ourselves.
Yeah, 2 "exclusives" in First half of the year. Is this First time for Xbox One?
Being an xbox user is like being in an abusive relationship, you eventually get used to being treated that way
At least they finally get games out. What else do you want them to do? Cook you food also?
Man these guys are head banging funny.
After all this time I expect more than 2 games. Bah, "games", these are not games, these are live services. SoD2 will be like ark, or any other survival game: buggy and dlc heavy
hahaha Edit: Man head banging funny.
Turok might come out before the holidays.
I'll wait for reviews and community feedback, don't really need to pic
