Was watching you (KjGarly) last night for the last 30mins of your stream. Thought you were dragging Sev around to help you out before realizing it was bugged. Seeing over 5k stockpile of everything was impressive.

Haha yeah he's been bugged for days, as I said couldn't even switch to Sev to cancel out the follower. Couldn't even get the nice rifle with the silencer he had equipped off him so at least I sent him packing well armed :x

Having now played SoT 2 (post patch) I don't agree at all, but ouch nonetheless. What did they have to say about it? Was it as scathing as Eurogamer's review?

I think this was the best selling game in the US, last month. (And that doesn't count Game Pass.)

State of Decay 2 Celebrates 3 Million Players with Today’s Release of the Independence Pack

In advance of the 4th of July holiday, we are celebrating that the State of Decay 2 community now exceeds three million players. This, along with the recent news that fans made State of Decay 2 the best-selling game of May, puts us in a festive mood. To celebrate, we are revealing our first post-launch content, the Independence Pack. This pack gives you the opportunity to take on the zombie horde with style, grace and most importantly, colorful gunpowder. Available today on both Xbox One and Windows 10, the pack unlocks an array of fiery new versions of vehicles, weapons and gear for your community. State of Decay 2 wants you to show off with explosive awesomeness to the three million player strong community. Heck, even the zeds are dressed for the occasion in this pack, and there are few things as satisfying as taking out a Revolutionary War-themed zombie during a supply run. It’s like history that you can blow up…with fireworks!

What do you get in this firework-filled content? Glad you asked, patriot. The Independence Pack features three zombie-ready vehicles, access to a supply drop containing three new patriotic melee weapons, two unique ranged weapons and piles of single-use fireworks that are perfect for causing general havoc (or making blood plague elimination a much more festive occasion):

Take the Pyrohawk, Burninator or Meatwagon out for a spin. With names like these, you know driving will be more entertaining.
Step up to your station at the BBQ with The Freedom Ringer, Grillmeister and BBQ Fork – new hand-held zed-slaying solutions.
Subtlety not your thing? Well we have the Pyro Launcher and Starshank Launcher so you can blast zombies with fiery explosives.
Just like loud noises with pretty colors? You’re in luck! The Block Rocker, Reign o’ Fire, Bouncing Boris and XL Firework Shell offer even more options to turn a mission into a celebration.
If that’s still not enough boom, you can also use the new Fireworks Crafting Station facility mod to craft additional fireworks or ammunition for your fancy new fireworks launchers. Also keep an eye out for a new wandering trader hosting a fire sale on these explosive new goodies. That’s right, a good ole traditional fireworks sale.

Grab the Independence Pack today for £4.19 (or for free if you purchased State of Decay 2: Ultimate Edition); Xbox Game Pass members also receive a 10 percent discount on the Independence Pack. If that isn’t enough to get you jazzed, the team also added to the existing game with a new update that focuses on non-firework content. In Update 2.0, get ready for 20 FREE new missions, nearly 10 new weapons, a “Rare Books” trader for new skills and plenty of improved gameplay in honor of the Independence Pack for ALL players. Did we mention it’s free? To read more on that, please visit for the full patch notes and other things that aren’t fireworks.

But wait, there’s more! After wiping out the blood plague and celebrating your legacy with this festive pack, get ready for completely separate shenanigans in the upcoming Daybreak Pack this September. That all-new content lets you take the fight to the zombies, featuring an exciting new mode where you play as a well-equipped Red Talon soldier. You’ll work to complete a challenging objective while protecting your fortified position against waves of zombies and freaks to earn new rewards and weapons. The Daybreak Pack is also included in State of Decay 2’s Ultimate Edition. ... jVPrXdk.99

Content Update 3.0 is Live!

We’ve got another update for you survivors, and this one’s got a TON of fixes!

Patch 3.0 features many significant quality-of-life improvements and a host of bug fixes that solve confusing or frustrating issues.

Patch 3.0 Highlights

Feature Improvements

All players in a multiplayer game can now use the “Stuck?” radio command.
Vehicles will now be teleported by the “Stuck?” radio command.
The “Stuck?” radio command now won’t teleport you all the way back to your base.
Players can now use the Workshop facility to repair or salvage equipped weapons, rather than having to drop them into the Supply Locker first.
Salvaged weapons now return their ammo to your Supply Locker instead of destroying it.
Info flyouts for outposts on the map screen now show the outpost number, which corresponds to the outpost number in the base management screen.
Players will now see a banner at the top-center of screen when a community member dies, instead of the brief side notification that previously popped up.
Players will now see a banner at the top-center of screen when a community member threatens to leave or leaves, instead of the brief side notification that previously popped up.
Communities will now automatically claim an appropriate “starter” home site when traveling to a new map.
Several radio commands have been enabled for clients in multiplayer games.
Players can now drop equipped weapons.
Players can now buy 1 individual item from a stack when trading with enclaves.
Players can now navigate conversation options with Left Stick as well as D-pad controller input.
The Supply Locker is now automatically sorted by item type. Additionally, the Ranged Weapons tab has the option to sort by either ammo caliber or weapon type.

The Mysterious Wandering Trader now appears more reliably.
Adjusted the cadence of the Independence Pack DLC trader to better balance with the Wandering Trader.
The mission that creates the trader who supplies skill books is now called “Skills Trader” (to more clearly communicate its different nature). Also, this mission can now occur during the week (and not just on weekends).

Balance Changes

When you abandon an outpost, you’ll be refunded only 60% of the original influence cost, instead of 100%. This increased investment in an outpost is intended to make it feel like a significant choice by the player, rather than an easily swapped “loot-drop” location that drastically alters the overall experience.
Proximity mines are no longer triggered by players or by friendly NPCs.

Bug Fixes


Players can now improve their Close Combat Specialization skill.
Players trying to descend a ladder will no longer experience confused Up/Down controls when the ladder animation involves a camera flip.
Players can no longer consume (and waste) energy drinks if their character is still under the effect of a prior energy drink.
Grenade launcher rounds no longer occasionally bounce off of fat zombies.
Explosives now set off other nearby explosives, such as land mines. Have fun with that;)
Losing a benefit that reduces the severity of trauma can no longer kill a character (due to retroactive increase of trauma).
Certain rare skills learned from books will now always start at Level 1 as intended.
Skill books can no longer be consumed if they would not grant any benefit.
Fixed an issue with fire occasionally (and invisibly) remaining in effect beyond the appropriate duration.
Recon radio commands now reveal zombies for all players, not just the host.
When calling in favors over the radio, the enclave that owes you the favor will now answer, rather than someone from your own community.
Facility actions can now be truly instantaneous (cost 0 seconds).
Improved the reliability and predictability of the “Stuck?” radio command.
Improved the predictability of your starting position when loading back into a saved community.


When a home site or previously cleared site becomes infested, it now properly shows an infestation icon on the map.
The minimap now zooms in correctly when indoors at an infestation or plague heart.
Sell and Buy prices for stacks have been adjusted to fix discrepancies with individual item pricing.
The Out of Storage notification now properly triggers when you deposit a rucksack that brings that resource level from just below your base’s maximum capacity to above the maximum capacity.
The base management screen’s morale flyout now correctly uses the morale effect’s name instead of the name of the facility providing the effect.
Notifications for certain rare skills learned from books now show the correct maximum skill level.
The UI for your Storage facility now indicates when withdrawing a rucksack is not possible due to insufficient resources.
Fixed an issue with the player’s vehicles not showing up on the map UI after moving to a new map.
Flyout info for sites on map screen should now properly show icons for all expected resources.
When using the mouse on the map screen, the goal info flyout now shows when hovering over a goal in the list, instead of requiring it to be clicked.
Labor and time costs are now shown for facility mod uninstall actions.
The Independence Pack supply drop container now shows a “Busy” indicator when another player is interacting with it.
Players interacting with the radio menu using a mouse can no longer accidentally click buttons that have been hidden by an opened command category

Fixed an issue causing jerky flashlight movements with bad network updates.

Vehicle icon now properly persists if the last passenger of a vehicle exits out of a non-driver seat.
Fixed an issue with Independence Pack vehicle deliveries occasionally appearing beneath the map (and thus inaccessible.)
Clients can now see when their car is properly parked at the host’s base.
Clients can now see the name of vehicles while surveying.


Added error sound when attempting to select unavailable radio command.
Key Bindings
Players who have remapped Struggle and Melee actions to different inputs can now use either one to open locked doors.


Tweaked visuals and timing of bloater gas cloud to more closely match effects.
Fixed many spots where players could get stuck in the environment.
Fixed many instances of world art floating or clipping incorrectly. ... 0-is-live/

State of Decay 2 Reveals New Details for Daybreak Pack DLC

Today during our “Inside Xbox” segment at gamescom 2018 we revealed new details – new co-op gameplay, new zombies, new loot and more – for the upcoming Daybreak Pack for State of Decay 2. The team at Undead Labs has been thrilled with the community response to the game with well over three million players worldwide, and now fans can check out the next chapter in the ultimate zombie survival experience in person at gamescom where Daybreak Pack will be playable for the first time this week.

Arriving on Sept. 12 the Daybreak Pack is a brand-new game mode for State of Decay 2 – a re-playable co-op “zombie siege” experience:

Team up with friends. Players and up to three teammates play as highly skilled Red Talon soldiers armed with high-end weaponry; together, they will defend a fortified position against waves of oncoming zombies, while a vulnerable technician repairs a critical satellite relay.

New enemies and weapons. Among the waves of regular and special zombies players will need to ward off will be a new enemy – the Blood Plague Juggernaut! This is a tougher version of the already powerful juggernaut who will expose players to blood plague. To combat this new scourge, players have access to a new set of CLEO weapons including eight new ranged weapons, six new melee weapons and six new deployable explosives.

New rewards and achievements. The more waves you survive, the more rewards you earn. Rewards and unlocked items can be used to fight more efficiently in future Daybreak sessions and players will also be able to access those same unlocked items for their main community of survivors, giving access to the new CLEO weapons, additional accessories and upgrades for their base – including the opportunity to bring in a Red Talon soldier. Lastly Daybreak Pack comes with over two dozen new achievements for State of Decay 2 worth 250 Gamerscore!

Daybreak Pack will be available for fans who own the Standard Edition for $9.99 (USD*), and is included with the Ultimate Edition at no additional cost. It will also be available at launch for Xbox Game Pass members with a 10% discount. As an Xbox Play Anywhere game, one digital purchase gets you both the Xbox One and the Windows 10 version of the game. In addition to the release of Daybreak Pack, there will be a content update to continue improving player experience. Keep an eye on for a full list of patch notes when the update goes live!

We’re excited to find out how fans will survive the Daybreak Pack in State of Decay 2! If you’re at gamescom this week, be sure to swing by the Xbox booth to check out all the new zombie action. ... -pack-dlc/

Content Update 4.0 is Now Live!

To pave the way for the upcoming Daybreak Pack, we’re unleashing a batch of quality-of-life fixes that will improve your gameplay experience.

(We’re especially excited about items 1-3 under “Characters and Communities,” and we think many of you will agree!)

Speaking of the Daybreak Pack….

Don’t forget to check in again one week from today, because this brand-new game mode goes on sale on September 12! Daybreak is a session-based co-op game mode for State of Decay 2. It also includes a wealth of new weapons and equipment useful both in Daybreak and in your home community.

Patch 4.0 Highlights

General Issues

Fixed an exploit involving buying and selling stackable items with traders to earn massive amounts of Influence.
Removed an apparent soft-lock caused by the death of a leader.
Removed some locks and crashes associated with pop-up boxes.
Fixed a handful of buildings that were inaccessible due to collision.
Fixed a number of localization issues.

Characters and Communities

Random “resource loss” events are now dependent on morale and traits. If you recruit carefully and keep everyone happy, then random resource losses should be a thing of the past.
Characters who incur “resource loss” events because of low morale will now receive a temporary morale benefit for doing so. IE, they binged on a bunch of food, but at least it made them feel better.
Skilled characters will now sometimes provide the community with new free items in place of the “resource loss” events.
Exiles should now always count towards exile-related achievements.
Characters from other enclaves will no longer receive the large-scale death-banner treatment when they die.

Bases and Facilities

Fixed an issue where facilities would sometimes stop building when the main menu was opened.
Fixed an issue where weapons would be repaired for free.
Fixed collision on the Sniper Tower to allow it to be scaled.
Fixed a case where the old Rally Point bases could still be claimed.
Extended the new resource-counting prompt for depositing rucksacks in the generic Storage facility to apply to specialized Storage facilities as well.


Fixed an issue where some missions would provide deceptively large piles of resources.
Fixed many cases where critical NPCs would not show up for missions (or in one case, would attack you for no reason).
Fixed an issue with the Warlord: The Informantmission, which was not counting vehicle kills.
Fixed an issue with the Builder: The Call Is Answeredmission, in which some enclaves would flee the player’s home site.


Armored zombies are no longer killed by flames. Instead, they catch fire and become scarier, like a juggernaut;)
Zombie kills with vehicles should now count towards zombie-killing achievements.
Fixed some issues where zombies would spawn trapped in geometry.
Fixed an exploit that allowed some clients to easily blow up the host’s vehicles.
Fixed an issue with indefinitely persistent C4 charges left by dead characters. ... -now-live/

No-one that subscribes to Game Pass is going to buy a game that's on the service.
