Forums - Microsoft Discussion - State of Decay 2: 25 Minutes of 4-Player Co-op Multiplayer

Looks amazing so far but all I'm interested in is the base building, that's what I loved about the first game, the feeling of building a community.

Nice to see the co-op gameplay, co-op is the one thing people wanted from State of Decay.



Proud to be a Californian.

Should be one of the better games coming out this year



This feels two or three years too late.

What's the big deal about buying this from win. Store? I mean, i can undrestand concerns when the game is on win/steam at the same time ( user base on steam is just much bigger),but whats is the problem of buying it on win.store if it becomes a exclusive for win.platform.( only on xbox and win.store)

I, for one, will never forget the insult that was GFWL, the anti-consumer tactics of Windows 10, and the dangerous potential of UWP.  I actively distrust Microsoft and would like to limit their control of my gaming experience as much as possible.

Like giving it away for free?

 

The game looks great.

Kinda weak visuals (and thats on a super high end PC, not a xbox one).
Gameplay looks kinda meh too imo.

On Visual, looks weak, the game doesn't look good at all, as expected for AA game, but... the gameplay is interesting. On  Gameplay, this looks good, game looks very fun, i even dare to say it looks way better than SoT, imho.

You mean gameplay wise, and not graphically. I agree, Id rather be playing State of Decay than Sea of Theives.
I still think the game looks low budget, and worse gameplay wise than Days Gone.

I would go for $20 rather than the $30 it will cost. Might help this game more seeing this final result.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

They both look lackluster.

Looks like a great improvement, I hope we see the survival mechanics soon though (Base building, character progression, resource management etc.) since this video purposely left them out..

Eh, while I did like SoD 1, it played and looked rather dated/janky. The new one is more or less a refinement of the first game, but it still looks that bit dated visually and the animations feel a bit off. Not to mention that the devs mentioned a "dome" around your character, so you cannot really see objects and NPC's that far off into the distance, which would really hamper both my immersion and ability to play.

Playing the game on a beefed PC doesn't really sell me all that much, considering it doesn't look like there are any kind of bonuses for having beefier hardware (which reminds me of the whole parity thing that some devs do between console and PC versions).

That said, I won't buy into it until it launches on Steam. I'm not a fan of the Windows store at all in it's current form, and I like having full mod support, which the WS doesn't support.
