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.

How does it look worse game play than Days Gone? Days Gone looks like a story base horde zombie game. State of Decay 2 is a base building zombie RPG game. SoD2 has more game play mechanics than Days Gone and the co-op looks good. Days Gone looks fun too but I'd rather play SoD2.

OP- Loved the first game and this looks like a huge improvement so I'll definitely get it day one.

It's just so he can bring up the PS4 in an Xbox thread.



IGN will be doing more videos showing other features.

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)

"for Win7 scrubs such as myself"... that pretty much answers your question lol, seems whenever XBO/PC games are exclusive to the Windows Store they're Win10 exclusive, yet the ones that have released on Steam too can be played on Win7.

I see, makes sense if the game becomes w10 only on w.store.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Yeah, i'm talking about gameplay. Visuals on SoD are weak indeed, as expected for a AA game. Also, Days Gone is another level, far superior, it' not fair to compare.

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.

Maybe.  Or maybe because of the stuff mentioned below, especially the forced upgrades.

In a recent post on their site, the EFF provides a scathing review of Microsoft’s troublesome decisions in relation to Windows 10, including: hitherto unheard-of free upgrades; insistent and entrenched upgrade prompts on Windows 7 and 8; pushing Windows 10 upgrades via Windows Update; categorizing privacy-compromising and advertising-related updates as important for security; user interface tricks that are common to malware; collecting and transmitting large amounts of potentially sensitive data from Windows computers to Microsoft; failing to provide either adequate explanations for — or methods for disabling — various unwanted features; obfuscating their intentions behind claims of improved security and enhanced functionality; and claims that Windows Update is somehow unable to function without privacy-violating functionality enabled.  https://boot13.com/privacy/the-eff-scolds-microsoft-on-its-anti-consumer-tactics/

Dynamic events (random & effected by certain things like weather/time of day)

Day, night, rain, snow, fog = Not just cosmetic
it effect how you can deal with situations, it changes how you bike handles ect.
It even effects the creatures, how they act and how strong they are.

stealth combat / traps (also effected by weather) , enviorment usage (chockpoints vs swarms, run and gun, and manuvering to stay ahead of the swarm), all these differnt approaches to problem solveing,  Sound to lure monsters (while your lurking around),  crafting, Molatov cocktails, Useing a swarm of undead to take out other enemies (by lureing a swarm to your enemy), the A.I is much more complex even stuff like campfires effect how A.I people act.

You cant tell me the gameplay doesnt look vastly more varied and impressive than this Co-OP multiplayer demo of State of Decay 2.

Where mostly they just run up and mash zombies heads in with a shovel or get a shot or two off with a gun to end a zombie.

2 platform exclusive zombie games releaseing near one another,.... it makes sense to compair them.

I've seen that Days Gone video before and the game looks good gameplay wise but SoD2 has more to offer when it comes to gameplay.

Game also has a day and night cycle that affects how zombies will act and the devs have hinted at a weather system.

There is also a stealth element of SoD2

Character progression and similar to the first game there will be different characters with different stats that you have to manage.

Base building which is a big part of the SoD ip that wasn't shown in the video.

How you manage and obtain resources.

4 player Co-op

3 different worlds. All of them are large open world's that are all bigger than the first games 1 open world map.

The IGN gameplay only showed a little bit of what the game has to offer. In a way it's similar to the days Gone gameplay we have see. In both gameplay all that's happening in killing and shooting zombies.
