State of Decay 2 Game Details
If you’ve never heard of State of Decay 2 before today, well you are in for a treat. This game was developed by Undead Labs and it’s a zombie sandbox game. When the game was released back in 2018, it didn’t get the best reviews due to a lot of issues and bugs that the game had during launch. The biggest issue to the game beyond the technical issues was the open-world apocalypse setting was too repetitive and a lot of people found it boring.
The Juggernaut Edition that will be coming to Steam is going to be a bit different from that Windows Store version which received less-than-perfect reviews. Juggernaut Edition promises to have more maps, more weapons, and less of a repetitive open-world boring system. The gameplay was enhanced to make combat more of a centerpiece of the game. Even the story generator was changed to make it more enjoyable.
