Developer Undead Labs speaking with IGN has revealed the Xbox One X enhancements for the upcoming zombie survival game State of Decay 2.

"There are significant visual enhancements we're able to deliver thanks to the Xbox One X," said Undead Labs studio head and State of Decay 2 executive producer Jeff Strain.

"Extra memory and greater processing power gives us a more stable frame rate and let’s us do more with higher resolution textures. When you're in the game, you'll immediately see the difference – denser foliage, detailed shadows, depth of light from farther distances, and more detailed character models. It makes the world feel more crisp, vibrant, and like real life. And of course, it lets us run the game in 4k and HDR, which a lot of fans are excited about."

State of Decay 2 will launch will launch for the Xbox One and Windows PC on May 22 for $29.99.

The 4k content for the X has been really good since release. Glad MS use 4k as a standard across there 1st party line up.

I'm surprised its only $30. I thought they were gonna push this as a $60 game.

How much did the first game cost when it was released?

It still is a $30 title on Steam i think, but it was an indie game back then.

This game does look good, but it's definitely not on AAA leve imo, so I think the price is sensible. I was expecting it cost $40 or $50, since it's not a new and unproved IP like Recore and it seems to be a bigger and more ambitious game too, so to me $30 is definitely a bargain.

I was only planning on buying the next Forza & Sea of Thieves title this year in terms of Xbox exclusives. But it seems like the devs really upped their game this time around for a cheap price, I guess it's time to kill some zombies outside of COD.
