Microsoft announced that more than one million people have played State of Decay 2 in its first two days. 

"Since Early Access for the Ultimate Edition on May 18 and the global release of the Standard Edition on May 22, we have had over a million survivors across the globe playing and creating their own zombie survival story," said Microosft's Aaron Greenberg.

"Throughout launch, there have been over six million combined hours of State of Decay 2 gameplay, and we’ve watched nearly 3.5M hours of gameplay across Mixer, Twitch and YouTube Gaming from over 41,000 unique broadcasts.

"Watching players create new communities, forge friendships and test survival skills contributed to making State of Decay 2 one of the top-watched titles this week. Across player communities, we’ve seen survivors kill over 675 million zombies, throw over 6 million firecrackers and fireworks (survivors still find ways to celebrate), eat over 6 million bags of snacks, read over 2 million textbooks, and typically survive for about three days (with some players surviving for over an in-game month – a lofty goal to aim for your session this weekend)."

State of Decay 2 is available now on the Xbox One and Windows PC for $29.99.

I am enjoying it. I enjoyed the first one and the 2nd is just as good if not better.

Brought Digitally, only glitch I have come across is some heavy screen tearing on the X. I haven't tried this on my PC yet.
