When you’re taking on horde, after horde, after horde of zombies, sometimes numbers are your only way to survive. In just two days after its global launch on Xbox One and PC, State of Decay 2 racked up over one million players.
It should be noted that the number of players doesn’t necessarily account for the number of sales. State of Decay 2 is currently available on Xbox Games Pass, Xbox One’s game streaming service. Members of the service can play the game in its entirety without having to have purchased it.
That’s not the only impressive number Undead Labs and Microsoft have shared either. From May 18 to 22, players have collectively played over 6 million hours and streamed 3.5 million hours on Mixer, Twitch, and YouTube with 41,000 broadcasts.
Within the game, players have slaughtered over 675 million zombies, thrown 6 million firecrackers and fireworks, munched on 6 million bags of snacks, read 2 million textbooks, and on average have survived for three in-game days.
State of Decay 2 had a bit of a rough launch, earning mostly mediocre and OK reviews due to the amount of bugs. In our State of Decay 2 review, Alessandro Barbosa gave it a 5/10, stating “Often though, it’s the game itself that will do its best to deter you from playing rather than its lack of depth. State of Decay 2 runs extremely poorly, even on Xbox One X.”
