It’s our first ever Free to Play weekend!

Starting NOW and continuing until Monday at 10am PT (on Steam) and Monday at noon PT (on Xbox), you have plenty of time to explore base-building mechanics and flex your combat skills against the zeds. (Don’t worry if that sounds intimidating, there’s a difficulty level that’s right for everyone!) Already own the game? Share this post with a friend, because State of Decay 2 is also 67% off this weekend only (less than $10!) … our deepest discount ever.

This is the absolute best time to try the game and forge your own destiny in the post-apocalyptic landscape.

All new fan kit

We’ve refreshed our fan kit with concept art, wallpapers for your phone and computer, and most excitingly, an entirely new streamer kit! Next time you stream State of Decay 2, use our overlays and animations to announce new subs and more!

Check it out, it’s all for you. <3

Watch our Friday livestream and win prizes

Join us for our developer livestream Friday, May 20th, from 3-4pm PT on Steam, Twitch and YouTube to celebrate our anniversary and for your chance to win exclusive swag!

More than just the game

Also available during the Free to Play weekend are two standalone modes: State of Decay 2’s story mode, Heartland that has advanced forms of blood plague (blood plague walls and the endgame Gauntlet), and the siege mode Daybreak, that pits a hold-out team of operatives against waves of timed zombie attacks. Not sure where to start? Pay a visit to Cash Beaumont, who will greet you with seasonal, rotating bounties to complete in exchange for hard to find weapons and loot. We also recommend our series of YouTube tutorials.

Give us your feedback

We’ve been updating State of Decay 2 the last several years with over thirty free updates including new maps, modes, and deep systemic changes (based largely in part by player feedback from the Public Test Realm, our open beta on Steam. Find out how to participate here!)

With more updates on their way this Summer, there’s more now than ever to explore and enjoy.

We are excited for you to get the hands-on time with the game you deserve, and hope you discover that you need State of Decay 2 spicing up your life. Have fun and we’ll see you in Discord!

Happy Anniversary everyone!
