Almost a year ago, work started on Providence Ridge. At the time, we had just a code name and a single goal — bring a new open world map to State of Decay 2, and fulfill one of the top requests from the Community Wishlist.

Little did we know that in that time, we’d add so. much. more. Several “strike teams” worked for months to create a new system of heavy weapons; completely refresh the UI and main menu; remaster the graphics and add new gorgeous lighting effects; improve and add new audio; and change the way that new players learn to be masters of the apocalypse.

What can we say? We love our jobs and we love creating in this world. State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition is more than an update, it’s a bit of a love letter to you, the players, living out your zombie apocalypse survival fantasy.

Please join us to celebrate the launch during today’s very special three-hour livestream, 1-4pm Pacific time on Mixer and Twitch. Developers will talk in-depth about their work and we’ll be giving away amazing prizes — including a Juggernaut Edition-themed Xbox One X (the usual legal disclaimers apply: please see the official Rules for entry).

There’s so much to do and see in Juggernaut Edition that it’s almost impossible to put into a single post. We recommend starting with the incredible Patch Notesand this isn’t even everything!

Check out our official Player Guide or share the Survival Guide tutorials with someone you know who is just starting out.

You’re the reason Juggernaut Edition is here. We couldn’t do this without you. Thank you for playing. Together, we survive.

Don’t miss the original comic, the Legend of Shaggy Jack. It’s a bloody good time.
