The exhilarating apocalyptic zombie survival game State of Decay 2 has been released for a while now and has generally been met with a lot of positivity despite some issues with the game. The developers of the game have now addressed these issues with an enormous 20GB patch, which updates the game to version 1.2. The developers promise that this patch will be the first of many to come.
The biggest changes that are being made to the game come in the form of performance improvements. Although the game was in no way a bad game at release, it did see a number of performance issues that put players off. First of all they will improve the stability of the game, improve the networking interactions, improve the vehicle network interactions and eliminate out of memory crashes. These changes will drastically improve the multiplayer in the game and will smooth out the entire experience a lot to make it more satisfying to play.
Besides these big changes there are also numerous smaller changes that are not as important but will also improve the game by a large margin. One of the most annoying interactions in the game is finally getting fixed, namely getting a grenade stuck behind your head. Yes, occasionally throwing a grenade in the game would be bugged and the grenade would be stuck behind your head, resulting in an unavoidable early grave. Although it doesn’t happen that often it’s still a fix that was very much needed. The other most notable fix is that the assault kick will actually do damage now whereas before zombies would somehow be immune to it. Now you can finally do your best Bruce Lee impression and kick zombies to their demise.
The patch notes also came with the announcement that over 600 million zeds (zombies) had been slain since the release of the game. Furthermore the head of Undead Labs wrote a personal thank you to the community for playing the game and stated that this patch is just the beginning and that big thing are planned for the future of State of Decay 2.
