Revealed two weeks ago during the most recent Inside Xbox episode, the Choose Your Own Apocalypse update for State of Decay 2 promised to bring two new difficulties to the game. Alongside 16 new achievements, the difficulties and a list of other improvements and general fixes have now arrived in the game.
Available for all players, the update introduces Dread Zones and Nightmare Zones. The Dread Zones are designed to offer a challenge for experienced players, while Nightmare Zones are designed to be tests of endurance even for the most hardcore of players. While we've already seen a basic list of features for each zone, a more detailed breakdown can be seen in the spoiler below:
As well as the new difficulty zones, there has been a list of general updates added to the game. These include a new interface for managing legacy survivors, a new menu for choosing the map when establishing a new community, and plenty of fixes. The full list of changes can be seen here.
To celebrate the release of the update, Undead Labs is offering players a chance to win five content packs that include vehicles, weapons, and survival consumables. To be in with a chance of winning the packs, players need to watch any of the State of Decay 2 streams on the Undead Labs Mixer channel from now until 11:59pm PDT on April 2nd. Make sure you're signed into your Mixer account to have a chance of winning. More details on the prizes and competition itself can be found here.
