Microsoft has announced that State of Decay 2, its zombie survival game, has over 2 million players in its first two weeks.
Along with the high player-count, there are some amusing stats. This from Xbox Wire:
“With so many players enjoying the game, we’ve seen some interesting trends and data since our previous milestone of 1 million players. So far, survivors have eliminated close to 2 billion zombies! We’re also seeing lots of successful survivor stories.
Last week, players tended to survive about three days on average, and as of note, we’ve seen players complete over 121,000 community stories and start brand new communities with a new map that includes extra bonuses to help kickstart their new survival challenge.”
Microsoft has also pledged continued support of State of Decay 2, which launched a spate of technical issues:
“The entire team has been working hard to bring all 2 million players lots of key fixes, gameplay tune-ups, and quality of life improvements with our latest game patch released last Friday. We are always listening to our fans to improve the game experience, and we will continue to bring updates and additional content as you explore all that State of Decay 2 has to offer.”
It’s quite a turn up for the game, which launched to a fairly lukewarm reception. People evidently have a thirst for zombie-bashing, it seems.
