"Significant" 20GB State of Decay 2 patch aims to fix the game

"This patch today is just the beginning…"

State of Decay 2 launched in, well, a bit of a state. Our reviewer Edwin called the Microsoft Studios game "technically shambolic" in our State of Decay 2 review.

Now, developer Undead Labs has released a huge 20GB patch that aims to fix the game's glaring issues.

Patch 1.2 includes bug fixes, gameplay tune-ups and quality of life improvements, Undead Labs said. This "significant" download comes "just in time for a leisurely weekend of apocalypse survival".

Big ticket changes include stability, performance and multiplayer improvements:

  • Increased stability
  • Improved networking interactions for clients
  • Improved networked vehicle interactions
  • Elimination of Out Of Memory crashes

But there are loads of smaller quality of life fixes, too. For more, check out the patch notes.

In a personal note, Undead Labs boss Jeff Strain said this patch "is just the beginning".
