We've known for a while now that State of Decay 2 would be enhanced for Xbox One X, though we didn't exactly have a lot of details as to what those enhancements would entail. Jeff Strain, the head of the game's developer studio, Undead Labs, confirmed as much in a recent interview. In short, the game will be taking full advantage of the greater power of the Xbox One X to make the game look as good as it can.
Unlike other big-budget titles that have since run into the loot box controversy, Undead Labs will not be turning to loot crates or microtransactions to entice players to pay more after they already bought "State of Decay 2". This news is made even more notable considering that the first State of Decay, which was released on the Xbox 360 in 2013, did feature microtransactions.

A literal "thumb drive" USB stick is also included, alongside an iron-on State of Decay 2 patch.
State of Decay 2 is coming to Xbox One and PC this May, and with it you'll get a set of some pretty cool extras if you decide to purchase the State of Decay 2 Collector's Edition. Last week, we announced that State of Decay 2 will be launching on May 22, 2018 with both a Standard Edition and an Ultimate Edition (as well as a part of Xbox Game Pass). So, in one interpretation, the Collector's Edition actually costs at least $99.98, if you intend to play the game.
