    Still can't decide if this is their MMO game or not.

    It says "nobody survives alone" and then the flare goes up. That could be another gamer settlement or could just be A.I

    That's a really clever logo. The eagle skull thing.

    Never played the first one. How is it? Worth a $20 slapdown?

    Very different games, SOD is pretty rough around the edges (worth 20 bucks) but is a fun experience which focuses on exploration and survival.

    Not better or worse. It was a different type of game. Well worth it my opinion. Bought it on the 360 and again on the X1

    Apples to oranges really. I love DL and SoD is really good too, FPS vs. TPS(survival).

    Psyched for SoD2. Co-op was the one feature I badly wanted in the first game, the whole aspect of grouping and surviving smacked of co-op.

    Right, bought the first one on Amazon today. Might as well give it a go.

    Bought the first one - havent finished it either. Too big, and frankly, scares the s*** out of me. Fuk that.

    day one for me. Bought the 360 version and the X1 version and played the s*** out of them both. The game is easily one of the best zombie survival games ever made. The mechanics just make it so engaging.

    Lets just hope the switch to UE 4 will mean better performance.

    I too enjoyed the first one, but didn't feel it was necessary to re-buy it on Xbox One.

    Am looking forward to SOD 2.

    I predict this will be one of the best exclusives on the Xbox One. The co-op portion should make it even better.

    Definitely. Co-op was the one thing that really held back the first game for me.

    I really wish this had the polish/presentation/animation of that Days Gone demo. Would have taken it to another level.

    Yeah I really believe this has the potential to be a cornerstone franchise and would like to see MS work with this studio to keep enhancing the visual quality of the game.

    This is MS's issue, imo. Great gameplay with passable but underwhelming visuals/atmosphere. Sony has the visuals/presentation nailed, but the pure gameplay (while quite adequate) is behind the MS staples.

    Sony just has the edge on presentation, and that has nothing to do with tech, even. That said, I think it's underestimated how much impact presentation has.

    Lighting? Nailed it

    https://www.stateofdecay.com/2017/02/02/day-vs-night/

    Our 3rd week of concept art reveals is upon us and we’ve got a double whammy! Undead Labs and Microsoft Studios are bringing two images this week to really help showcase some differences in how the game is being approached in regards to lighting. Lighting can deceptively sound simple but every facet of geometry needs to be considered in how we light the game. Below as always is more info from the artist themselves about the purpose of this concept and what it’s used for as the game is being developed.

    “Here’s the story behind this week’s image. Not every piece of concept art directly represents something that is in the game. This is a very early piece back when we were working out what a slightly more urban environment might look like, and you shouldn’t expect to see it verbatim. What you can expect to see is what we we’re really doing, which was figuring out what our colors should be under various lighting conditions. It was rigged specifically so we could play with different levels of night and day. In fact, there are two versions of this exact piece. This one is rigged for day, and the other is rigged for night.”

    Without substance, beauty is the arbiter of nothingness. I'd rather be full than hungry.

    Sure, but let's not kid ourselves, the game would be even more with incredible visuals/animation/atmoshpere. Immersion can't be understated, imo

    Sure, everything has its place. I would submit that gameplay and audio are more important to immersion, however.
