Latest ‘State of Decay 2’ Update Adds Extra Control Support For Consoles, Ally Recruitment Changes And More

In spite of the focus on State of Decay 3‘s development, Undead Labs have given State of Decay 2 players something to chew on in the form of a new update. The recent Update 24 not only adds mouse & keyboard support for Xbox players, but adds a some new goodies to the game, including the ability to recruit any non-hostile NPC into your fold.

With the new update, you can recruit every non-hostile enclave member that is not involved in a mission or situation. Of course, you’ll have to cough up some Influence to do it. But other than that, the only thing you need to do is to contact a new enclave using a radio and have a meeting.

  • Allied enclaves still allow you to recruit for free
  • Friendly enclaves now allow you to recruit for 750 Influence
  • Neutral enclaves now allow you to recruit for 1500 Influence

Also included in the update is the Trumbull Valley Pack, which includes six weapons, four outfits, and the Improvised Weapon Station that allows you to craft weapons. As well, seeing that it’s Black History Month, players can also snag a new shirt that will be available in your closet once you log in to the game.

Lastly, Bounty Broker packs will have a new scheduled cycle next month, which means by the beginning of every month, a new pack will be replaced by another one. For example, the Pawn Shop Pack is scheduled to be added to the game in March, with the Fearsome Footage Pack being removed. At the end of the cycle, Fearsome Footage will return to the Bounty Broker.

State of Decay 2 Juggernaut Edition is available for Xbox OneXbox Series, and PC. State of Decay 3 is currently in development for the Xbox Series and PC.
