State of Decay 2 Crosses 2 Million Players

State of Decay 2 creates record by bagging over 2 million players in first two weeks of worldwide launch.

Open world zombie survival game State of Decay 2 from Undead Labs and Microsoft Studios was out on May 22 and got an amazing start. Within two days after launch, the game has built a strong community of over 1 million players. Now, in less than two weeks of release on PC and Xbox One, they have gathered a force of 2 million survivors. It's really remarkable to see these many players sharing a post-apocalyptic world for resources and fighting undead hordes to keep up.

With so many players participating in the game, there are many interesting numbers popping out. For example, survivors have already slain nearly 2 billion zombies, which is one third of Earth's population now! Over 121,000 community stories were completed at the same time and newer ones were built on map for facing new challenges. Players have learned to stay alive for straight three days on average and all of these numbers indicates their dedication and excitement.

The developers are also tirelessly trying to provide major bug-fixes, minor tuning in gameplay and other improvements for a satisfying experience playing. Additional contents and regular updates will maintain their flow from Undead Labs to sustain this incredible community. The already refined story setup charmed its magic through a bit of open-world exploring, slight role-playing, some third-person action during zombie-killing and then nicely balancing all of those aspects together.

Needless to say, State of Decay 2 has just begun its steps and more bands of survivors will join soon, which we hope to grow even further. You begin your journey in a small-town of America and start a quest for scavenging while constantly trying to save your skin from zombies; you build up a community to start a new life at the end of the world and contribute as much as you can, which is the whole game in a nutshell. So, when are you finally joining the big hustle, eh?

Fortnite Is Coming to Nintendo Switch

The biggest games in the world, Fortnite may be coming to the fastest growing Nintendo console.

Only a day before, we've learnt from a leak that popular Battle Royale shooter Fortnite is coming to Nintendo Switch virtual console. The leaked image showing a list of unannounced games for Switch showed up on image-board site 4chan. Recently, Game Content Rating Classification Committee of South Korea have rated a Switch version of the game, which definitely means it is not a hoax and will probably be announced on Nintendo's E3 2018 Nintendo Direct.

A number of upcoming Switch ports were on that list, which a guy working on showroom displays for E3 2018 apparently took a picture of and then leaked it to the image-board forum site earlier. To be honest, it looks legit than most fake leaks out there. If that booth layout is genuine then Dragon Ball FighterZ from Bandai Namco, FIFA 19, arcade-hit title Killer Queen Black, party cooking game Overcooked! 2, free-to-play shooter Paladins from Hi-Rez Studios and Starlink: Battle for Atlas from Ubisoft is also on their way to Switch.

It was only a matter of time that this massive franchise now has joined Nintendo Switch to create more hype.

Fortnite has been creating a lot of buzz recently and after debuting on Mac and PC, they even hit both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. It's been only a short while that they have launched on iOS, with an Android release expecting to land this summer. It even managed to leave its biggest and primary competitor PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds behind by a huge number, whether it is on popularity, current player count or even revenue stream from various media.

After the game successfully lands on Switch, it will truly triumph over every major platform. Aside from this popular Battle Royale game, there were a few other big-name E3 2018 games listed from third-party developers for Nintendo Switch virtual console. Bandai Namco's Dragon Ball FighterZ tops the list, then came football simulator FIFA 19, one popular arcade title re-branded as Killer Queen Black, party cooking game Overcooked! 2, another free-to-play shooter Paladins and action-adventure Starlink: Battle for Atlas.

We did not include the name of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate on the list above for obvious reason as it was already announced earlier this month. Mario Tennis Aces is seemingly the only first party game from this leak that Nintendo is bringing on E3, which is quite unusual. Since there is no other Battle Boyale games currently on Switch port, Epic Games has made a well devised move to seize momentum on this trendy platform and score a big time competition here!

State of Decay 2 Crosses 1 Million Players

State of Decay 2 breaks record by gathering over 1 million players in first two days of global release.

Open world zombie survival game State of Decay 2 from Undead Labs and Microsoft Studios has saw worldwide release only two days ago and they are already on news. Yes, within two days after launching on PC and Xbox One, the game has amassed over 1 million players. Considering the number in such a short period of time, zombie apocalypse is finally gathering people for a single reason. Now, only trick is to survive waves after waves of zombie hordes.

Ultimate Edition of the game has opened it up for owners of a copy on May 18 and then the rest pour in on May 22 with their Standard Edition. With that, there are currently a million different stories of survival around the world and everyone is having their own unique experiences. Following launch, the game has been played for over six million hours and there is gameplay footage of almost worth 3.5 million hours from different streamers on Mixer, Twitch and YouTube.

There are some more interesting numbers we would like to add. For instance, 6 million firecrackers and fireworks were thrown for either signaling fellow survivors to get help or celebrate success in post-apocalyptic world. Players have collectively read 2 million textbooks and ate 6 million bags of snack. Over 675 million zombies were exterminated and that means an average player have killed more than 600 of them alone. Average survival period was three in-game days and some even managed to stretch to a full month.

However, you should realize that assembling 1 million players doesn't necessarily means that it has sold over a million copies. Even if it sounds confusing, we need to consider that the game is currently up on Xbox One's game streaming service Xbox Game Pass and subscribing members of this service are allowed to play it for free. So, you can see how that thing works now.

Being the only exciting Xbox One-exclusive game of this year aside from the slightly disappointing Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2 is under a lot of pressure from before the release. Yet, numbers are surely looking exciting for Undead Labs and Microsoft Studios' join effort project. Because of dealing with a number of bugs, it also failed to land an impressive review from critics. Although it is a successful sequel that lived up to every expectation, it still has a long way to go.

Epic Games have yet not specified when these competitions will begin but they have stated last month that, during E3 2018 in June, they will kick-start 100-person tournament which will be called Fortnite Party Royale. The developers were also not very specific about how they are planning to play it out except the mention of trying to do something out of the box. So, they might actually be up to something and may even break the traditional inspiration for such contests.

No Man's Sky Getting Multiplayer

No Man’s Sky’s big multiplayer update is finally launches in July to to race, build and dogfight with friends.

One of the main features co-founder of developer studio Hello Games, Sean Murray had announced about their action-adventure survival game No Man’s Sky was multiplayer during pre-launch of the game. However, that was missing upon release and became one of the major causes for a huge backlash from fans. They sure have to keep themselves from making that sort of marketing missteps and in effort to improve the game; they are bringing true multiplayer experience.

No Man's Sky Getting Multiplayer

You probably know by now that, Hello Games will be bringing the next big update for their 2016's release this summer and it will be released for Xbox One as well. Titled “NEXT”, this update will drop on July 24 with a full-fledged multiplayer mode that may finally bring an end to an era after awaiting two years in hope and feeling betrayed. Looks like the studio is finally up for earning some redemption by delivering what they promised for this space exploration adventure.



Initially failing to provide a lot that they actually had in stores, the game forced UK’s Advertising Standards Authority to investigate on Hello Games and its small team of approximately twelve employees. It was really surprising that even after allying up with a publisher like Sony, they would even try to do that. However, they are occasionally releasing a series of free updates to provide those features that weren't there during release and make amends for all those misleading promises.

Although partial features of multiplayer was already implemented through their third major update “The Atlas Rises”, which was released on the game's one year anniversary, the new announcement by Murray suggests that everything is going to change and more players will be taking part when the real deal comes to play. So, the excitement and fun of base building, surviving and racing together is no longer a far-fetched dream in No Man’s Sky then? Only time will tell.

We have an interview of Sean Murray coming to Inside Xbox web series to announce Multiplayer and the anticipated release date for “NEXT” update.




No Man’s Sky is already available to play on PC and PlayStation 4 and now finally coming to Xbox One along with an enhanced version for Xbox One X. Finally all 18 quintillion planets of the game are coming together very soon and some of the players are still quite skeptical but can you really blame them? We only hope that upcoming fourth major expansion really delivers what they promised and players finally get what they have been waiting for.

Fortnite: Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup

With the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos has already taken down The Avengers while wiping out half the universe and now, he has set his sight for Fortnite Battle Royale. If you play your part just right then you can also become The Mad Titan wielding his Infinity Gauntlet. Despite the game releasing a variety of skins that looks like many familiar characters like John Wick or Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy, this is the first-ever major crossover for Fortnite and is going to last for a limited time.

With collaboration with Marvel Studios, Epic Games have now added Thanos and he appears in a special mode called Infinity War. This one comes with their weekly update 1.59 and possibly one of the weirdest modes ever. Although, you don't immediately become the only survivor of the match or just as he likes to balance everything, The Mad Titan does not wipe out half the participants upon finding the Gauntlet but does gets into a rage of destruction or players can do that with him.

There is no rocket science behind this new mode and it starts just like every other match for every for solo players, because squads or duos are not allowed in this mode. Right after you are dropped into the map, you go out seeking to wipe out your competition while also looking for the Infinity Gauntlet. When you finally find it to claim for yourself, you become Thanos and this one is not just a cool looking skin. Like his movie version, he is a force to be reckoning with even though there is no Hulk.

Upon becoming The Mad Titan, players will be given 700 health and 300 shields, which are way above than what regular brawlers gets. However, he is not able to regain his health if hurt but his shields regenerates with kills. Instead of being able to pick up weapons, he some special moves including Leaping, Punching, Shooting Beams and Smashing. Before anyone picks the Gauntlet, no one really knows where it is but as soon as someone becomes mighty Thanos, it is picked up on everyone’s radar.

In spite of bringing balance, the one who gets to become The Mad Titan actually greatly upsets it. Even though he will be very difficult to take down but by working together in groups players can eventually bring him down if they are willing to. You can join in this limited time event “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup” in Epic Games' sandbox survival battle royale game Fortnite, which is now available to play on mobile devices, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
