Undead Labs' survival sequel State of Decay 2 will launch on PC and Xbox One on May 22, Microsoft has announced. What's more, the platform holder confirmed that the standard edition of the game will cost a wallet-friendly $29.99.

There's still an option to splash out if you want to, with the State of Decay 2 Ultimate Edition retailing for $49.99, which gives you access to the game on May 18 plus an Xbox One copy of State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition. If that wasn't enough, the Ultimate Edition also throws in the downloadable content packs, Independence and Daybreak.

'Our goal is to build a long-term relationship with the State of Decay community and to foster deeper experiences with the franchise,' commented Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg. 'We believe State of Decay 2 accomplishes this goal by immersing fans in the ultimate zombie survival fantasy, and we want to give more players the opportunity to join in and experience this unique game.'
