Check out some of the highlighted post from the Xbox Wire provided from Philip Holt, Head of Development at Undead Labs down below:

Today, we are thrilled to announce State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition, an expanded and improved version that takes everything you love about State of Decay 2 and adds tons of new content and improvements for veteran and new players alike. We created a brand-new open world map for players to explore in a rugged logging town named Providence Ridge, and we completely rebuilt the post-tutorial experience to better teach players the key facets of playing State of Decay 2.

There’s also a new category of heavy melee weapons that reward player skill and timing, a wide range of graphical improvements (including better lighting and foliage optimization for better performance), and dodge and stealth are now split into separate commands as part of an improved control scheme. We also fixed dozens of mission and gameplay bugs to ensure a better experience for all players, improved the audio experience, including additional music that doubles the total amount in the game, and more.

In related news, Microsoft has announced a brand new batch of games will be headed to its subscription service, Xbox Game Pass. The lineup of games includes a mixed bag of different games and genres for your liking, including some great titles like Ninja Gaiden 2, Kingdom Hearts 3 Enhanced Edition, and plenty more. Check out the full set of games heading to the service this month right here!
