State of Decay 2 $70 Collector’s Edition Doesn’t Include the Game

State of Decay 2 is set to launch on May 22, for both Xbox One and PC, with the more hardcore fans likely wanting to grab the Collector’s Edition. I’ll admit, it does look pretty cool, with the even the latex mask coming in useful during Halloween, or a fancy dress party. At $70, I guess it could be worth it, especially with the game coming included… Oh wait, no, the game isn’t included?!

I don’t know what Microsoft was expecting here, as this was surely going to make headlines. It would probably have been easier to just bundle the game with the mask and other goodies, set the price at $100, and celebrate happy days. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case, and those paying $70 for the State of Decay 2 Collector’s Edition, will also have to fork out an additional $30+ for access to the game.

Here’s what the State of Decay 2 Collector’s Edition does include:

The Collector’s Edition includes an exclusive SteelBook® case, zombie mask, and “thumb-drive,” this collectible edition also includes a State of Decay 2 patch and a human brain SteelBook® stand. Fans can pre-order the Collector’s Edition today at their favorite retailer for $69.99.
