State of Decay 2 Update 24 Patch Notes: Mouse & Keyboard Support for Xbox

State of Decay Update 24 adds new recruiting options, Trumbull Valley pack, and mouse & keyboard support for Xbox players.

Although Undead Labs officially confirmed working on State of Decay 3 with a cinematic trailer in Xbox Games Showcase last year, it doesn’t mean the developer is done with State of Decay 2. The game will still receive support and new content, and the State of Decay 2 Update 24 patch notes prove that Undead Labs still has big plans for its ongoing post-apocalyptic adventure.

Yesterday on February 8, State of Decay 2 Update 24 went live and brought some anticipated features to the game such as Mouse & Keyboard support for console players. The first noticeable addition to the game which is actually a gift from Undead Labs to all State of Decay 2 players is a new T-shirt inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement that will be available in your closet once you log in to the game.

The next big change coming to the game is the new wave of recruiting. As of now, you can recruit every non-hostile ambient enclave that is not involved in a mission or situation by paying some influence. The only thing you need to do is to contact a new enclave using radio and have a meeting. Here are the full details:

  • Allied enclaves still allow you to recruit for free, as they always have.
  • Friendly enclaves now allow you to recruit for 750 Influence.
  • Neutral enclaves now allow you to recruit for 1500 Influence.

Moreover, the update has brought the Trumbull Valley Pack which includes six weapons, four outfits, and the Improvised Weapon Station that allows you to craft various useful weapons.

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

Last but not least, State of Decay 2 now supports Mouse & Keyboard on the Xbox consoles, which means you are no longer forced to use controllers if you’d like to play the game with Mouse & Keyboard.

State of Decay 2 Juggernaut Edition is now available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Xbox Game Pass subscribers on all platforms can play the game for free.
