State of Decay 2 patch 2.1 available for download, fixes several issues, full release notes revealed

Undead Labs has released a new update for its latest zombie survival game, State of Decay 2. According to the release notes, patch 2.1 fixes several missions that occasionally couldn’t be completed due to missing items and fixes an issue where sometimes newly recruited community members would overlap or be standing too close to others on the Community screen.

In addition, this latest update allows characters to properly gain experience in their close combat specialization when fighting with their close combat weapon, positions correctly the newly selected leaders on the Community screen, and re-orients correctly characters on the Community screen when changes are made to the community.

Microsoft’s Windows Store will download this patch the next time you launch its client, and you can find its complete changelog below.
