    I've been waiting for this one! But why $29 for the standard edition? Seems low for a new release. Is it going to be half of a game?

    Who's selling it for 29?

    It just looks like thats the price its going to be. The Ultimate Edition is just adding the original game and the 2 dlcs which I already own.  

    Its on Game Pass Day 1 so thats how I will be playing it. ;)

    Thanks, I look forward to buying it in 2 - 3 years when I assemble a Win 10/11/whatever system.  Or when Microsoft decides to make more money and releases it for earlier OSes.

    I'm actually interested in this myself, so can't wait to dive into the game in 2 more months.

    Do you have to have an xbox live sub to play the co-op part on pc? Their site says you have to have one to play it on the xbox but doesn't say anything about the pc.

    No cost for Xbox Live on PC.

    Half tempted. 

    I have the first one and it was quite promising but the game just ran like dogshit on my machine. Low FPS and absolutely tons of graphical glitches regardless of what settings I chose. I blame the engine as all games using that engine seemed to run like crap on my machine, but it looks like they've switched from CryEngine to Unreal for the sequel. 

    What I'd like to see from the new game:
    • Better vehicle handling - vehicles in the first one were pretty terrible, felt like driving games from the 90s
    • More base customisations - this was my primary reason for wanting to play. I really wanted to select and build a base and make it my own, but the options in the first one were quite limited. It was still fun, but after your first two or three bases I really lost interest because there was nothing more to look forwards to. 
    • Deeper combat - I'm a fan of lots of skills. I'd like to see more interesting ways to kill zombies!

    I understand it was their first time in the new game but those players were damaging each other almost as much as they were zeds.  Throwing molotovs, running into molotovs,  running into fireworks, running people over with cars, leaving each other and the non-player npcs behind when they finally did decide to get in cars.

    The game play wasn't that different from the first game.

    Is this going to be released on Steam? It would irritate me to have the first game on Steam and then the sequel on something else.
