    Just reserved the standard edition in Argos for £22.99.

    Can't really complain at that price. Will pop along later and pick it up.

    Donít think it warrants the AVOID but itís hardly breaking new ground from the first. Iíve encountered a few bugs like a rapidly flickering hud and an immortal plague heart that would not die no matter how many times I bombed it.
    Still enjoying it though, playing at night time with headphones on is nice and atmospheric.

    Gamepass is £8(?) for a month. It's peanuts. Just grab a month and play this as much as you want. If it's shit, play something else they have there to make up the less-than-a-tenner value.

    I don't really understand how anyone is complaining about having used a 2 week trial when it's so cheap.

    Well, that's fair :) But it;s not going anywhere, and it's a lot cheaper than just buying it.

    I bought the original some time last year in a sale, so I have that to check out before I get to this one.

    Update to this, its £21.99 in Sainsbury's. And CEX will give £24 cash for it, so you can't lose ;)

    I'm quite enjoying this, I'm up to Day 4.

    One of my group literally had her head shot off earlier after we got attacked by another enclave whilst trying to sort out a dispute over meds.... It was quite shocking for some reason - she was pretty good too!!

    Really enjoying this. Had my first run in with a bad group of humans and my guy nearly got killed.

    @solidsneek seems random.

    I went to help another group who had their med supplies stolen and tried to get it back peacefully but as soon as I picked the bag up the thief shot the npc then attacked me

    I am really enjoying this so far. Didn't play the first one but love how casual it seems to be honest yet challenging at the same time. Can see funny things happening and I am playing solo.

    The nighttime is scary. Am only just at the beginning, but set out for some supplies. Went into loot gathering mode, so when I finally found what I was looking for I didn't have any space. So dropped the ruck sack I was carrying thinking I'd picked up the other one. Left the warehouse, but it was dark out. Made it home after scrambling through the darkness, avoiding the red eyes, only to find that I'd left the supplies I wanted! /o\

    It's still dark and I don't want to leave the relative safety of my safe house... But oh do I wish that people would close the bloody gates!!

    Re-upped my Game Pass sub earlier and downloaded this on PC and XBO. Played about an hour or so on the PC and I'm having fun. I, err, accidentally upgraded storage with the materials I needed to build an infirmary though, and then had to go out at night to find more. So yeah. Maybe don't do that.

    I'm guessing this game makes the first obsolete now so little value in looking at the special edition with the two in it?

    I donít think I could go back to the first game after playing this. Iím not sure what other benefits the special edition has, maybe a season pass or something? Itís a much more polished game than the first too.

    Really enjoying this now, though I still havenít managed to take out a plague heart. Night time foraging is fairly tense especially when you see the red eyes of a plague walker. My poor film critic Tim was mauled by fatties on a midnight snack run.

    Sorry Tim.

    We had to take one out, my Mrs was on pc couldn't quite work out how to use the explosives and almost blew herself up. I couldn't stop fighting off the waves of zombies to help her so she ended up shooting it until it died. Almost died having to deal with them all myself as well.

    A wife not knowing how to correctly handle explosives is grounds for divorce.

    A quick punch sorted it out, although it left me with a black eye.

    My next step is to take out a plague heart, but I think I'm going to wait 'til a mate is past the tutorial so I can use him as bai... I mean, ask him for assistance.

    So where did everyone pick for a starting area? I went to the Foothills.

    What's the verdict generally? Tempted by the pc version (not interested in co-op though, if it affects anything).

    It being on Windows Store is more off putting than the reviews.

    Is loot persistent? Instead of losing shit due to insufficient capacity, can you just dump a rucksack in a room and turn it in to storage as and when required?

    Yep just drop it and it should stay - not sure if it's indefinite though.
