    Windows 10 Gaming and more State of Decay slots now available


    Thank you to everyone who signed up for the State of Decay flight on version 18334. We received an overwhelming response to the flight and are very grateful for your support!

    Today, in addition to State of Decay we also have some exciting news to share about flighting additional Windows Gaming features. In the coming days / weeks / months – you will find us using this flight ring to give you a preview of the latest and greatest things we are building for our gaming audience.

    To get everything this ring has to offer, we would recommend that you are on Windows 10 version 18329 or higher. But there is something even for those of you who are on older versions of Windows 10 (17763).

    REMINDER: BattlEye software (used by Fortnite, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and other popular games) does not work correctly with builds flighted to the Windows Insider Fast ring since December. If you have a machine that is not already enrolled in Windows Insider Fast, and you play games that use BattlEye software, we recommend you do not join Windows Insider Fast on that personal computer. We are working closely with BattlEye and individual games are being updated with new BattlEye software to make sure they work properly with new Windows builds.

    Here is a quick overview of the instructions to join the ring:

    1. If you have an Xbox Live Gamertag (you most likely have one already if you are reading this!), go to step 2 below. If you don’t have a Gamertag, use your Microsoft Account (MSA) to log into https://account.xbox.com and create an Xbox account. Once completed, you will see your Gamertag in the top right of the page. 
    2. Install the Xbox Insider Hub app on the PC you’ll be flighting on (link opens in Store app). 
    3. Sign in to the Xbox Insider Hub with your Gamertag. 
    4. Select Insider Content in the upper left
    5. Select Windows Gaming
    6. If you are on 18329 or higher, you will be automatically enrolled into Game bar. You can then manually enroll into the flight for State of Decay: Year One
    7. If you are on 17763, you will be automatically enrolled only into the Game bar flight

    For details on how to get the latest version of Windows, scroll down to the bottom of this post. Now, the fun part!

    State of Decay: Year One (Windows 10 version 18329 or higher)
    Try out State of Decay on a new version of Windows

    We’re pleased to announce that we have a new Windows version (18342) with fixes and improvements that we can’t wait to have folks try out!

    • If you have already tried State of Decay and everything worked: we’d appreciate you uninstalling State of Decay and then trying the install again, to make sure everything works.
    • If you have already tried State of Decay and something didn’t work: please try again and see if your issue has been addressed. If not, it would help us a lot if you let us know using the Feedback Hub in Windows (instructions). Even if you already sent feedback on the issue before, it’s very helpful to know that it’s still happening on a new version of Windows.
    • If you were not able to get a slot for State of Decay: we’ve opened up more slots now, so please try again

    If you see any problems downloading or installing the game, or if important functionality like game saving isn’t working, please be sure to use the Feedback Hub to tell us. And thank you again for helping us find any issues!

    Game bar (Windows 10 version 17763 or higher)

    • Other fixes and polish to our experiences around Game capturing and Sharing to Twitter

    In the coming weeks you will be the first to receive the latest and greatest updates for the Game bar.

    Instructions on how to get the latest version of Windows

    More chances to play State of Decay and New Update Available


    Still haven’t had a chance to get the game State of Decay for free (for a limited time)? More slots are available again! Whether you’ve tried it in earlier builds or haven’t had the chance yet, these instructions have everything you need.

    Installed the Insider version of State of Decay already? We’ll be trying out an update later today. To get it, launch the Store app, click […] and then “Downloads and Updates”. Once installed, you shouldn’t see any difference in the game – it’s just a test update – but please let us know if anything doesn’t work!

    IMPORTANT: You now need to be on a Windows Insider build that is 18353 or later to install the test version of State of Decay! This is because of new fixes in those builds, which we want to make sure work as expected.

    Thanks for participating – you are making Windows gaming better!
