It seems gamers are still hungry for zombies: more than a million players swarmed into State of Decay 2 since the game’s May 18 early access launch and wide release May 22.

That’s good news for Microsoft, who hasn’t had much in the way of exclusives to offer on the Xbox One lately. The company shared some additional week one stats: players have streamed 3.5 million hours of gameplay in 41,000 unique broadcasts, and have already killed 675 million zombies.

Less impressive? Players seem to survive for an average of three in-game days, although some have lasted a full month.
