Survive Until Daybreak with State of Decay 2's Newest DLC
The stakes are higher in the game's latest content addition.
The latest piece of downloadable content for the Microsoft-exclusive State of Decay 2 was just released late last week and has been making waves (of zombies). Known as the Daybreak Pack, it introduces "a brand-new game mode for State of Decay 2, a re-playable co-op 'zombie siege' experience." Below you can find a detailed description of carnage found within the DLC.
- Team up with friends. Players and up to three teammates play as highly skilled Red Talon soldiers armed with high-end weaponry; together, they will defend a fortified position against waves of oncoming zombies, while a vulnerable technician repairs a critical satellite relay.
- New enemies and weapons. Among the waves of regular and special zombies players will need to ward off will be a new enemy – the Blood Plague Juggernaut! This is a tougher version of the already powerful juggernaut who will expose players to blood plague. To combat this new scourge, players have access to a new set of CLEO weapons including eight new ranged weapons, six new melee weapons and six new deployable explosives.
- New rewards and achievements. The more waves you survive, the more rewards you earn. Rewards and unlocked items can be used to fight more efficiently in future Daybreak sessions and players will also be able to access those same unlocked items for their main community of survivors, giving access to the new CLEO weapons, additional accessories and upgrades for their base – including the opportunity to bring in a Red Talon soldier. Lastly Daybreak Pack comes with over two dozen new achievements for State of Decay 2 worth 250 Gamerscore!
The Daybreak Pack is available for $9.99, or included free for owners of the game's Ultimate Edition. Can you survive the waves of the undead or will you find yourself unable to break through the night?
