Today during our “Inside Xbox” segment at gamescom 2018 we revealed new details – new co-op gameplay, new zombies, new loot and more – for the upcoming Daybreak Pack for State of Decay 2. The team at Undead Labs has been thrilled with the community response to the game with well over three million players worldwide, and now fans can check out the next chapter in the ultimate zombie survival experience in person at gamescom where Daybreak Pack will be playable for the first time this week.
Arriving on Sept. 12 the Daybreak Pack is a brand-new game mode for State of Decay 2 – a re-playable co-op “zombie siege” experience:
- 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!
Daybreak Pack will be available for fans who own the Standard Edition for $9.99 (USD*), and is included with the Ultimate Edition at no additional cost. It will also be available at launch for Xbox Game Pass members with a 10% discount. As an Xbox Play Anywhere game, one digital purchase gets you both the Xbox One and the Windows 10 version of the game. In addition to the release of Daybreak Pack, there will be a content update to continue improving player experience.
