What's new with State of Decay 2

Heartland Choose Your Own Apocalypse Zedhunter Update Daybreak Pack Independence Pack

Welcome to Heartland

State of Decay 2: Heartland features a return to Trumbull Valley in a new story-based adventure. Once the iconic site of the original State of Decay game, the towns of Spencer’s Mill and Marshall are now overrun with an advanced form of blood plague: a more aggressive and far deadlier version than exists anywhere else. Though it may be familiar territory to those who homesteaded here years ago, Trumbull Valley is packed with new dangers... and unspeakable horrors.


Choose Your Own Apocalypse

The Choose Your Own Apocalypse Update is a free upgrade for all State of Decay 2 players, including Xbox Game Pass subscribers. The update includes two additional difficulty options — Dread Zones and Nightmare Zones. Dread Zones are designed to offer exciting new challenges to experienced State of Decay 2 players. Nightmare Zones are grueling endurance tests for truly hardcore players. You can bring an existing community to one of these zones via the new Difficulty Screen (to the right of the Base Screen), or start a brand-new community within one.

Beware! Permadeath is still a thing, and these new zones are much more unforgiving than Standard Zones.


Zedhunter Update

The Zedhunter Update is the first free content update for State of Decay 2. It introduces the highly requested crossbow to State of Decay 2. It also adds new melee and close-combat weapons, a new option to reset core skill specializations, new quirk skills, new consumables, and new missions that introduce this content.


Daybreak Pack

The DAYBREAK PACK introduces a brand-new game mode of co-op siege defense to State of Decay 2. You and up to three teammates play Red Talon soldiers armed with high-end weaponry. Together, you must defend your fortified position against waves of oncoming zombies, while a vulnerable technician repairs a critical satellite relay. The longer you last, the more rewards you earn for your home community of survivors.

Four player co-op multiplayer

Play solo or team up with up to three friends to explore an open world filled with dynamic zombies, human enemies, and the valuable gear necessary to keep your community alive.

Your choices define your survival story

In the zombie apocalypse, you must create your own moral code. Every decision has lasting consequences that you must face. How you decide to survive may surprise you.

Home Improvement: Apocalypse Edition

In State of Decay 2, your base is more than just a place for your survivors to sleep at night. It's your sanctuary, offering protection against the hungry dead lurking beyond the wall. It's your command post, where you plan the perfect zombie-killing strategies. Most of all, it's a manifestation of your personal long-term survival strategies as you customize it with your ideal facilities and improvements. Will you build a watch tower or plant a garden? An infirmary or a workshop? How will you choose to carve out a small slice of civilization from the chaotic apocalypse?
