Xbox One additions
Community Challenges and Rewards
New content: More than you can pack into a single backpack, “State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition” has enough content to satiate new and old fans alike:
New Mission Type: Cleo Drop
Mysterious military-looking supply crates are dropping into remote areas across all maps, and their beacons seem to attract massive hordes of zombies. If you’ve got the firepower, you can pick up some of the rarest and most powerful equipment in the game.
New vehicles: SUV…and more
The new SUV sets a new standard for durability, and it doesn’t end there — brand-new vehicle skins are distributed across all maps.
Unlocking Heroes: Lifeline Roster
Your favorite characters from “Lifeline” can now be unlocked in “Breakdown” with a new set of Challenges. Hop into the familiar boots of Hawkes, Kilo, and Vince … or take control of the previously unplayable Kelly “Sasquatch” Eldridge.
New weapons: Under-barrel attachments and Incendiary Ammo
Now if you find the right weapons, you can switch to an under-barrel grenade launcher or a masterkey shotgun on your assault rifle … or load incendiary ammunition into any shotgun, and take out crowds of zombies without even switching weapons.
Featuring 30 minutes of intense new music from award winning composer Jesper Kyd.
The facility actions from ‘Lifeline’ now show up in every version of the game, including ammo-refilling and snack-making at your base. NPC Enclaves are also getting a makeover, making it easier to trade and build trust with them.
