The Daybreak DLC pack is available free of charge for those who purchased the Ultimate Edition or it can be purchased separately for $9.99. According to Microsoft, the newest DLC pack will feature a new re-playable, a co-op game mode, but will also include a new freak – the Blood Plague Juggernaut.
Here’s an overview of the DLC courtesy of Microsoft:
Daybreak Pack is a brand-new game mode for State of Decay 2 – a re-playable co-op “zombie siege” experience. Players and up to three teammates will take up the role of highly-skilled Red Talon soldiers with access to new high-end weaponry tasked with defending a fortified position where a technician tries to repair a critical satellite relay. In order to make it to Daybreak players will have to fight off waves of zombies that get more numerous and difficult to defeat, including extra dangerous freak zombies which can wreak havoc on the base.
Daybreak Pack also sees the introduction of a new freak – the ultra-challenging Blood Plague Juggernaut – which not only can take out the whole base but infects attacked players with Blood Plague, creating an extra layer of peril as players try to survive until the morning.
To tackle this challenge there are now a variety of higher-powered CLEO weapons including nine new ranged weapons, six new melee weapons and six new deployable explosives. These weapons can also be unlocked for the player’s base game as well as new accessories and base upgrades, including the opportunity to bring a Red Talon soldier into your base community. Lastly players can look forward to a new set of achievements worth a total of 250 Gamerscore!
State of Decay 2 is available now for Xbox One. Those who subscribed to Xbox Game Pass can get the game free of charge and the DLC pack at a ten percent discount.
