State of Decay 2 immerses you in an all-new, multiplayer zombie survival fantasy.

When the dead rose, civilization ended. The world as you knew it is gone. Now you and the few scattered survivors must band together to survive and rebuild. You choose where to make your stand, designing and fortifying your home base, performing daring raids for food and ammunition, and rescuing other playable survivors with unique talents. The open, sandbox world develops in real time, shaped by your actions and dynamically generating content based on your choices and the ever-increasing zombie threat.

Build a lasting community, working with other players or solo to overcome challenges while exploring your own unique story in a world that remembers the choices you make.

How will you survive the zombie apocalypse?


After wiping out the blood plague and celebrating your legacy with this festive pack, get ready for completely separate shenanigans in the upcoming Daybreak Pack, arriving on Sept. 12, 2018.

That all-new content lets you take the fight to the zombies, featuring an exciting new mode where you play as a well-equipped Red Talon soldier. You’ll work to complete a challenging objective while protecting your fortified position against waves of zombies and freaks to earn new rewards and weapons.

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.

Key Features:

  • Play as a Community of Individuals in an Open-World Adventure

    • Use your community’s unique array of individuals to forge a path through the game that is personal to you. Your choices shape the identity of your community, ensuring that no two stories are alike.

  • RPG Progression Systems for Individuals, Base, and Community
    • Develop each survivor's traits and skills to improve their capabilities and strengthen your community.
    • Collect resources to build and fortify your base, unlocking crucial new facilities and valuable community options along the way.
    • Elevate your favorite survivors to leadership roles in your community by heeding their advice and completing their goals, and unlock new community benefits and objectives that suit your leader’s ideals.
    • Manage the relationships and goals of your survivors to build a strong community that has a lasting impact on the future of your world.
  • Four-player Co-op Multiplayer
    • Play solo, or for the first time ever in the “State of Decay” franchise, with up to three of your friends.
