State of Decay 2 fans rejoice, A new story based adventure was revealed at E3, and the best news it’s live now! Heartland Invites gamers to take back Trumbull Valley, in what promises to be State of Decay 2’s biggest content release yet!
The New DLC is included with Xbox Game Pass for both PC and Console players, and is also available in the Xbox One and Windows 10 stores for £8.39.
In the new adventure Heartland, players engage in a thrilling story-based experience that combines the nostalgia of Trumbull Valley (which featured in the original State of Decay) with new features and some awesome challenges.
Heartland features two starting pairs of survivors to choose from, each of whom have come to Trumbull Valley in search of a familiar face from the original State of Decay. There’s Quincy, an ex-con and member of the Network, and his partner Helena, who are here searching for an old friend of their boss, Lily Ritter. Or choose Larisse, the long-lost daughter of local criminal Mickey Wilkerson, accompanied by her aunt Fiona.
Returning players will find the familiar towns of Spencer’s Mill and Marshall are now overrun with an advanced form of blood plague that’s more aggressive than anything seen before.
For newcomers to State of Decay 2, there’s never been a better time to dive in and test your zombie apocalypse plan alongside five million fellow survivors who built a community and survived the outbreak.
