State of Decay fans can revel in excitement with the reveal of State of Decay 2’s Homecoming DLC at Gamescom 2021.
Undead Labs showcased a trailer for the DLC as a celebration of hitting 10 million lifetime players.
This new DLC to be released on September 1st of this year will include a new map which is a remastered Trumbull Valley, the original map from the first game. As well as this, the DLC will include new weapons and outfits themed around said map, new bases, two new achievements, a new bounty pack, and also new story missions said to tie up narrative threads of the Trumbull Valley saga.
Although the DLC is to be set after the events of Heartland, the map appears to be rid of all the blood plague walls that were prominent in Heartland and will now feature two new territories that the former didn’t have. In addition to this, whereas Heartland was a linear story DLC that was separate from the main campaign, Homecoming isn’t and will let you transfer all of your community members and inventory to the new map.
So far, the game currently has 4 maps (5 including the Heartland exclusive map) as opposed to the original State of Decay which only had one.
Despite a hardcore following, the game was plagued with a number of technical issues upon its initial release. However, this didn’t stop Undead Labs from continuously updating the game with performance patches and content updates over the years to make it one of the most immersive zombie survival experiences on gaming platforms to date.
