State of Decay 2: Heartland Expansion Is Available Now - E3 2019 - IGN

State of Decay 2 / 9 Jun 2019 2:13 PM PDT

State of Decay 2: Heartland, the zombie survival title's biggest expansion yet, features a brand new story and is available now on the Xbox One, Xbox One X, and PC.

This new expansion allows you to play one of two storylines in a return to Trumbull Valley.

One story has players following a woman on her quest to find a father she never knew who hasn't been seen since the outbreak. The last place he was seen was Trumbull Valley.

The other tale has you following a man finding a hero he's never met who hasn't radioed in days. The last time he heard his hero's voice he was in Trumbull Valley.

Each new character is traveling with a companion and Trumbull Valley is apparently filled with "unseen horrors."

The Heartland expansion arrives after State of Decay 2's Choose Your Own Apocalypse update that brought with it the Dread Zone and Nightmare Zone difficulties.

State of Decay 2 released last year, and in our review, we said "State of Decay 2's survival RPG struggle against zombies is fun thanks to strong combat and fear of permanent death but repetitive and buggy, especially in co-op."
