Sega CEO Hajime Satomi says he wants to improve the quality of their games moving forward. That could mean a lot of things. It's nice to hear, but what they do next with their games is the real answer.
Chamber of Game: State of Decay: Breakdown
Breakdown adds an entirely separate game mode, allowing you to unlock your starting hero by completing various challenges. Characters from the main game such as Alan Gunderson and Judge Lawton act as leveled up heroes that can also be found in random events in the world. The title refers to the new RV mechanic that acts as your temporary starting location, randomly placed in the world, and integrates a New Game Plus mechanic by finding and repairing a new RV and resetting the whole map, at a higher difficulty. This survival mode never ends; as the level of difficulty increases with each move, resources grow scarce (including cars), zombies increase in number and speed, and freak zombies are a constant threat.
In this episode of Chamber of Game, Eric shows Andrew the greatness of State of Decay and explains the new features of Breakdown while dodging zombies and securing a home site. If you’re looking for a more challenging experience, more replayability, and more harrowing zombie survival stories Breakdown offers a great reason for State of Decay veterans to jump back in.
