will be coming this April. The remastered zombie apocalypse will include the base game and both the Breakdown
DLCs.State of Decay
on the Xbox One will receive the full benefit of the move to the stronger hardware. A bump up to 1080p will add new textures, increased draw distances, and a deeper level of detail. Meanwhile characters, both human and zombie, are receiving new animations for more realistic fluid-looking movements. On top of that, there will be new vehicles, weapons, and an improved interface to make dealing with inventories a little easier. Also, instead of resorting to kicking when your melee weapon breaks, players will now be equipped with a knife to act as your last resort.
The game is also introducing a new mission type to the fray. Mysterious supply crates will start dropping into remote areas of the map, which are filled with some of the rarest and most powerful equipment in the game. The only problem is that these drops attract hordes of zombies, and so you will have to wipe them out before you can get to what they contain.
