I discovered State of Decay because of the recommendation of a friend, even though I thought I would not like the game very much, I decided to buy it on the last promotion of the year and I decided to test it, and it was love at first sight.
The edition I bought was: State of Decay: Year-one Survival Edition, or simply State of Decay: YOSE. In this version, in addition to the base game we have two expansions: Lifeline and Breakdown, with this second expansion will be discussed in this tutorial.
My goal here will be to explain as succinctly as possible how to unlock all the characters in the game State of Decay: Breakdown through cheating, thus avoiding having to do all the challenges proposed by the game.
- This tutorial was made in version 220.127.116.11 of the game, if you are reading this tutorial at a later date, the modification that I am going to present may not work, so stay tuned!
- This tutorial was made for the State of Decay: YOSE, if you are not using this version, the tutorial does not apply to you.
The first step is to close the game if it is open.
Then, we go to download the MOD: "Unloack all characters Braekdown Yose" (yes, there are two spelling errors in the title of this MOD). I recommend you download directly from the NexusMods site to get the most up-to-date version for it to open this link and click the Manual Download button, as you can see in the image below.
This particular download should not require any registration or anything. If you have any problems downloading this file, I left two alternative links ready for download, with the version that was available the day I took the tutorial, and they are available on Mega or MediaFire.
Regardless of which method you choose, you may have downloaded a file called Unlock Characters for State OF Decay Breakdown YOSE-305-1.zip. With the aid of a program that extracts files, such as WinRAR or 7-Zip, open this file as shown in the image below.
Click the Game folder (Arrow 1), and then click in the Extract button (Arrow 2). A new screen should open as shown in the following image.
On the new screen, click the button with the three dots, as shown in the image above. In it you should select the folder in which you installed the game, by default this folder is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\State of Decay YOSE\
After that, click the OK button. Theoretically it should not show anything else, however, if you use other modifications in the game, it can say that the files should be replaced, which you should agree (if necessary take a backup before).
Note that this modification works with both new games and games that you have already started. Now just open the game and walk or wait with your characters for about ten seconds and voila!
Once the heroes are unlocked, this will be permanently saved in your game, as well as unlock all their achievements. You can see on the screen below how you will create a new game.
Note that while the mod is active, many quests will be started to recruit these characters, which theoretically makes the game much easier.
If you wish, after unlocking the characters, you can delete this modification so that the game returns as normal for these quests, so just delete the expertise.win.bmd and expertise.xml files, which are in the installation folder of the (previously informed) by opening the following subfolders: libs\class3.1\rts\.
That's all folks! I hope you have taken advantage of this tutorial available on our page. If you liked it, remember to share it with your friends!
