It's more zombie smashing fun. It's not adding too much, new weapons, characters, but It makes it a lot tougher of an experience, even though SOD was a tough non forgiving game to begin with! Overall I would say if you want a new area and story go with lifeline over this but this is a fun little DLC pack too.
If you've played State Of Decay, imagine that game without the over arching plot and you have Breakdown. Set up your camp and scavenge and survive long enough to gather resources to fix up the motor home at which point you move to a fully refreshed map with a higher zombie count that inflicts more damage and fewer vehicles and resources. You get the opportunity to rescue hero characters from the main games story that come with increased stats than the normal survivors you save and them can use them to complete mini achievements within each "stage" to increase your score, basically you play until your community can survive no longer. I consider this a must for anyone who owns the base game and enjoyed it. It's follow up DLC "Lifeline" is also worth a punt. Best survival game I've played.
This DLC for State of Decay doesn't add much except for a few new characters and weapons. But what it does add is basically a sandbox where all you need to do is survive in increasingly difficult situations. Graphically it uses the same assets from the original game, which looks good not great. Luckily it runs pretty well on even mid rang PCs. The developers have also recently dispatched some of the more glaring bugs, like zombies running through walls, so some of the frustrating elements have been fixed at least. Overall I would say pick this up on sale if you can, it doesn't add much new to the game, but it does get you more State of Decay playtime. Here's hoping for more story DLC!
