It sounds as if State of Decay: Lifeline, the game’s second expansion since its release last June, will be substantially beefier in its content. A new story, characters, and monsters, as well as an expansive new city to cleanse of said monsters will help make this a must-buy for fans of the game. What’s more than that is the news that the DLC will cost a paltry $6.99 and release a full month earlier than expected. You better dust off your 12-guage, because Lifeline arrives on May 30.
According to a post on the developer’s blog, this is all because of an extremely beneficial relationship with the folks at Microsoft.
“If all goes well, this may be the first time in gaming history that a game was released BEFORE the official public target. It’s a long story, best told over copious quantities of frosty beverages, but the short version is that both the Undead Labs team and the crew at Microsoft has been burning the midnight oil to make this happen before State of Decay celebrates its first birthday.”
I’m certainly not complaining. Check out its latest trailer below.
