Undead Labs has revealed a somewhat nebulous — but still very welcome — June release window for State of Decay: Lifeline. The game’s second expansion, after Breakdown, which released this past December, takes the military’s perspective as they scramble to form a defense against the undead hordes.
According to the developer, Lifeline will give players the ability to defend and fortify a substantial military operation, using “minefields and defenses to build and upgrade. Off-map artillery to call in. Well-trained soldiers who will guard weak points and respond to zombie threats. A stock of military-grade weaponry to use from several commanding positions. But in the end, when the zeds get into the heart of your base, it’s down to fighting tooth versus blade.”
In related news, our very own T. Blake Braddy recently had a chance to sit down with Jesper Kyd, composer on State of Decay, about his work on the game, as well as the new SyFy series, Metal Hurlant Chronicles. You can check that out here.
