State of Decay – Sandbox Mode Detailed


Developer Undead Labs has detailed the ew Sandbox Mode DLC, which will test players’ skills to survive the zombie apocalypse for as long as possible.

The new Sandbox Mode will have players continually scavenge until all supplies have been gathered or used up as the items will not respawn. Once all resources are depleted, they will have to move to another zombie-filled location.

The developer said,

“Survival means making sacrifices. Will you bring your best friend, or will the auto mechanic need his seat? Will you load your pack with ammunition, or with medicine?”

“You can’t be sure what you’ll find in the new valley, and your entire community stash won’t fit in the RV. In the end, the question of what you’ll bring might matter less than whether you can reach the RV at all. It’s like the zombies know you’re leaving — as the RV’s engine revs to life, they step up their attacks, and turn your own backyard into hostile territory. If you do get out, it will be by the skin of your teeth.”

“But hard choices have their rewards, too. In a later article, we’ll discuss the upside of playing the long game…the Achievements, the unlockables, and the struggle for Leaderboard dominance.”

Undead Labs finished by saying that,

“We want to create a setting where players can answer that question, not just until the story is exhausted, but indefinitely.”

The new DLC is scheduled for release at the end of the year for PC.
