Developer Undead Labs has detailed its zombie horror State of Decay’s latest expansion, Lifeline.
In the new Lifeline DLC, players get to become a member of the military’s outbreak response team ‘Greyhound One.’
Undead Labs stated that,
“On the State of Decay team, we have a different perspective (some of us firsthand) — the military is made up of many good men and women who stand on the line that divides safety and civilization from chaos and war.”
“Few people have a greater opportunity to make life-altering choices than soldiers. They’ve played that role as side characters in the original State of Decay…but now we are adding a new story, in which you take on that responsibility yourself.”
The team then added,
“One of your first imperatives is to secure the Landing Zone, where you can receive supply drops and extract civilians. This location becomes your base, which you must defend at all costs against the zombie horde.
“Since this is a military story, we have the perfect opportunity to expand on the concept of defending that base. The people you are here to rescue are extremely important — and extremely tasty. If you let zombies overrun your gates, these helpless civilians will be among the first to feed the horde. Lose too many, and your mission is over.
“You have 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.”
