Undead Labs is planning to release the first State of Decay DLC called ‘Breakdown’ later this month, provided that development goes smoothly.
“Today I’m happy to announce that our first DLC for State of Decay, ‘Breakdown’, has been delivered to Microsoft for pre-certification testing,” wrote Undead Labs on its website last night. “This means the game is content-and-feature complete, and all that remains is to squash any remaining bugs and make final tweaks to tuning and balance.”
“As we’ve said before, we like to be transparent about our plans, but things could change. Our test team could turn up some huge game-screwing design flaw next week. We might make a mistake in the packaging format and fail certification. The government shutdown could close down the internetz. Anything could happen.
“But, assuming no catastrophes, we plan on getting Breakdown into your hands by the end of October.”
State of Decay: Breakdown brings forth a new survival mode that continually increases in difficulty, making the damage received from the undead greater. Players will also start experiencing fatigue and with each increase in difficulty, the zombies become stronger and players get weaker. The mode will also feature an abundance of faster zombies who can quickly catch up to you in your fatigued state.
A price for the content has yet to be announced.
Undead Labs revealed last week that State of Decay had sold over 1 million copies.
