One Step Closer: Lifeline Trailer, Date, Price

Thanks to IGN for hosting! Head over to http://www.ign.com/videos/2014/05/26/state-of-decay-lifeline-dlc-trailer for the world debut of the trailer for State of Decay: Lifeline.

That’s right. May 30. $6.99. If all goes well this week, you’ll be playing Lifeline (and the accompanying free Title Update, featuring Rucks in Trucks) by this weekend. 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.

We are now in final certification. (If you’re really into learning How Things Work, check out this link from a year ago where we explain what that means.) If you believe that good wishes and good thoughts count for anything, please send some our way to help ensure we hit our target release date. As always, your support is everything to us.

Keep an eye on our Twitter feed, our Facebook page, or our forum, as we celebrate the launch with contests and games. (And if you’ve got a thriving website or YouTube channel, and you know you can get at least a “first look” review posted before the weekend, email me*!

Last but not least – join us for a live Twitch with Geoffrey, Brant, and introducing QA’s own ChrisP on Tuesday, where they will play Lifeline, answer questions, give away codes, and as always, die horribly because they’re squinting at the chat window instead of paying attention to the zombies. Our hosts, as always, are the Xbox gang (http://www.twitch.tv/xbox) and the party starts at 11 AM PDT/2 PM EDT/7 PM GMT. Hope to see you there!

We hope you enjoy the Lifeline trailer as much as we enjoyed pulling the footage for it. If you haven’t already, be sure to watch all the way to the very end.

BOOM**. See you in the comments.

*No, we didn’t actually do that on purpose. Pure coincidence. Sometimes everything just…fires… on all cylinders, timing-wise, and we have to share the results with you. We’ve been dying to share that clip for WEEKS, seriously.
