Undead Labs has just announced new DLC for their hit title State of Decay via their blog. Titled Lifeline, it will be the second expansion pack for the game after Breakdown and seems like it will offer gamers quite a bit more. While the $7 Breakdown DLC offered new weapons and characters and a remixed version of the valley, the big news this time is that there's going to be an entirely new map.

State of Decay is one of the best zombie games out there, a fantastic sandbox game that plays a little bit like if Grand Theft Auto were set in a zombie apocalypse. Characters live or die by your actions and you'll spend much time scavenging for supplies and trying to find new survivors. When you start to have a little community you have to deal with all of their issues- depression, fighting, and use your supplies to properly defend your structure. It's a bit sloppy and glitchy at points but the overall experience is so compelling that you won't be able to stop playing, as many Xbox 360 gamers found out when it was released for the console last year. Despite the $20 price tag (still considered a lot for a downloadable game) the game became an incredible success, selling 250,000 copies in its first 48 hours of release and going on to sell over a million copies later in the year. 

There's no real details behind the State of Decay: Lifeline DLC just yet besides this image and the news of a new map, although we have been promised that it will hit PC and Xbox 360 at the same time. 

Right now they're doing a PC playtest but there's no release date just yet. State of Decay: Lifeline sounds like it may be the DLC that people disappointed by Breakdown were waiting for, though. Keep an eye on Undead Lab's blog for design articles about the upcoming DLC.
