The team at Undead Labs is keeping busy by acting upon user feedback for its apocalyptic arcade title, State of Decay
. After detailing the upcoming "Lifeline" DLC at the start of March, the development team now has more news to share.
In addition to adding new DLC content, Undead Labs has moved to make changes that will allow players to carry significant amounts of inventory items in vehicles throughout the in-game world. A programmer for State of Decay
describes the new features below:
We have added a trunk interaction to the back of all vehicles. This means you can take your favorite car with you on a supply run and load it up before the long trek home. You have to be careful, however, as vehicles are vulnerable; our plan right now is that a destroyed vehicle takes with it everything that it was carrying. You can still interact with the inventories on vehicles that have been flipped – allowing you to rescue your precious resources before they go kaput. Finally, in lieu of having to ‘unload the groceries’ by making individual trips back and forth between the vehicle and community storage when you reach a base, you can instead drive the vehicle into a parking spot (indicated when you’re driving up) to automatically turn in rucksacks. All other inventory remains in the vehicle
The trunk interaction options will be available in the main game as well as the game's extra content packs, "Breakdown"
Undead Labs has not confirmed when the new features will be applied as part of Title Update 5, as the game patch is "now in testing". We'll let you know when we have more information.
