State of Decay 2 Ultimate Edition

Release date: May 18th
How Will You Survive?

The dead have risen and civilization has fallen. Not even the military could stop the zombies, and now it's up to you to gather survivors and build a community in a post-apocalyptic world – a world where every decision matters, and where you define what it means to survive.

State of Decay 2 is the ultimate zombie survival game in an open world where you and up to three friends build a community of survivors. It’s up to you to establish a base, develop your characters’ abilities, and manage resources to survive as a group in a world where choices matter and every decision has lasting consequences.

Every player’s experience is unique - as you play, the open world responds to your decisions, developing in real time and dynamically offering new opportunities for you to demonstrate your own personal survival priorities. These decisions also result in real consequences that affect your community. Send your best scavenger across the map to gather medicine for a sick friend... but know that they might not make it home. Help your neighbors, and you might make new allies... or you could decide that you need their food supply more than they do. In the end, how you survive might surprise you.

Lily's Epic Quest for Lost Gems

Release date: May 16th
Embark on an epic puzzle quest full of adventure and exploration. You play as Lily, a young archeologist who enters in her grandfather’s footsteps in a quest for the ultimate treasure, fame and glory.

This puzzle adventure uses the match 3 puzzle mechanics, known from games like Candy Crush Saga or Bejeweled Blitz. By making combination of 3 or more blocks, Lily will be able to clear a path through different ground layers, in a search for rare Gems & Artifacts. Our hero needs to explore 10 magic worlds and dig towards the center of the earth, to find all 250 collectables.

“Lily’s Epic Quest for Lost Gems” is an innovative enhancement to the match 3 genre. Most match 3 games stick to a fixed field of elements and, each time a combination of 3 or more is created, they are removed and new elements are added to the field. Lily’s Epic Quest has a process based on the classic 3-match principles with a free roaming playfield, where the player can decide where to dig or how to solve the puzzles.

The player is limited to the view of the camera and needs to move the Hero around to view more of the playfield. Any combination of 3 or more will remove the blocks clearing the field and giving to the Hero more space to run around.

The game contains more than 250 Gems & Artifacts, some common and others very rare. It is up to the player to collect them all. Cracking all 150 puzzles will not be enough. New tools will open more possibilities and provide access to the new parts of the world.
