Those who pre-order the State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition will net a bonus, according to Undead Labs.


Select retailers in the US will offer the following knives as in-game pre-order bonus content:

  • GameStop –  The Avalonian :  A true work of art, taken off the body of a fantasy enthusiast whose excitement at having real zombies to stab with his enchanted dagger was tragically short-lived.
  • Amazon – The Android: A next-generation box cutter infused with the best that modern technology has to offer. Ergonomic grip, perfectly-angled blade, and an edge that never wears out.
  • Best Buy –  The Australian: Now that’s a knife! Intimidate crocodiles and street punks alike with this replica knife, straight from the wilds of Hollywood.

For those outside the US, check with your local retailer for information on pre-order bonuses.

There’s also a set of incentives for folks who purchased the original State of Decay on either Xbox 360 or PC.

Those who own the original title will receive 33% off the Year-One Survival Edition through the Xbox Store or Steam. They will also net access to an exclusive new character named Gurubani Kaur. She packs two unique swords and a special, permanently-suppressed rifle.

State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition contains all first-year content completely remastered in 1080p with improved lighting, textures, shadows, animations and combat mechanics.

It’s out on April 28 for $29.99/₤19.99/€29.99 in North America and May worldwide.
