State of Decay's first major DLC will release on Xbox 360 and Steam next Friday, November 29, Undead Labs has announced.

Breakdown enhances the game's focus on survival, and introduces brand new survivors, new weapons and challenges and a new difficulty mode that increases the longer you play.

"Our first expansion comes largely from you and your dreams," said Undead Labs community director Sanya Weathers. "Less story, more survival. Long-term survival. More difficulty. New achievements, survivors, and weapons. We hope you have as much fun with it as we have."

The DLC will cost $6.99 (£4.33) in North America. A UK price has yet to be announced.

The latest title update, which will roll out alongside Breakdown, will include a variety of bug fixes and a new loot distribution system.
