Gaming Update: 'State of Decay,' 'Dark Souls 2' and 'Far Cry 3'

Watch trailers for "State of Decay" and "Dark Souls 2," and get the latest info on upcoming DLC for "Far Cry 3."

Trailers for State of Decay and Dark Souls, and a forthcoming DLC for Far Cry have popped up online recently.

State of Decay Coming in June

Undead Labs has unveiled a new gameplay trailer (above) for State of Decay. The single-player zombie game centers around store clerk Marcus and his attempt to survive with other humans in a world overrun by the undead. Each character that Marcus links with has a set of abilities that will help increase the likelihood of his survival. Marcus embarks on various missions, including building a home base, hunting for supplies and, well, eradicating the brain-eating walkers. The Xbox Live Arcade version will be released in June, and a PC version is reportedly in the works.

New Dark Souls 2 Gameplay Trailer

A new gameplay trailer for Dark Souls 2 has popped up. The new clip introduces new locations, smarter enemies and improved graphics. "The enemies having different types of reaction and different types of thought process, it will allow the player to strategize and figure out for himself the best way of conquering each of the venues in the game," said game director Yui Tanimura, who also admitted that the PC-version of the first game was lackluster.

Watch the trailer below. If you want a deeper look, see the 12-minute demo IGN posted on their site.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon DLC Released

A full trailer for Far Cry 3 DLC "Blood Dragon" has been released. The content is a standalone, meaning you won't have to purchase the entire game to enjoy it; and thus far, everything suggests that this 80s tribute will be worthwhile. It promises to be heavy on callbacks, but it should also hold the interest of the younger crowd. The plot revolves around Sergeant Rex Power Colt and his mission to collect intel on a distant island, scope out a new bioweapon and fight off cyborgs.

The DLC will be released on May 1 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
