The game comes in a standard edition, priced at $29.99, and an Ultimate edition at $49.99. The Ultimate edition allows players to access the game early on May 18 and includes the original game, State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition, on Xbox One and State of Decay 2 DLC packs Independence and Daybreak, which have TBD release dates.

You Are The Monster In This Reverse Horror Game

Most horror games are about limited the player with scarce resources or having them evade a ferocious villain stalking them. In Carrion, an upcoming horror game from Phobia Game Studio, the roles are reversed. This time, you're a fearsome, bloody, monster blob lurking around and killing its prey.

You make your way through an industrial complex going head-to-head with various heavily armed humans, all hoping to end the terror you cause. Unfortunate for them, you have a range of otherworldly abilities at your disposal to send them to early graves. You can view a short trailer below.

Rare Details Ship Customization On The High Seas

With Sea of Thieves not far off on the horizon, Rare has released a video detailing how ship customization works.

Rare hasn't been coy about the ways in which pirate customization works, explaining that pretty much every aspect of your buccaneer is up for changing. Ship customization, however, has been pretty quiet beyond possible hints in the beta. The newest developer diary explains that you can basically build the ship from the sails to the hull.

Anthropomorphic Animals Headline A New XCOM-Style Tactics Game From Creators Of Hitman, Payday

Anthropomorphic Animals Headline A New XCOM-Style Tactics Game From Creators Of Hitman, Payday

It's not every day you see a game starring an angry boar and anthropomorphic duck with an attitude problem, but that's what Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden is selling. 

Funcom and The Bearded Ladies (a collaboration between former Hitman and Payday developers) have teamed up to deliver this off-kilter tactical adventure featuring XCOM style gameplay, exploration, and a story that takes place after the fall of mankind. With various groups of mutants vying for control given the vacuum created by the eradication of humankind, your band of misfit mascots must navigate the dangerous terrain via a real-time stealth system and try to uncover the location of Eden. The stealth system allows you to avoid detection altogether to slip past formidable foes if you'd rather save your ammo for a later fight. 

The "abandoned cities, crumbling highways, and overgrown countryside" offer a lot of terrains to explore. In between missions, you can return to the Ark, a retrofuturistic hub where you can recruit new team members and upgrade your weaponry. You can get a taste of the vibe The Bearded Ladies are going for with the debut cinematic trailer:
