State of Decay is designed to let zombie fans answer the ultimate question: What would you do in the face of the zombie apocalypse?
The end is here. Human civilization has been annihilated. The few, scattered survivors must band together, rebuilding civilization in a third- person action game packed with sweet guns, fast cars, hand-to-hand combat, and copious amounts of zombie gore. Players choose where to make their stand, designing and fortifying their settlements, performing daring raids for valuable stores of food and ammunition, and rescuing other playable survivors. The open world develops in real-time, shaped by player actions, with content determined by their choices and the ever-increasing zombie threat.
Undead Labs has announced State of Decay, an open world zombie game that develops in real-time, shaped by your actions. According to the games official site, State of Decay is a third-person action game set in the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse.
You choose where to make your stand, designing and fortifying your home base, performing daring raids for food and ammunition, and rescuing other playable survivors with unique talents, Undead Labs explains. The open, sandbox world develops in real-time, shaped by your actions, dynamically generating content based on your choices and the ever-increasing zombie threat.
State of Decay was originally announced as Class3 back in 2011, described at the time as an "open world zombie-survival game" where choice is a major part of the gameplay. According to a blog post from Undead Labs founder Jeff Strain, the team began work on the game in summer 2010. Two years have passed. It sometimes feels like forever, but the truth is thats not a large amount of time in game development years, Strain wrote. For those of you whove stuck with us from the beginning -- when those two years seemed like forever -- today is for you.
Despite beginning development as an Xbox Live exclusive, State of Decay is now in development for both Xbox Live and PC. A release date has not yet been announced.
