State of Decay Out on XBLA in June
State of Decay will be released on XBLA in June.
Yes, it’s another zombie game but State of Decay concentrates more on survival, stealth, evasion, and base-building in an open-world environment. You’ll work with a bunch of AI survivors to erect structures that will help you survive in a world overrun by the undead. To build these structures, however, requires exploring the world, scavenging raw material. Should you meet a zombie up close, you’ll still be able to get rid of them using a range of sturdy melee weapons.
It’s being developed by Undead Labs, founded by Jeff Strain. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Strain was the lead programmer on World of Warcraft. The game has partnered with Microsoft Studios, so don’t expect to see it on PS3 anytime soon. A PC version is expected sometime down the road, however.
