State of Decay heading to PC this year

Undead Labs' zombie game hitting PC with enhanced graphics and improved frame rate for capable systems.

Undead Labs' zombie title State of Decay, which has sold more than 500,000 copies through Xbox Live, is coming to the PC later this year. Undead Labs founder Jeff Strain announced the news during a recent live stream.

The PC version of State of Decay will feature enhanced graphics and an improved frame rate for high-end systems, though it won't have any different content or features.

For time and testing reasons, the company explained, the PC version of State of Decay will not have modding tools, though the company has "no objection" to mods or modders.

"We look forward to seeing what our PC players come up with," the developer said.

State of Decay for the PC will be featured in Steam's Early Access program, and the initial release will support controllers only "for the purposes of feedback." The final version will "of course" have keyboard/mouse support, the developer said.

This game was "ok" but it had some annoying tendencies and a LOT more potential.

Can't wait to get this for PC. It kind of stinks that they aren't going to develop a multi-player aspect to this game.

Played the demo and decided to wait for the PC version even if its not better on PC the mod community will clean it up then ill get it.

I played the demo for this game on the XBox 360 and it felt too awkward and clunky for me to endure.  It also lagged quite badly.  It's certainly not what I'd consider a quality product and not something I'd buy.  It may have other merits though and will no doubt run better on the PC.

I have the feeling that the people who demand MP and co-op don't quite understand what this game is about.

Watched a long gameplay demo of this... Like the idea but the melee combat seemed VERY simplistic, repetitive and above all dull. Literally, "press X to swing" in it's most basic mashy sense. Although the environmental contextual kills were more like it...

If the social interactions are as well done and relevant as some people have suggested, I reckon I can look past overly simplistic combat, since the game isn't ABOUT combat.

if only Sony would allow some indie love on the PS3. For real. Thats the main thing Live has over PSN. They got the banging indie games like Meat Boy.

Honestly, people are never fucking happy, people bitch about games focusing to much on Mp and coop, they say there;s never a great single player experience in games anymore then when finally one arrives they do nothing but bitch there's no coop or MP lmao, I wish people would fucking make their mind up lol This is directed at some people in this article.

Not surprised to be honest. it's a good game by far the best zombie survival game there is that I know of, I hope the PC crowed enjoy the game as I did. :D

Good to hear they're focusing on performance. Graphics are rarely an issue for me, hell, even bugs, glitches, and other issues are things I can ignore, but an awful framerate and engine issues can make enjoying a game really, really hard. I would rather State of Decay have even worse visuals on the 360 if it meant the engine's performance would go up.

I bought this game on xbox and loved it. 


I WAS going to buy this on game again for  pc, HOWEVER after they announced they were giving up on adding in Multiplayer to this game I'm not buying it again. 


Guess we'll have to wait for the next game they make to get MP in it.

Fact: State of Decay spelled backwards is "Yelling at Fish"

 "We look forward to seeing what our PC players come up with," 

In other words...a sloppy port over so leave it to the talented modders.

@Shanks_D_Chop I don't know if the game is going to be what you think it is.  All I can say is it had me addicted for about 4 days straight.

@frylock1987 They even have a indie section under ps3 games in psn. And sony has more love for indie developers than microsoft, as sony treats all developers as publishers, microsoft on the other hand wants only publishers.
Basically what you've shown is xbox fanboysm blindness.

@rishimishra1234 Wrong place and are you kidding me every fucking GTA game has come out for PC 5 will be no different stop this im sick of seeing it, its coming to PC for fucks sake.

@jayjay444Noone says if there is MP or CO-Op means bad game or anything.I said if they add Co-Op the game will be Perfect. What makes great single player games Perfect ? Adding Co-Op not Multiplayer ! Playing Skyrim with your friend ? Co-Op MGS ? God of War ? Ninja Gaiden ? No game can beat these.

@CptJohnnyRico

@Sam_021  So true, i was hoping for it in the PC version :( still a decent sp game but coop would make it truly great
