Open-world zombie game State of Decay will be released PC through Steam's Early Access program later today, developer Undead Labs has announced.

The game will be available for $20, the same price as the Xbox 360 version. Those who pick up the Early Access version of State of Decay will automatically receive the final version, for free and with no need to restart, when the game is officially launched later in the year.

Undead Labs made clear that the version of State of Decay coming to PC today is a "test version" that is not meant to be reviewed. "It will not be perfect. It may still have crashes," the developer said.

In addition, State of Decay for PC will not work with keyboard and mouse, at least not right away. At launch, the Early Access version requires an Xbox 360 controller or a compatible third-party input, though Undead Labs stated it has not done much testing with non-Microsoft controllers yet.

"This process is not for everyone. Casual players, the easily frustrated, and the short of time should NOT get the Early Access version," Undead Labs said. "Hey, I am all three of those things, y'all. Those are not criticisms. It's just that we want everyone to have the experience that best suits their needs. You all deserve the best, so if you're not into giving feedback, just wait a few months and play the final version after we make it great."

State of Decay launched earlier this year on Xbox 360 and has sold more than 500,000 copies. For more on State of Decay, check out GameSpot's review.
