Similar to DayZ, State of Decay is an open world title where players must band together to survive the zombie apocalypse. Players will be able to choose a location where they can make their base and over time this can be upgraded with better fortifications and design to repel zombies.
In order to stay alive, the band of one location must raid nearby settlements continuously for supplies. Players can also choose at will of which settlement to join.
Undead Labs commented on their upcoming zombie game saying:
The end is here. Life as you knew it has gone to hell after the mother of all zombie outbreaks. Now you and the few scattered survivors must band together to survive and rebuild in a 3rd-person action game set in a dynamic open world.
The developers have also confirmed that the game will not at all be scripted and all events will happen dynamically. A gameplay footage released (below) looks interesting enough.
The game was announced exclusively last year for the Xbox Live Arcade. Now it seems it will be landing on the PC as well. So far there has been no release date announced.
