State of Decay Title Update for Xbox 360, PC status

 

By Posted 19 Jun 2013, 05:35

It looks like there is a large amount of Xbox 360 owners who are currently loving the open world zombie game State of Decay. So much, that Microsoft has some good news to announce, with State of Decay officially becoming the fastest selling ‘original’ game in the history of Xbox Live Arcade.

As a result, Microsoft has announced that State of Decay has now passed the half a million downloads milestone, despite only going on sale since June 5 – very impressive for a supposed ‘small’ indie game. We had a feeling that State of Decay would become something special upon release, and now it looks like developers UndeadLabs are destined for bigger and better things with regards to future products.

If you picked up State of Decay on Xbox 360 and are still loving it, we have some good news for you. Jeff Strain from UndeadLabs has revealed that the first major Title Update will be going live for the game over this weekend. Furthermore, he has also revealed that the team are working on a sandbox mode for the game, which has been touted as a pure survival simulation experience, which will be coming to the game in due course.

While it’s obviously disappointing that there is no PC release yet, UndeadLabs has said that the game is nearly ready for a release, with just Steam integration one of the few remaining tasks left to complete, as well as keyboard and mouse support. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring you a solid PC release date soon.

What are your impressions of State of Decay so far, two weeks after release? Do you think it is fully worth the 1600 Microsoft Points asking price?

    Outstanding game. It is well worth the 1600 ms points. I have had to restart a few times because I get too attached to a character, and I can’t cope when they die, it’s just something I’ll have to learn to deal with. But I would like the game to stop when I quit, it does make it interesting, but at the same time, I feel as though I miss out on too much as I don’t get a lot of chances to play, and when I do log on, so much has happened that I had no control over, even with that, It is the best game I’ve played all year.

    Excellent game–well worth every penny, and the fact that it’ll be available on Steam (AND be able to use a mouse and keyboard) makes it all the more drool worthy. What’s even better is the next version of this game is being looked at, with co-op play and plenty of improvements.
