State of Decay Announced

Undead Labs has officially announced their upcoming PC and Xbox 360 zombie game State of Decay.  According to their website, State of Decay is to be an open-world sandbox centered around a zombie apocalypse.

The gameplay is said to be unique from other well known zombie games like Left 4 Dead 2. Instead of reaching pre-set safe houses or focusing entirely on developing combat skills against zed-heads, State of Decay is to have a much more detailed survival aspect.  Players will be able to set up initial safe-houses, explore and rescue other people to bring back to your safe house, then expand the safe house into well defended communities. The level of choices and freedom for each player"s experience is still not fully known, but we do know it should be expansive given that aspects such as scouting parties for supply runs and the amount of noise/activities within an area or community notifying zombie hordes will be incorporated in gameplay.

The zombies themselves seem to be a mix of slow-walking George A. Romaro living dead with 28 Days Later (or Return of the Living Dead should you want quirky 80's) running zombies. Overall, this looks to be a very interesting installment in the zombie gaming world.
