Undead Labs Nearly Finished With State of Decay
Undead Labs is taking a different approach to the zombie genre with State of Decay. You know that inevitable conversation you and your buds have about the best way to survive a zombie apocalypse? Next time make sure someone is taking the minutes. In State of Decay you’ll focus on creating a community and keeping it safe after the undead scourge besets presumably upon the world.
State of Decay gives you an open world full of different types of locales. Plan your community, build defenses, and stage daring raids to gather supplies. You’ll also have the opportunity to save skilled NPC characters during randomly generated events, and use their specific skills to better your community.
The third person combat mechanics seem to be tight and rather fluid. aiming doesn’t look very taxing, melee weapons have weight, and evasion is intuitive. I always enjoy distracting enemies and slipping past them rather than directly engaging, and State of Decay looks like it’ll offer several diversionary tactics as well.
The world State of Decay takes place in is ever evolving. Raiding the same areas too often will completely deplete resources, and making to much noise while building that brand new wall may just produce the exact opposite effect you were hoping. You’ll encounter other groups that may want to trade with you, or ask for your help in taking the offensive against a nearby zombie horde.
Look for more updates on State of Decay right here on it’s way to the Xbox Live Arcade, Summer of Arcade sale.
