The lights are on
To lump all zombie games into one category would be a mistake. There are first-person titles (Dead island), team-based survival experiences (Left 4 Dead), and those that give you a limited amount of time to complete missions and take out as many of the undead as possible (Dead Rising). Is there room for yet another shambling corpse-filled game? The team at Undead Labs thinks so.
We previewed State of Decay at PAX East this year and came away impressed with its focus on survival and community-building aspects. Additionally, the focus on a real-time clock that keeps ticking even when you're away sounds like it would make for some intense scenarios. We'll be able to find out for ourselves this week.
State of Decay arrives on Xbox Live Arcade on June 5, 2013, for 1600 Microsoft points ($20). A PC release is also planned, but as of now, it has not been confirmed for the same date.

EXCELLENT! This'll definitely pass the time while I wait for The Last of Us! ^_^
Oh, it's on Wednesday? Nice!
This should be quite good.
I'll wait on this, but it looks interesting.
This looks really cool especially since these types of games always intrigue me but I never buy them on the account of annoying friends who are all cod fans majority of the time, and always trying to make me buy the newest release.
Next week, I get this, and DayZ for my birthday, 2 days later The Last of Us releases (Which I have on full pre-order) and a day after that I graduate from highschool. Talk about zombie summer heaven.
I will wait for the PC version, thank you very much!
bitches,pc version pls- so i can pirate it!!
Can´t wait for the pc version this game will be amazing :)
Yayyy!!! I'm so excited!
oooo tomorrow i cant wait to finish work tomorrow.
Looks awesome hope it delivers everything other zombie titles haven't. Can't wait.
What the hell? I think Microsoft want some games to just fail!!! Where is the promotion for this release date. Nevermind the incredibly bad promotion for the game itself, they are terrible to ther independent contractors........... Good luck Undead labs and STATE OF DECAY!!
Hope it turns out to be good. Love a good zombie game. PlayedDead Rising nearly nonstop when I got it a while back. Nothing like an open world zombie game.
I think I'll give this a looksy, lots of good stuff been coming out on X-Box Live Arcade as of late.
Played the demo and it is pretty badass! Way better than most zombie games that has came out recently.
