Though Undead Lab's original intent was to bring State of Decay to PC, there was a lot of hesitancy on the developer's part to announce an official release date. Essentially, its stance was that development on Xbox Live was going to come first.
With State of Decay becoming a smash hit on Xbox Live, selling over 700,000 copies, it seemed like the matter of a PC port was a little more urgent. Via livestream, Undead Lab founder Jeff Strain announced that the developer would be bringing the zombie survival game to PC later this year.
"Will the PC version have enhanced graphics? Higher res? Improved framerate? Yes," stated the director of community Sanya Weathers. "A high end PC can do all those things, so we're modifying the game to support those things. The PC version will not have different content or features, however."
And unfortunately for those eager to get their hands on some modding tools for the game, Undead Labs won't be releasing any. "What the PC version also won't have are modding tools (for time/testing reasons)," said Weathers, "but we have no objection to mods or modders, and we look forward to seeing what our PC players come up with."
"Speaking of the PC version, Jeff confirmed that we are going to be taking part in Steam's Early Access program. That means we will be doing a controller-only PC version in advance of the final release for the purposes of feedback. The final version of the PC version will of course have keyboard/mouse support."
