State of Decay: Real-Time Open-World Zombie Apocalypse

Two years ago, Undead Labs announced plans to release a real-time, open-world zombie survival title for the Xbox 360. Finally, after two years of quiet development, the studio made an official announcement regarding the title. Dubbed State of Decay, the single-player game will feature multiple characters, allowing players to switch between members of their growing survival community.

The game essentially puts you in a Walking Dead-like scenario where you gather a community of survivors and do whatever it takes to stay alive. According to the developer, the game will operate in real-time and feature an entirely open world, meaning players choose their path of survival as they seem fit. Like reality, players will feel the pain of any poor choices with real time consequences.

No details whether or not a multiplayer element will be worked in, but the title is now being developed on both the Xbox 360 and PC platforms. No release date either, but you can head on over to the Undead Labs blog for more information and screenshots from the game.

    hastenDude this is the second post I've seen today where you are ripping a game/gamers cause you are too cool, implying that gamers need to in some way learn to socialize. Big man. Let's think about this though. You created an account on a computer hardware site to read through the articles and then post comments about how they are uncool. You have 231 posts in 8 days. Take some of your own advice. You buddy, are the most socially inept nerd here.Get a life hater.

    Wow, 231 posts in 8 days. idroid you need a life, sir.

    i knew someone was gonna say something like that:

    *i never said gamers are "uncool" i was talking about nerds.
    *i visit and comment on the forums here on toms with my phone because i like computer and i can help people with their choices.
    *i am sorry if i offended you somehow, its just that i am tired of the nerds spreading BS about some freaking zombie apolypse or some sht
    *i am really here out of boredom because i don't work (i run a bissness...its not actually working:lol:) my wife is asleep and i hate going to sleep early and i am actually pretty damn good building computer and i guess i can a help a few people that ask for help with their builds. again, if i offended you somehow, i am sorry.

    To sum it up, you're an ass. Don't like nerds? Don't waste your time here. You can build a computer?'re real impressive. So can most of the people here. I mean, at this day and age it's about as simple as plugging it in where it fits. Speaking for myself I find your comments to be uneducated, immature, biased, and noncontributing to the article at hand. With the Apple articles I figured you were a troll, now I realize you're just an idiot who has very little in common with the community here.
