State of decay new info

I like how the infestation spread will work . I just i hope don't be so fast when you are not playing the game.





[quote]Zombie games have been in constant supply during this console generation, but many of them focus on action. With the upcoming State of Decay for Xbox Live Arcade, developer Undead Labs is instead forcing the player to focus more on survival and building a community of survivors.


In the game's open world, several areas can be set up as bases for your community. These can eventually be upgraded and modified with a variety of upgrades, including  weapon repair stations, med stations with cots for the injured, and gardens to grow your own food. Vehicle repair stations will be critical, as there is a finite number of cars in the game world that can become permanently totalled.


Dynamic missions will pop up from time to time, and you'll have to take out infestations if you don't want them to spread to other areas. The game utilizes real world time, so the infection will definitely spread if you go several days without playing.


Instead of just running in and taking out hordes of zombies with your fists and weapons, you can utilize stealth and distractions. Let's say you need to get in a hardware store to get nails for your base, but a horde of zombies is hanging out near the front. You can leave a police car's siren on or throw some firecrackers to lure them towards the noise, and then sneak by.


 Many missions will be dynamic, but there is a narrative thread tying everything together and story characters that can't die. It's big in scope for a downloadable title, featuring a game world as big as Grand Theft Auto III. No release date is set right now, but Undead Labs seems confident that it will release before or during this year's Summer of Arcade.[/quote]

I had a chance to try the demo this weekend. It was highly entertaining. Ya I know, "another Zombie game why should I care?". Utilizing stealth and the environment makes it pretty fun, and you don't have to worry about "hordes" at least in my chance at playing it.

I thought I read a while back that this was a PS3 exclusive, I am so glad it will be available on Xbox. I always love a good zombie game, definitely going to pick this up.

Zambies!!

I think it sounds good, but I don't know how well it will work. I mean, if I'm just running from barrier to barrier pushing they "upgrade" button that will be no fun.

state of decay is 360 exclusive iirc but it's an arcade game.

honestly state of decay is the only 360 exclusive i'm looking forward to and will probably be my last 360 purchase.

Bored of zombies, don't see the fascination with them.

We need something like DayZ but this sounds good still.

I hope it's out before Summer of Arcade but that won't happen, they will push it like they did Deadlight.

This was the only confirmed XBLA game I planned on getting this year so far.  I really hope with the next-gen consoles they put a bigger focus on Digital Releases.  Like to the point where we would see commercials for the releases during regular TV programs.  

I'd love to have a release calendar for Arcade titles months ahead of time like I do with regular Retail releases.

The devs have stated that the game is in the pre-certification phase or something like that. It should come out soon though MS could delay it to release at an ideal time.

So is this single player or an MMO?
