PC State of Decay releases after control changes and Steam integration complete18 Jun 2013
Undead Labs’ open world zombie XBLA title State of Decay has been doing rather well since it launched but what about a PC version?
Undead Labs had recently stated that it was “in progress”, and in a post on the Xbox Wire, Undead Labs founder Jeff Strain revealed that it was the fastest selling original game on Xbox Live Arcade. He also went on to elaborate a bit more on the PC version and how it was progressing:
“We’re currently working on a PC version for release on Steam. Fortunately it’s been in development alongside the Xbox 360 version since Day 1, so we just need to integrate with the Steam platform and add native support for keyboard and mouse control. We’ll also continue to issue Title Updates at a fast pace to refine game balance and fix bugs.”
The development team have been paying close attention to the community feedback and Jeff went on to say that they are adding a sandbox mode:
“For a start, I can tell you we’re working on a sandbox mode designed to be a pure survival simulation. Beyond that, all I can say is we pay very close attention to what fans of the game are asking for, and their needs will largely guide our development priorities, so stay tuned.”
PC gamers have been wanting to get their undead hands on this game since it launched a few weeks ago. Hopefully all the Steam integration and control switching won’t take them too long.
