New round of State of Decay questions answered from the zombie game’s devs

It has been revealed that players won’t create a specific character to start as “State of Decay” isn’t the game about a single person. It’s a community survival title so no one person is meant to represent the player in-game as the survivor group, as a whole, is meant to do so. As such, players will always begin the Xbox Live Arcade zombie game as a character named Marcus Campbell who, through the first quests of the title, will quickly meet other survivors to form the player’s first group.

Since every survivor in a player’s community is at their disposal, gamers will be able to switch between active control of their members at an time outside of combat or mission deployment.

Fair enough, Would have been good to see like 4 man co-op make it into the game though. I know they are doing Class4 MMO thing, but from what I have seen I think it would benefit from co-op. Plus it would make everything more interesting.

Yeah co-op would be good, there aren't many action games where you can co operate to build things like bases etc, it's usually just blowing the hell out of everything. I liked Dead Island but it was very limited and at heart it was just another war game.

I'm interested, but from what I've seen so far the combat looks like it will be very repetitive. Hope I'm wrong, but I'll be checking it out more as the release date approaches.
