IGN spends 4 Hours in State of Decay’s Open-World Zombie Nightmare

At first look, it might seem like State of Decay is just another action game set in a zombie-infested town. But after fours hours of gameplay, IGN says that Undead Labs has created something new and unique. (PC, State of Decay, Xbox 360)

I am glad more and more games like this are coming out, but they should all pay homage to DayZ.

Wasn't this game in development way before DayZ , so if the homage paying should be the other way around.

It looks like Arma 2: Operation arrowhead actually was the one who started it, which is what the DayZ mode was created off which started development some time in 2011.

State of Decay was also in the beginning stages of development in February 2011.

This is what I found so I guess technically I was wrong. My bad.

We should all pay homage to Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead

This game needs online co-op, because it seems the game is built around co-operative play.

Actually, the game is based around squad and supply management and survival. However, "State of Decay" was intended to be a prototype for a multiplayer follow up code named "Class 3", but, recently the developers have expressed intentions to add co-op to "State of Decay" at a later date...

So looking forward to this game.

Also, the second video when that guy with the blonde hair pulls a face when walking past the camera, I just shook my head. Then saw him trip up a bit and just laughed >.<

Sounds great and I love that it's a single player game.

They plan on adding co-op in the future, from what I hear.

I remember when this was still called Class 3 and everyone on an internet board I frequented thought it was nothing but a pipe dream.

My body is more than ready, I don't think I can say the same for my poor wallet.

This is my 2nd most anticipated for the current gen consoles. Beyond this and The Last of Us I don't see too much more investment from me for current gen.

As for the game. It looks like a brilliant take on zombie GTA but with a great strategy mechanic.
