For those of you craving zombies on the Xbox One, State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition has been announced as a special release for the Xbox One in Spring 2015. This zombie-survival game featured an enormous amount of zombies on screen (especially if you provoked them) on the Xbox 360 version and you already know what is going down… “unofficially”, they will be increasing those numbers to enormous amounts thanks to developer Undead Labs. Confirmed, this version will feature HD 1080p graphics, Addons Breakdown and Lifeline included with the addition of new added content. The “increased on-screen zombies” bit is a speculation as every developer has been increasing the amount of enemies on screen to show off next-gen console power and I see State of Decay playing out the same.
When State of Decay debuted on Xbox Live last June, it broke a number of genre gameplay conventions: characters die permanently, story progression isn’t pre-scripted, and the world continues to change even when players are offline. Fans responded enthusiastically to this "zombie survival fantasy" spin on the genre, ensuring a bright future for the State of Decay franchise.
So what’s next for State of Decay? In Spring 2015, Xbox One owners will have the opportunity to experience the definitive version of State of Decay with the Year-One Survival Edition. Earlier this week, we paid a visit to Undead Labs’ studios to learn more:
The State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition will include the original State of Decay, now running in glorious 1080p, previously released Add-on packs Breakdown and Lifeline, as well as some entirely new content. Undead Labs will reveal more on the new content closer to release, and you’ll read about it here when they do.
