Microsoft may be tinkering with playing Xbox One games on Windows

Microsoft may be experimenting with bringing support for Xbox One games to PC, or so suspect cybersleuths poking around in recent test versions of Windows 10. Microsoft have released Windows 10 editions of all their own Xbone games for several years now but if this turns out to be what some suspect, Windows may in future directly support any and all Xbox One games. Maybe.…

State of Decay 2 wants to take a vote on who should lead us

The first State of Decay game sold 4.5 million units. Did you know that? For sure I would have guessed wrong by three million units. But that's not to say it didn't deserve that attention. Building a functioning society post zombie-apocalypse and getting an incredibly layered series of management tools and interpersonal squad dynamics to work in such an entertaining way is no small accomplishment.…

Steam summer sale: our giant recommendations list

We’ve rounded up some recommendations - both general tips and some newly added…

State Of Decay 2 Announced, Adding Co-op

State of Decay developers Undead Labs today announced a sequel to their community-building zombie apocalypse survival game, coming to Windows 10 in 2017. The big feature for State of Decay 2 [official site] is online co-op, letting up to four players join up to romp around the end of human civilisation. Between this and Dead Rising 4's announcement, it has been a good day for…

State Of Decay’s Remastered Year One Edition Released

I realise it's somewhat passé to compare a game to Dark Souls but look, State of Decay [official site] really is reminding me of Dark Souls. No, no, this is nothing to do with difficulty or death or mystery or structure: it's about revamp-o-rereleases. Like Dark Souls II's Scholar of the First Sin, State of Decay's Year One Survival Edition is the base game and…

Garry’s Mod And State Of Decay In Humble Bundle

Say kid, how do you fancy being a YouTube sensation, a real livestream Liberace? "B-but where would I even start?" you ask, eyes wide with hope. A new Humble Weekly Sale offers almost everything you need to become an Internet megastar, minus the hardware and a dreadful persona. Curated by 'PewDiePie' (he has YouTube's most-subscribed channel, don't you know?) the bundle packs a few games…

Open-Ended Zombies: State Of Decay – Breakdown

I'd been looking forward to State of Decay for a long time when it finally arrived on PC but after shuffling around on my hard drive for a while, it fell as flat as a zombie on an icerink. Hordes of people were quick to tell me that the game had more charms hidden beneath its fetid flesh than I had been willing to acknowledge…

State Of Decay Hits Steam, Er, Sans Keyboard Controls

If guttural howls from those strange, primitive hill people in console land are anything to go by, State of Decay is apparently quite excellent. We at RPS have been eagerly awaiting its arrival on PC while sipping fine scotch and inventing new classical instruments, and now it's finally made the leap. Kinda. The nicely freeform zombie sandbox is playable on our platform of choice right this…

Next Stop: State Of Decay

Instead of complaining about zombies, let's try to be positive about the little rotters. Which game, to your mind, has best used the most common and infectious of undead enemies? Would you opt for the character-driven dread and vulnerability of The Walking Dead? Zomboid's bleak suburban survivalism? Maybe you just like shooting hordes of former friends in the head, in which case you're spoiled for…

State Of Decay PC Releasing Via Steam Early Access

I'm not usually one to wade into sandboxes fully of decaying body parts (what can I say; guess I'm a bit of a germophobe), but State of Decay has me reconsidering that policy. The zombie survival sandbox from the apocalypse technicians at Undead Labs pushes all the right emergent, never-know-what-might-go-wrong buttons - at least, if word from the haggard survivors over in Console Land is…

State Of Decay Still Coming To PC, But Not ‘Soon’

State of Decay is finally out on console coffins, and what do you know? It's apparently pretty good! Naturally, I too want to sink my noxious nub teeth into the permadeath zombie open-world-er, but my PC isn't an Xbox - no matter how badly Microsoft wants it to be. We were, however, promised our very own decaying slice of slate quite some time ago. It's always…

State Of Decay Will Be Undead From June

UndeadLabs have announced that their zombie-apocalypse survival game, cleverly named State Of Decay, will appear in June. It's an open-world survival game that sees the player recruiting other survivors and building bases so as to live in a world where most people are mindless drones bent on devouring whatever wanders into their path. A familiar theme, then. There is one reason to pay a lot…

Deathly Silent: Stealth In State Of Decay

Complaining about the fact that there are too many things with zombies in them is becoming nearly as tiresome as the reviled nightwalkers themselves, so let's get right to the point: State of Decay sounds quite enticing - at least, on paper. A fully reactive open world in which all is permitted - including tonally inconsistent body slams? Why yes, I could go for that.…

State Of State Of Decay: Multi Out, Windows 8 Undecided

Yesterday, Undead Labs re-announced its long-awaited zombie sandbox survivor Class3 as 1) State of Decay and 2) a game that'll be launching on PC as well as Xbox. Good news all around, basically. But these zombies emerged still partially obscured by a thick fog of mystery. Among other things, Microsoft's on publishing duties, and other recent titles to share that distinction on PC have come…

Zombies Ate My Neighborhood: State Of Decay

OK, before overly jerked knees and seismic facepalms leave RPS liable for one of the most puzzling injury outbreaks in medical history, know that State of Decay - while arising from the ashes of a zombie MMO project once called Class3 - doesn't look like a Day Z clone or anything along those lines in the slightest. For better or worse, it appears to be a…
