Video: 10 State of Decay 2 tips to stay alive

If the zombies don’t get you in State of Decay 2, then the boastful barista will. Sure, he brews a mean cup of joe, but his self-confidence is beginning to grate and the community’s morale is sinking. This might be the first survival game to be derailed by a braggart with coffee breath. As such it can feel like the world is conspiring against you,…

Feature: Two go mad in the country

Video: Watch us kill zombies (and a few survivors) in State of Decay 2 co-op

Zombie survival adventure State of Decay 2 lurches on to PC next Tuesday - though it’s out today for those who ordered the Ultimate edition - and Brendan kindly put aside his endless shopping trips to help me test co-op mode. Opt for a multiplayer session and you appear as visiting survivors in the host’s game, in this case, Brendan’s. You can help said host…

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.…

Feature: The best bargains

Steam summer sale: our giant recommendations list

The Steam summer sale is in full blaze. For a while it even blazed so hot that the servers went on fire and all the price stickers peeled off the games. Either that or the store just got swamped with cheapskates looking for the best bargains. Cheapskates like you! Well, don’t worry. 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…

Reanimated: State Of Decay Revamped For Rerelease

When our Adam asked "Have You Played... State of Decay?" he noted that the open-world zombie survive 'em up had become a lot better in the year since its release, thanks largely to its 'Breakdown' DLC. What we here at RPS have apparently neglected to mention so far is that developers Undead Labs are revamping State of Decay for a prettied-up rerelease with its DLC…

Have You Played… State Of Decay?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. State of Decay didn't impress me when I played it last September. Originally released on the 360, Undead Labs' debut is an open world survival game with a structure remarkably close to my ideal zombie game. It's about scavenging, gathering survivors, barricading, running…

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…

Feature: Open world, open wounds

Impressions: State Of Decay

State of Decay was the only reason I regretted jettisoning my Xbox 360. When it came out, I read glowing reviews and believed it might be the open world survival game that so many were waiting for. Now it’s on PC, albeit without proper mouse and keyboard support. I’ve only played for around six hours, but seeing the game riding high on Steam’s best-seller’s list…

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…
