State of Decay arriving on Steam Early Access today

Xbox Live zombie hit State of Decay is scheduled to arrive on PC for the first time today.

The game, which set Xbox Live alight back in June, is due to arrive on Valve’s Steam portal today (Friday September 20th) priced at $20. It will be an Early Access version, however, meaning effectively what will be offered is a work in progress version.

Those willing to throw in with us at Undead Labs and your fellow early adopters will automatically get the final version, completely free, with no need to restart, when we officially launch later this year,” a statement from developer Undead Labs confirmed.

It will not be perfect. It may still have crashes. What it won’t have is a keyboard and mouse interface… not at first. Why not? Over the next however many weeks, we will be putting up versions of the keyboard interface and using your comments and feedback to make it awesome. Right this minute, the Early Access version requires an Xbox 360 controller.

This process is not for everyone. Casual players, the easily frustrated, and the short of time should NOT get the Early Access version. Those are not criticisms. It’s just that we want everyone to have the experience that best suits their needs. You all deserve the best, so if you’re not into giving feedback, just wait a few months and play the final version after we make it great.”
