So you want a true sandbox mode for State of Decay? Undead Labs, developer of the game, is hard at work on a new State of Decay DLC titled “Sandbox Mode.” While no release date has been announced, we’re hoping they’re going to be releasing with the PC version – which has been confirmed to release by the end of 2013. Check out just a little bit of what Undead Labs had to say about the new DLC below. And don’t be afraid to comment below and check out our Facebook Fanpage, YouTube Channel, and drop by Undead Labs to say hello!
From Geoffrey, Designer at Undead Labs:
You’ve survived for as long as you can in the valley. You’ve turned over every piece of furniture, in every house, looking for the last scraps of food. You’re pretty sure that the next zombie attack will use your last bullet…and then you’ll have no way out.
Except one — there is a broken-down RV at the edge of town. If you can get it running, you can pack up with a few of your closest friends and search for a new place to survive.
Fixing up an RV isn’t an easy task. You’ll need to scavenge for fuel and materials. You’ll need tools, and a decent workshop. You may run into setbacks, and have to risk your life to resolve them. And it will take time — time during which the zombie hordes are growing.
There won’t be room for everyone (we’re still working out the exact numbers). You’ll have to leave a lot behind, including some close friends. But at least you’ll have hope. That’s more than can be said for those who remain in the valley.
Excited for the new State of Decay Patch 3.0? I sure am! If you aren’t, it’s likely you haven’t heard about it yet. Let’s change that. The ability to allow community NPC’s to follow you into the zombiefied world is a huge gameplay feature that will be added to via Patch 3.0. The full feature list is below.
Undead Labs has revealed that State of Decay will be coming to the PC before the end of the year. Therefore, PC gamers will finally be able to get their hands on State of Decay and experience the brilliantly zombified world.
Who’s looking forward to getting their hands on State of Decay? And what MODS would you like to see?
Undead Labs’ State of Decay has gone beyond expectation, smashing sales records within its first 2 days. We previously reported that the game’s leaderboards had swelled up over the 100k mark, meaning the game had sold exceptionally well. However, there’s even better news! In 2 days, State of Decay has gone to sell more than a quarter of a million copies – going toe-to-toe with the likes of juggernaut Minecraft.
We have sold more than a quarter million copies since we released the game two days ago. State of Decay has smashed all kinds of records. The only game that ever sold more on XBLA this fast was Minecraft…an already hugely popular game
All we have to say, is congratulations Undead Labs!
You must first have three things in order to repair vehicles and cars in the game: A mechanic, a basic workshop (or better yet, a warehouse to repair the engine), and the car must be parked in the proper spot as indicated.
Once you meet these requirements, time will pass. Allow for 14 hours in real life time to pass for vehicles to repair.
For weapons, supply lockers and a workshop can be used. Again, it will take time for them to repair.
Healing injured survivors requires a doctor and a medical facility.
Upgrading your facilities can speed up the process of repairing and healing.

It appears it could be time to celebrate everywhere, especially for those exhausted guys and gals over at Undead Labs. Castle Crashers, another great Xbox Live Arcade title, smashed sales records in the first few days as the developer paid close attention to its leaderboards. In a matter of a few days, Castle Crashers leaderboards shot up over 100,000 users and went onto being a smash hit. It’s only been 1 day since the release of State of Decay and we are already seeing leaderboards up and over 100,000 players. This could be an indication that the game is selling extremely well.
Now that Castle Crashers has been out for a few days now, have you heard about the game’s sales?
Tom: We don’t have official numbers, hopefully we’ll be getting them soon. As far as we know we are record breaking, because we aren’t sure of anyone else selling as many copies. But we have to wait for official confirmation from Microsoft.
Dan: Though, we do have leaderboard totals to go off of and the last time we check, it was at about 103,000 players.
Scrolling through all of the great posts out on the Undead LabsForums, I came across the IGN review. So I clicked into the review and said to myself, “Hold onto your butts.” While this isn’t Jurassic Park, the situation is just as tense. This game has been favored for so long by salivating, zombie-slaying gamers like myself waiting for the release date was driving us all…insane! It was our dream: an open world game with complex RPG elements, resource management, base building, and survivor interaction…the list is endless!
And now…now it is here. June 5th being the official release date for State of Decay on Xbox Live Marketplace and what do we have? Just read this quote from IGN’s review:
Decay belongs in the pantheon of great modern zombie games alongside Valve’s Left 4 Dead series and Telltale’s Walking Dead episodes.
That sums it up. IGN continues to give praise to a game developed by a 22 man and woman team – who have worked their asses off on creating a zombie-infested world that is believable. I’m the type of guy that roots for the underdog. With E3 2013 around the corner and next-gen being all the talk, its nice to see such a success story.
In the end, you can’t go wrong putting down $20.00 on this one. Now, let’s hope Class4 (Undead Labs zombie MMO) becomes a reality.
