Want a standalone DayZ experience? Try State of Decay this week

DayZ is a popular Arma 2 mod that puts players into a massive online open world filled with zombies. It really rejuvenated the zombie game genre in 2012. Supplies are limited and you’ll have to not only fend off zombies, but many other online players as well. The game is still a mod that requires another game, and there have been other standalone open world survival zombie games in the works as well; for example, State of Decay be developer Undead Labs.

You may think it’s a DayZ clone, but the game has been in development for a while, and it was formerly announced as Class3 in 2011. State of Decay is heading to the Xbox 360 (XBLA) this week on June 5, 2013, with a PC version coming later.

Compared to other zombie games, this game will really make you feel like you’re in a zombie world. State of Decay will feature stealth, survival, evasion, distractions, base building, survivor community, securing resources, and more.

What I’m more excited about is hearing that Jesper Kyd is scoring the game. I have been missing his musical talents as of late, since he’s not a part of the Assassin’s Creed experience anymore ever since Assassin’s Creed III.

So far OXM Magazine is the only video game outlet to review the game early. They gave the game an 8.0.
