State of Decay brings open-world zombie survival to Xbox Live Arcade in June

Undead Labs' zombie-infested third-person action game State of Decay is coming to Xbox Live Arcade in June, the developer announced today.

The release window announcement coincides with a new trailer for the Xbox 360 game, posted above, which shows the breadth of survival activities players will be able to enjoy: raids, exploration, rescue operations, base-building and the gory destruction of hundreds of zombies. State of Decay's sandbox world is replete with dynamically generated content, from its zombie hordes to its playable survivors, each with their own special talents.

State of Decay is also planned for release on Windows PC.

For more information, read our hands-on report of Undead Labs' zombie survival adventure from PAX Prime and our PAX East interview with State of Decay artist John Gronquist, who succinctly describes the game as "a mixture of Grand Theft Auto-type freestyle play" and "Animal Crossing with zombies."
