State of Decay now available in Australia

The amended version of State of Decay, Undead Labs' open-world zombie survival title, is now available for Australian players on Xbox live Arcade, according to the developer's official Facebook page.

"In just a few hours, we will finally be live ALL around the world. That's right, Australia. We're rolling out in the wee hours, our time," the update states. "It will take time to propogate, and so even though some of you may see it at 5 PM AWST/7 PM AEST, it may take longer for everyone to see it. Tomorrow will be our official Australian release party. If you live in that fine country, get ready to survive."

"Apparently it is available right now for some Australians. Check in if you've got the download started!"

The original game submitted by Undead Labs was refused classification by the Board late last month under the "Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games," because the title features use of "illicit or proscribed drug use" as incentives in the game, which is prohibited by the guidelines.

State of Decay launched worldwide on June 5 on Xbox Live Arcade. It didn't launch in Australia as intended because of a delay with the country's Board. Upcoming DLC, an add-on sandbox mode to test how long players can survive a zombie apocalypse without the limitations imposed by a storyline, is expected soon.
