Xbox Live Arcade zombie title State of Decay has received its first console patch; however, users are noting the update is causing numerous problems in-game.
According to the development team at Undead Labs, numerous bugs believed to be fixed by the title update remained problematic in the live version of the game. These include reports of an error warning users of "too many" zombie infestations in-game. It has been determined that while the patch is being successfully downloaded it is not being applied in the live game.
Executive producer Jeff Strain acknowledged the problem on the studio's official forums, stating that while the studio is in touch with Xbox to find a solution, it is yet to be able to offer an estimated date for the patch fix.
"we're on the phone with our publisher right now getting everyone mobilized," wrote Strain. "There's nothing we can do at UL to fix this problem. Once the update has been handed off, the process of getting it to you is something only the Xbox people can handle. So, we're calling in the troops to get going on solving this problem immediately."
The problematic patch was first made available on June 14. The highly successful title received an 8.5 out of 10 from Polygon in a review that states: "Small complaints notwithstanding, State of Decay is one of the most cohesive, terrifying and engaging open-world games I've ever played."
