State of Decay comes to Steam Early Access tomorrow

Zombie survival sandbox State of Decay will finally be playable on PC this week.

Undead Labs announced that the PC version will be available on Steam Early Access on September 20; presumably September 21 for those of us on this side of the International date line, for the samer price as the Xbox 360 version – $20.

State of Decay is going live without keyboard and mouse support – that’s on the way before full release – and Undead Labs warns that it’s very much a beta release and should not be considered indicative of the final game experience.

“What you’ll see this Friday, if you choose to join forces with us to make the PC version kick ass, is a test version. It’s not ready to be reviewed. It will not be perfect. It may still have crashes,” the developer wrote.

“This process is not for everyone. Casual players, the easily frustrated, and the short of time should not get the Early Access version. Hey, I am all three of those things, y’all. Those are not criticisms. It’s just that we want everyone to have the experience that best suits their needs. You all deserve the best, so if you’re not into giving feedback, just wait a few months and play the final version after we make it great.
And it will be great, with the help of the rest of you – the hardcore early adopters that made State of Decay into something huge.”
