Undead Labs has released an excellent new trailer and confirmed the release date for State of Decay, an upcoming zombie survival FPS. The game is set to land on XBLA and PC this June.
It’s tough for a zombie game to stand out amongst the hordes of undead releases these days, but State of Decay does just that. Currently in development by Undead Labs, which is fronted by ArenaNet founder and World of Warcraft co-creator, Jeff Strain – State of Decay is an interesting project for three big reasons.
First up, it’s a zombie sandbox game built on CryEngine 3that focuses more on survival tactics than manic shooting, putting it more on a par with DayZ than, say, Left 4 Dead. Here, players make their stand by designing and fortifying a home base, performing daring raids for food and ammunition, and rescue other playable survivors with unique talents. It’s also a single-player game, which removes that all-too-easy DayZ comparison and puts it more in line with..well, nothing else really, except for maybe Project Zomboid. But this is first-person, Zomboid wasn’t..

First-person shooter (FPS) games may be frowned upon for promoting franchises and lacking creativity, but it doesn’t change the fact that the genre is in high demand. War games such as Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II are a dominant mainstream genre that are both highly coveted and criticized. While popular FPS games meet the demands of the masses, uniquely developed and creative games fall beneath the radar. Despite any backlash, FPS games such as the upcoming “Crysis 3″ hit the market hard and keep die-hard gamers happy and entertained.

Could Ravaged become the team-based, tactical, crazy MMOFPS we are all hoping for? Perhaps. Something to give COD and Battlefield a run for their money? Probably not. Ravaged has an undoubted level of potential buried beneath its current crop of beta bugs. With some time to correct and improve gameplay before launch, it could become something special. Could. But there’s a lot to do.
Developed by 2 Dawn Studios, Ravaged takes place after a catastrophic climate change has devastated the earth and ripped out any semblance of order. Mercenaries, warlords, and madmen roam the streets in an on-going power struggle, while a resistance has emerged hoping to put the madness on the surface to bed. This is where you come in, once you’ve pledged your alliance to either the Scavengers or the Resistance.
Gameplay takes place in 32-man maps designed for equal parts vehicular combat and dramatic effect. Each map captures the essence of the post-apocalyptic setting, with desolate dusty landscapes and snow covered cities wonderfully crafted with realistic looking upturned cars and abandoned factories – setting the stage for some grungy post-apoc combat.
