State of Decay PC confirmed for 2013

Enhanced graphics and improved frame rate but no new content or features

Undead Labs has confirmed that the PC version of Xbox Live Arcade smash hit State of Decay will be released in 2013.

In a post on the studio's forums, Undead Labs said it'll be more specific about the game's launch date "as soon as we can".

The PC version of the open-world zombie game will boast enhanced graphics, higher resolutions and improved frame rate. It "will not have different content or features, however", Undead Labs said.

"What the PC version also won't have are modding tools (for time/testing reasons), but we have no objection to mods or modders, and we look forward to seeing what our PC players come up with."

The studio also intends to take part in Steam's Early Access program, meaning a controller-only PC version will be made available in advance of the final release for the purposes of feedback. The final version of the title will have mouse and keyboard support.

Undead Labs said last month that State of Decay had become the second fastest selling game in Xbox Live history after it was downloaded over a quarter of a million times in the two days following its June 5 release.

A few weeks after release, the official Xbox blog said State of Decay had become the "fastest selling original game ever" on XBLA, having moved 500,000 copies.

Microsoft Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer has expressed interest in bringing the hit title to Xbox One, noting last month that Undead Labs has "bigger plans for the franchise".
