State of Decay PC hits Steam Early Access tomorrow

Developer stresses that this really is a 'test version'

For all of its issues, State of Decay is still a survival sandbox I very much wish to explore. It has been an exclusive on Xbox Live Arcade -- where it's been doing incredibly well for itself -- but that's about to change. The PC version, which is debuting on Steam Early Access, drops tomorrow. The game will be priced at $19.99.

Developer Undead Labs does offer a word of warning: "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. What it won't have is a keyboard and mouse interface...not at first.

"Why not? Over the next however many weeks, we will be putting up versions of the keyboard interface and using your comments and feedback to make it awesome. Right this minute, the Early Access version requires an Xbox 360 controller (or a compatible 3rd-party controller, although we haven’t done much testing with those yet)."

The studio suggests sitting out for the time being if you're one to get frustrated by such issues. After enduring a long wait for the PC version, it's neat to see an immediate release date, even if we will have to put up with some missing features temporarily.

Greetings, PC Players! The Steam Release Date Is... [Undead Labs]
