Product Overview:
Make your stand against the collapse of society in the ultimate zombie survival-fantasy game. Explore an open world full of dangers and opportunities that respond to your every decision. Recruit a community of playable survivors, each with their own unique skills and talents. Design and fortify your base against the relentless hordes of the undead. Perform daring raids for food and ammunition, and do whatever it takes to live another day. “State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition” brings the hit zombie-survival-fantasy franchise to Xbox One and Steam, delivered in beautifully remastered 1080p.

Features:
• Upgrade plan for Xbox 360 “State of Decay” owners
− “State of Decay” Xbox 360 owners will receive a 33 percent discount on “State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition.” The discount will end June 30, 2015. To qualify for the discount, players must have purchased the base game, “State of Decay,” and have the same active Xbox Live account when “State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition” becomes available for purchase on Xbox One.

• An exclusive new character for all “State of Decay” owners
− Gurubani Kaur used to be a wild child in college, but the outbreak sparked a return to the faith of her youth. She was born in Punjab, but moved to America before she learned to talk. Her weapon of choice is an old Indian cavalry sword that her father kept as an antique.
− To acquire Gurubani, players must have purchased the base game, “State of Decay,” and have the same active Xbox Live account when “State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition” becomes available for purchase on Xbox One.

• All ‘first-year’ content completely remastered
− The original “State of Decay,” along with major add-ons “Breakdown” and “Lifeline,” is fully-remastered in stunning 1080p. Improved lighting, textures, and shadows bring the faded beauty of Trumbull Valley and the ravaged city of Danforth to life like never before. Animations and combat mechanics are completely over-hauled to add a new level of intensity and action. Hundreds of a smaller improvements to core game systems make “State of Decay: Year-One Edition” a must-have.

• Xbox One additions
− New Achievements
− 1500 Gamer Score
− Community Challenges and Rewards
− Individual Rewards

• New mission type
− Mysterious supply crates start dropping into remote areas across the map, attracting massive hordes of zombies. Wipe out the infestation and you can grab some of the rarest and most powerful equipment seen in “State of Decay.”

• New vehicles: SUV…and more
− The new SUV sets a new standard for durability, and it doesn't end there — over 25 new vehicle skins are distributed across all maps.

• Unlocking heroes: lifeline roster
− Your favorite characters from “Lifeline” can now be unlocked in “Breakdown” with a new set of Challenges. Hop into the familiar boots of Hawkes, Kilo, and Vince ... or take control of the previously unplayable Kelly “Sasquatch” Eldridge.

• New weapons: under-barrel attachments and incendiary ammo
− Now if you find the right weapons, you can switch to an under-barrel grenade launcher or your assault rifle... or load incendiary ammunition into any shotgun, and take out crowds of zombies without even switching weapons.

• New music
− Featuring 30 minutes of intense new music from award winning composer Jesper Kyd.

• Community improvements
− The facility actions from “Lifeline” now show up in every version of the game, including ammo-refilling and snack-making at your base. NPC Enclaves are also getting a makeover, making it easier to trade and build trust with them.

No way in hell will it look like this in gameplay videos. These screenshots in no way do it justice, i am damn sure of it.

It's a one damn fugly game for sure, but fun for some hours tho. Still can't see a reason to re-buy it if they can't be bothered to add co-op. Seems they take the lazy way for remastering, like many other devs these days.

This has that typical PC-look that I have grown so weary of, although in a much lower texture-res ... but Kudos to releasing un-doctored screens - an absolute rarity these days.

This seems like such a waste. SOD is hands down the best zombie game I've ever played, but this is clearly a quick cash in. Look, we added a vehicle and a character therefore it is completely overhauled! I was really hoping Undead Labs would've put the time in to create a sequel rather than spending all this time just adding a couple features and making it compatible with Xbone.

Developer note* If you are going to do a next gen version of a crappy looking last gen game, at least make it look like a last gen game. These visuals look poor for a 360 game, and they will stand out that much more in 1080.

Should have made SOD2 instead, ugly, cheap, tacky cash in, and I love the series having bought it on 360 and then twice on PC + DLC for the wife and I.

They work on a new game at the same time for sure. These remasters are usually done by few people out of the development team.

Best zombie survival game I played in last few years.

These images look upscaled. I'd be shocked if they weren't.

Zombies are not supposed to look nice ;)

For anyone wondering, i played the game on pc max settings and it looked just as awful.
But thats a real shame, game-play wise i really enjoyed it and the only reasons it did not get more hours, was because of the whole presentation(animations, sound design, IQ).
