The end is nigh with State of Decay

The end is nigh with State of Decay

Back in 2011, Microsoft announced that developer Undead Labs was working on a zombie-related title but only today do we learn more about State of Decay. Planned for release on Xbox Live Arcade and PC, the game will put you in the shoes of a survivor of some sort of apocalypse which causes all the undead to invade the planet. Cooperation and survival in an open world environment will be at the core of gameplay, which obviously reminds of DayZ (and recently announced The War Z). This might be a very good chance for console owners to have a taste at the end of the world. Images inside, trailer to come if we ever find something else than the Youtube video.

Just watched the trailer, looks surprisingly interesting. Well... At least for me. Gonna keep an eye on this one, zombies are my weak point, I bought whole Secret World because of awesome first location which this game reminded me of.

The game looks very bad from the technical point of view - textures, models, animations, sound. CryENGINE 3 is nowhere to be seen.

"The end is nigh with State of Decay"? That sounded right, nice one.

Looks ok for an XBL game tbh.

I thought that when i first saw it...was like "multibillion corporation, who makes millions from their core franchises (halo, gears) and they make this"...but then i read it was an arcade release and was actually pleasently surprised. Looks like it could be good.

    droezelke @Sdarts: oh, i didn't know about the app. But I know that it's their way to go against piracy. (45 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts For 1080p, you need the "4220", "5400" or higher Video Bitrate options. It's a very well know restriction that has been like this for many years. You can Google about it if you want. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But shows like Orange is the New Black, Iron Fist, and a few others I tried this time around only have the "2740" or "3000" Video Bitrate options, meaning 720p resolution. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If you need to check what resolution you're getting, just press "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + D" for the A/V Stats screen to come up. You can override/force quality with "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + S". (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The only way to watch in 1080p is to use Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Safari, consoles (like PS4 and XB1), and smart TVs. Everything else you're restricted to 720p. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Like .mp4, .mkv, etc. Also, even if you don't download, you still can't stream above 720p. This isn't possible even in Netflix's own official app. Nor on Firefox or Google Chrome. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: The files you download through the Windows 10 Netflix app are encrypted, you can't even watch them with VLC, Media Player Classic or Windows Media Player. They don't even have a format. (12 Hours ago)
