Microsoft revealed State Of Decay 3 at the Xbox Games Showcase.
The open-world zombie survival game will be receiving another title in the series and it has fans very excited.
The game was announced with an impressive cinematic trailer that depicted some very scary wildlife.
It'll be interesting to see how the third title in the series evolves with its release on the Xbox Series X.
Let's check out what we know about the title so far.
Official Announce Trailer
Microsoft is yet to reveal the release date for State Of Decay 3.
The trailer provided no information surrounding a potential release date.
However, it is confirmed that State Of Decay 3 will be available on Game Pass on release.
Undead Labs will be responsible for the development of State Of Decay 3.
They were the creators of the first two games in the series so its good to see Microsoft has kept the same developers.
Microsoft acquired Undead Labs in 2018, alongside a number of other studios.
Presumably, Microsoft did this to prepare new titles for the upcoming release of the Xbox Series X.
State Of Decay 3 will be released on the Xbox Series X and PC.
This is a difficult aspect of next-gen games to evaluate.
The games price depends on Microsoft's decision surrounding the price of their next-gen titles.
Rumours of price hikes across all next-gen games have been circulating online.
However, publishers such as Ubisoft have vowed they will not increase the price of their next-gen titles for the time being.
As State of Decay is a while away from its release, we can assume it will be at a higher price than current video games.
This would mean it would be priced at around $65-70
What Can We Expect?
The cinematic trailer didn't reveal many details about the upcoming title.
However, it looks like this game will take place in a desolate and rural environment.
The trailer shows an infected deer eating the corpse of a wolf.
This suggests State of Decay 3 may shift its focus from infected humans to infected wildlife.
This would certainly separate it from other zombie survival games in the genre.
Furthermore, the trailer's protagonist is seen around a campfire in the woods.
This could suggest the game will be focused on more traditional survival gameplay elements.
