State of Decay Patch Makes A Great Game Better

by

Developer Undead Labs has released a new patch for the PC version of their incredible open-world, zombie survival title State of Decay. The studio has described this latest patch by saying “it’s a whopper.” We couldn’t agree more. The latest State of Decay patch fixes numerous bugs and other issues.

The latest patch will address some areas where problems have been occurring, such as with Physics, Pathing, Shooting, Graphics and Sound, Zombies, and AI. General bug fixes will also be included, because this is a patch, right?

  • Made vehicles less flippy
  • Improved vehicle entry distances
  • Added a physics test when a vehicle flips to avoid throwing you out of the environment
  • Fixed glass failing to break properly
  • Fixed potential crash when zombies try to path outside of the playable area
  • Fixed zombies occasionally running in straight line towards target through collision
  • Fixed zombies getting stuck facing each other
  • Fixed dead zombies running in place
  • Reduced instances of zombies walking through doors
