State of Decay will be coming to the PC via Steam's Early Access program.

State of Decay, Undead Labs' zombie sandbox survival game, is coming to the PC via Steam's Early Access program. Via its official Twitter account, the developer has revealed a whole wealth of exclusive enhancements that PC users will have over their Xbox 360 brethren.

First up, being released on the Early Access program means that fans will be able to play the game literally as it is being developed, just like Arma 3 and Prison Architect. The PC version will also sport higher-resolution graphics, better textures, support for higher monitor resolutions and a boosted frame rate.

While Undead Labs said that it had "no objection" to fans making user-created mods for the game, it won't ship with official mod tools, so perspective modders will have to tinker with the game's nuts and bolts to get mods working.

No official release date for the PC version has been given, but the team hopes to that it "will be out before the end of the year."

State of Decay was a smash hit for the Xbox Live arcade, selling over 250,000 copies in just two days. It is currently singleplayer only, and while Undead Labs has claimed that multiplayer is simply not possible with the current version of the game, any potential sequels would have a co-op focus.

Let's see if some of PC gamings more ambitious modders can't try and refute that statement. They did, after all, manage to hack multiplayer into GTA III back in the day.
