State of Decay first title update not working

The promised first update for open-world survive 'em up State of Decay went live over the weekend, or so it seemed. Unfortunately, the fixes it was supposed to bring were clearly not in effect, and after a bit of checking developer Undead Labs has confirmed that "the update was being downloaded, but not applied." It's working on getting this working, but can say when that might be.

The promised first update for open-world survive 'em up State of Decay went live over the weekend, or so it seemed. Unfortunately, the fixes it was supposed to bring were clearly not in effect, and after a bit of checking developer Undead Labs has confirmed that "the update was being downloaded, but not applied." It's working on getting this working, but can say when that might be.

"I want to apologize," executive producer and company founder Jeff Strain said in a forum post (via XBLA Fans). "This is not acceptable, and you deserve better than this."

He added, "We're on the phone with our publisher right now getting everyone mobilized. There's nothing we can do at UL to fix this problem. Once the update has been handed off, the process of getting it to you is something only the Xbox people can handle. So, we're calling in the troops to get going on solving this problem immediately."

Undead Labs can't say when it'll be fixed, but Strain said "The worst case here is we simply roll the TU1 fixes into TU2."

Speaking of Title Update 2, here's what it should bring. Undead had hoped to deliver it for certification this week, but we'll see if these problems held it up. Strain noted that Undead "push [Microsoft] hard to get updates out quickly - probably a bit beyond their comfort zone."

      Wondered what was up with that. Very first thing I saw when I logged in was everyone crying about non-existent infestations.

        They may have complaining about the infestations in other town on the map. The game does have many bugs quirky bugs with the random events, npcs, how zombies spawn, and its overall frame rate.

      this game is very rough around the edges but I love it so far. I seem to be progressing pretty slowly haven't moved my base yet - not sure if the treehouse house is the one I want. The judge character seems like she'll be giving me problems later on.

        I would advise to grab the warehouse where you end that mission as it's fucking huge. Costs more materials upfront (50, as opposed to 30), but totally worth it.

          I'll check that out next time I play. I instead spent all my materials building up the church which was probably a stupid thing to do but oh well

            Nah, it had it's use at the time. Materials are everywhere, don't give spending them a second thought.

          That's what I'm looking at doing. Gotta stockpile a bunch of materials first.

            Of the three choices in that area, it's certainly the best. I ended up only moving there and once more later.

      I played the shit out of this game over the weekend. I think it's the first game that really exploits the zombie genre the way it should be. Great game.

        This is my feeling as well. It has almost everything I'd want in a survival zombie game. I do with the world was a bit more random for the sake of replayability but given how the world is put together that would probably be too much to ask for.

      It said on their site that this game is for PC as well. I checked on Steam and nothing came up on search. Is it a future title or a non-Steam game?
