OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead is aiming to be a very special entry into the Walking Dead franchise, a franchise that has a successful comic, TV series and spinoff, and video games. But this video game will be very different, as it’ll focus on cooperative gameplay starring four characters who are new to the universe in the eyes of the gamers. I.E., not ones associated with the comics, TV shows, or other games. However, despite having a lot of hype, the game has gotten a lot of delays.
That being said, things seem to be lining up for a 2019 release, and as such, the team at OVERKILL have revealed that a closed beta for the game can be played starting on October 9th.
As for how you can get into the beta, if you pre-order the game, you will automatically get access to it. You can pre-order via this link. Important to note though is that if you get the standard version of the game via pre-order, you’ll get one key, but if you get the special edition, you’ll get four keys so that your friends can play with you in the beta.
This beta, and the ones to follow, will no doubt help work out the gameplay kinks until OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead is ready to release next year.
