Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a new story set within the Walking dead world. It features all new characters, and for the first time, 4-person co-op gameplay where you must work together to survive the zombie apocalypse. The game has launched on PC, and is set to arrive on consoles next year. But, the content for the PC version won’t wait, because they’re going to continue releasing content to expand the story and game world via seasonal packages. And now, Season 2 has released.
OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead
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.
Though The Walking Dead universe is full of properties, including the legendary comic book, its adaptation TV series, and even a spinoff series not directly connected to the books, as well as popular video games, people are always looking for more. Which is why many are excited for Overkill’s The Walking Dead, which will feature four new characters taking on the world that they thought they once new. But, as they arrive in Gamescom, they now find themselves delaying the console version of the game until 2019.
The Walking Dead franchise is no stranger to video games at this point. Telltale’s success with their comic book adaption is well-known, and both the comic and TV series have been adapted into other games — usually, cheap phone stuff. Overkill’s The Walking Dead, however, is different — it’s a serious attempt at a big expensive AAA fancy-pants game set in the comic’s universe.
A new cinematic trailer was released today for OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead, the upcoming cooperative first-person shooter in development by OVERKILL – A Starbreeze Studio, together with its partners Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games. This video features Aidan, the first of the game’s four unique playable characters fighting to stay alive in a post-apocalyptic world.
