Overkill Software, the developer behind the Payday games, has released a pair of launch trailers for The Walking Dead, their first-person shooter set in the universe created by Robert Kirkman. Kirkman also offered some guidance in creating the game.
With the game launching on PC this week, Overkill has released both a gameplay launch trailer and a cinematic launch trailer. You can find more information on the game and watch both of these trailers below.
THINK. FIGHT. LIVE.
OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four player co-op action FPS where you fight the dead as well as the living. Set in The Walking Dead Universe, you and your group try to survive in a post-apocalyptic Washington D.C.
Four players form a tightly knit team; Aidan, Heather, Maya and Grant, where each character has their own skill tree, squad role, play style and background story. Now they all share a common objective where survival and teamwork is paramount.
Fight Together in 4 Player Co-Op
Team up with your friends and fight through everything the apocalypse throws at you.
Experience The Walking Dead
In a world where everything has changed. Walkers are a constant threat, but it’s the living that should scare you the most.
The Capital Has Fallen
Survive the streets of Washington DC, a city overrun with walkers. Put an extra thought in how to fight, one wrong move or too much noise will attract the horde.
Your Playstyle Matters
Each character comes with their specific abilities and skills. Help your team by holding the frontline, supporting them with med bags, or killing enemies.
Deep Progression System
Increase your characters’ powers by levelling up. Upgrade your camp’s defenses and take care of those that live there by any means necessary.
Modify Your Weapons
Be silent and tactical with a suppressor, or loud and proud by shortening the barrel of your shotgun. Modify to fit your playstyle.
Scavenging and Crafting
Pick up scrap on the go to turn them into tools and use them in the next fight, or to open new paths through the world.
The world changes and adapts automatically depending on your character’s level and the number of people playing with you.
While the game is currently only available on PC, a release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is currently planned for February 2019.
