Overkill’s The Walking Dead Launches This November
Overkill’s cooperative multiplayer first-person shooter based on Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead” is officially coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 6 in North and South America, and on November 8 in the rest of the world, it announced Tuesday.
The game will be available both physically at most major retailers and digitally for $59.99. A steel book deluxe edition including the base game, the “Night Raid Character Pack” downloadable content, a variety of cosmetic skins, a digital art book, and more will also be available for $79.99.
Pre-orders for either version of the game will include an assortment of in-game cosmetic skins as a bonus. Pre-orders for the physical steel book deluxe edition will also include four collector cards illustrated by comic book artist Dan Panosian.
A PC-exclusive closed beta for Overkill’s The Walking Dead will begin later this year and is available to PC pre-orders only. Players who pre-order the standard edition on PC will receive a single invitation to the closed beta, while those who pre-order the deluxe edition will receive four closed beta invites to share with friends.
Here is a brief overview of the game, via Starbreeze:
Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer shooter in which players must band together on a variety of missions and raids to find survivors, secure supplies and stay alive. Use stealth to evade enemies tactically, or dismember walkers limb from limb with brute force and firepower. Each of the game’s four playable characters has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories.
Check out the Trailer:
The footage in the trailer is suitably grisly, though somewhat unrefined. There seems to be some shanky animations, though it’s still half a year away so they have plenty of time to refine that. With any luck, it will overthrow Survival Instinct as the best The Walking Dead game to date.
