Meet Aidan, the first character from OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead to get a cinematic trailer for the upcoming cooperative first-person shooter. He also the first of the game’s four unique playable characters in this apocalyptic world fighting to stay alive.
Inspired by the rich story universe of Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer FPS action game set in Washington, D.C., as an outbreak brings the dead back to life. In this test of strategy and endurance, players will band together with up to three friends on a variety of missions and raids, securing supplies and survivors to strengthen their base camp against the threat of both the dead and the living – by any means necessary.
The other three characters haven’t been announced yet but each will have their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories. Now they all share a common objective where survival and teamwork is paramount. OVERKILL promises close-up and intense action, taking enemies out carefully with silent melee attacks or go in guns blazing. You need to be able to improvise, as nothing is certain, and a horde of walkers is always around the corner.
OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is expected to launch in fall 2018 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
