The only thing that seems to keep going more than the zombies in The Walking Dead is the franchise itself. For proof, this multiplayer, co-op, action FPS is named OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead. We have the first trailer for one of the four characters, and, although it is only CG, it could persuade us to forget about our zombie fatigue.
Set in Washington, D.C., Aidan seems to have a lot of stress in his life. Family, work, and everyday demands are taking a toll. It could be our imagination, but Aidan seems to have adjusted well to his new situation in the apocalypse. Perhaps, he even found his true calling.
OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead will let four players work together on missions to find resources to keep safe from walkers and living threats. Characters will have unique skill trees and abilities to help your group survive. (This is just speculation, but, since Valve will never release it, could this be a good substitute for Left for Dead 3?)
We will not know for sure until Fall 2018 when the game will finally see release. Until then, check out the trailer, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Starbreeze Press Release
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
