We met a character named Aidan in the very first trailer for Overkill’s upcoming video game The Walking Dead, set in the same universe as the comic books and television series’ but telling a story entirely its own. Later, the second one introduced Maya.
A third trailer released today lets us get to know Grant, an old timer who’s searching for his granddaughter in the wasteland. In Grant’s character trailer, he kicks back and drinks a bottle of whiskey with a zombie, which already makes him my favorite.
The game, coming in Fall 2018, will expand upon “The Walking Dead” Universe by introducing brand new characters, tasked with fighting for their lives among the undead.
“OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four player co-op action FPS, where you and your friends fight the dead as well as the living. Set in The Walking Dead Universe, you and your group tries to survive in a post-apocalyptic Washington D.C.
Each character has their own Special Abilities, Skill Trees, Squad Roles, Play Styles and Story Arcs, but teamwork is paramount. The action is close-up and intense: take out enemies carefully with silent melee attack or go in guns blazing with your choice of each class firearms. You need to be able to improvise as nothing is certain and a horde of walkers is always right around the corner.”
Overkill’s The Walking Dead will sink its teeth into Steam, Xbox One and Playstation 4.
