Overkill’s The Walking Dead

This four-player co-op multiplayer game is set to release in the fall of 2018 and will pit players against hoards of walkers with the option to either move in for quiet stealth kills or charge in firing. Improvising is going to be a key factor, as is teamwork. Each member of the four man team brings in their own special skills, abilities and story arcs, as well as having specific roles in the squad and different play styles, so players will need to work together as a team to survive in post-apocalyptic Washington D.C..

In a press release issued on December 10th, the game’s action is described as close-up and intense with players working together on a variety of missions and raids to secure both supplies and survivors for their base camp. Strengthening that base camp, by any means necessary, against both the walkers and the living.

First announced to be released in 2016, the game has had a number of delays. Overkill has now given us a look at the first playable character for the game, Aidan. The video starts out with problems most can relate to, a rapid-fire series of voicemails being listened to about mundane issues such as needing to pick up groceries and deadlines at work, the kinds of things that give us headaches on a daily basis. But then the scene changes in a closeup on Aidan’s eyes and we see him in post-apocalyptic Washington D.C. walking along a city street, baseball bat in hand, bodies all around him.

It is a lovely cinematic that is not representative of the game’s actual play, but it is a very good look into who this character was and who he has become in the world of The Walking Dead.
