Promising some awesome four player co-op action in the vein of PayDay, Overkill’s The Walking Dead is now available. It’s only for PC in North America and Europe with the console versions out next year. Still, it’s been a while since we’ve had a game based on The Walking Dead series that wasn’t from Telltale (not counting The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct).
To celebrate the release, two new trailers have been release. The latest cinematic trailer provides a look at the four playable characters as they assault a camp and take out zombies. The gameplay trailer provides brief snippets of things you’ll be doing – and killing – in-game. With objectives like scavenging for supplies, finding survivors and battling zombies, there’s plenty to keep you busy.
It’s also possible to either tackle missions with stealth or rush in, murdering everything in sight. Overkill’s The Walking Dead also provides a good amount of variety with various skill trees for its characters. They also have their own backstories so hopefully there’s some interesting banter between missions.
