Overkill's The Walking Dead Introduces Grant

We just finished watching The Walking Dead Season 8 on AMC and just about then developer Overkill Studios dropped a trailer for their second playable character Maya. Exactly one month after, they have released another brand-new clip on the third character Grant from their upcoming co-op shooter Overkill’s The Walking Dead. Since this is an introduction of this character, we are not getting any glimpse of gameplay or whatsoever but we hope that very soon we will get that too.

Watch out for Grant, a zombie-apocalypse survivor trying to make his way among the undeads in his old days in this cinematic trailer.




The trailer starts with a survivor of the outbreak who is in his late 60's, traveling on a freeway of Washington D.C. in rain. He takes sniper rifle off his shoulder to point at a car and then took a seat inside it. In glove compartment, he finds a bottle of whiskey along with a photograph of a young girl in costume, which reminded him of his own granddaughter who loved playing dress up and probably is missing now. As he talks about her, we see a jawless and mutilated walker sitting on driver's seat.

Grant gets comfy with his fellow biter and continued his tale while rain pours in as well as more walkers came roaming. When his fellow passenger impatiently tries to reach at him, old man Grant finally takes his gun out and shoots him in the face, attracting all nearby walkers towards his position but he rarely even flinched. His dark sense of humor and a calm attitude towards this new world is sure establishes him as a tough cookie. He probably has seen a lot and this is just not the end for him yet.

As a four-player co-op first person shooter Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in later 2018. Each four of them having different back-stories and skill set, will be taking part in completing missions in nearby areas of Washington D.C. Originally, this title was about to release back in 2016 but because of various circumstances, the studio eventually kept pushing back the dates. It's a good thing that their development is up and running again to finish this project.
