OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Gameplay Revealed

The first gameplay trailer Overkill's The Walking Dead co-op shooter gives a better idea of how the game will be like.

Based on The Walking Dead comic-book series from Image Comics by creator Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Haunt), OVERKILL's The Walking Dead game is an upcoming co-op FPS that has already showcased four of its playable characters with their unique back-stories that has hardened them into the toughest survivors in a post-apocalyptic world. The studio that worked on games like Payday 2 has been working on this project for some time and during E3 2018, they revealed a gameplay trailer.

Belonging to one of the many E3 2018 games, OTWD revealed a gameplay footage displaying our protagonists at work and how they thrive as a group.




The trailer opens up with a cinematic CGI and then going back and forth into brief playing moments where players run into a horde of walkers. With an expert melee attacker, one medic, a sniper and scavenger in a crowd of four, Overkill sets up a team play for survival. Teamwork will be essential to stay alive for the characters in Washington D.C. now overrun with zombies. Although they made it pretty clear about building a game with different tone, a more detailed gameplay would have been much appreciated.

After building much anticipation from fans for the past few months, developers finally gave us a much expected look at the in-game demo of how it looks like for a band of zombie-apocalypse survivors fighting against all sort of odds. While exploring walkers infested areas, emphasis on stealth would be pretty high for the survival of you and your teammates. The fact that many speculating OTWD will turn out to be just another Left 4 Dead is wrong but we are sure that the developers will be flattered by this comparison.

Overkill's The Walking Dead Introduces Heather

The fourth character in upcoming Overkill's The Walking Dead, Heather is here and you would not want to cross her.

Now that Season 8 of The Walking Dead TV series is over, we are out of our TWD fun-dose again. Developer Overkill Studios has been working on a co-op shooter game based on the same universe but it will be nothing like the zombie series on AMC. Except for the fact that these are both inspired from the works of comic-book writer Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Haunt) published by Image Comics. We are in for a new trailer that introduces a new character from the game.

The brand-new zombie-apocalypse survivor Heather marks her debut in the character reveal trailer from the upcoming Walking Dead game.




Heather is seen scavenging with a shopping cart inside an abandoned store and a zombie was gawking at her from outside. A shot is fired that took down the walker and three strangers enter the store apparently looking for her. When the female of that group attacks her upon spotting, she tackled and then took out another before smashing her previous attacker on a glass of the nearby freezer that slashed the woman's throat. She then shot her second attacker before a bottle smashes on her head by the third.

What's most impressive about her is that not only she can take care of her when she is outnumbered; she took some beating like a champ. Later, when the two of them were spreading her supplies among them, she came back and locked up the gate in front of the alley before attracting a horde by shooting a flare. When the guy who knocked he asks for key, she stubbornly kept asking for her bag until he gives up. She then leaves them to chance by dropping the key outside of the gate

Heather happens to be the fourth playable character and judging by her traits, we guess that her forte is scavenging. Three other players are introduced before her and among them Aiden seems like an expert in melee, Maya is definitely a medic and Grant is a sniper. Together, these tough leading characters will fight zombie swarms and build base for survival. We are expecting another trailer that showcases an event which brings all three survivors to band together to fight for their lives.

Awaiting an official release date for fall 2018, upcoming co-op shooter Overkill’s The Walking Dead is set to release for playing on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Both Overkill and Starbreeze Studios has been collaborating for this project with Kirkman’s company Skybound. Much like a possible real-life scenario, the game teaches you that by working together, you might have a shot at surviving but if you choose to fly solo, you won't probably last for long. Implementing that aspect in the game will surely make it interesting.

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.

Overkill's The Walking Dead Introduces Aidan

Comic-book writer Robert Kirkman (Haunt, Invincible) has been writing The Walking Dead series for Image Comics from long before it was a hit. So far, Telltale’s The Walking Dead series has done pretty good job in capturing the mode of the series in its own world but even that is coming to an end in 2018. Looks like, it would be a good time for Overkill Studios to bring their long delayed video game based on The Walking Dead.

They've been pretty busy lately with another of their project, which is the Payday series and The Walking Dead game they started with is still under development. However, by the recent look of things, it seems that Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment will be collaborating with Overkill for the game and they even released a new video.

Check out this trailer introducing Aidan, one of the four characters who will be part of this zombie apocalypse survival struggle.

This one is the first trailer among more to come that introduces a character named Aidan, who is a stressed business personnel currently settled in Washington D.C. As he was already struggling through all the responsibilities of life on his shoulder, shit just hit the fan and a zombie outbreak collapses civilization. He was caught in the middle of this apocalypse and turned out to be the sole survivor among many. Aidan gets out from the corpses lying around and draws out more to face them with a nailed baseball bat.

The game is going to be a four player co-op first person shooter and the characters will operate in the surroundings of Washington D.C. Each of these playable four characters is skilled in particular abilities and each has a different backstory. Based on their skill tree, some will be efficient in gunning down incoming wave of walkers and some might be good with going silent and deadly with a knife. As we see Aidan sport-fully wielding that baseball bat at the end of the trailer, chances are, he is melee character.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead will come out at some time in 2018 to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There will be multiple missions and raids to gather supplies and recruit survivors to strengthen your own base. So, that next time you stay prepared when there is an attack or horde of walkers decides to pay a visit.
