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.
