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.

Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season Details

Just like all good things should come to an end, Telltale’s The Walking Dead is finally coming to a conclusion this year. Developer Telltale Games has done a fantastic fan-service by adapting creator Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Invincible)'s post-apocalyptic comic book series The Walking Dead from Image Comics into an episodic action-adventure franchise. It is one of Telltale’s most celebrated series much like the television adaptation of AMC’s zombie drama of the same name, which is currently airing its Season 8 on cable TV.

Six years have passed since the series began its journey with series protagonist Clementine and there has been only three seasons so far. She has grown from a little girl who just lost her parents to a seasoned survivor of a zombie apocalypse. Her journey in this walker-infested world is finally coming to an end that started with her guardian angel Lee Everett. We cannot say that she is also following Lee's path towards the end step by step as Melissa Hutchinson returns to voice her character.

Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season was first announced back in 2017 during San Diego Comic Con and we only knew that the release is due to 2018. Although there was no official release date to begin with, our guess is that The Final Season may come out this summer or probably in the fall. The time might be closer to some holiday season of 2018. The Walking Dead: Season One was launched on April, Season Two and A New Frontier chose the month of December for their release.

Now, we all know that The Final Season marks the end of Clementine's story and fans are already wondering what would happen to her character then. It was revealed from PAX East panel 2018 that, the chapter will kick off right from the events of A New Frontier but there is a time jump in between. Clementine will be older and mature that she was back then and many things will not be the same as before. Because, the world has already gone to hell after a zombie apocalypse and no one is around to keep everything running.

A post-apocalyptic world means already the end of mankind and society, which only worsens as time passes. So, when the season will start, it will be from a much worse scenario that what we saw in Season Three. Little AJ is still on her care and chances are, she might get into a situation where the kid needs a lot of protecting. Clementine will come across plenty of new characters who would either help in her journey or become enemies. A dog named Rosie will be introduced who would at least make it through the first episode.

Since, Telltale’s The Walking Dead series is mostly scripted due to its episodic graphic adventure style. Any outcome players' face is from a series of preset choices set in the plot to unfold as they make progress. However, The Final Season is bringing a change to this gameplay mechanics for good. Any typical good zombie game genre should frequently put characters into battle zombies to keep things interesting. So, Telltale decided to include unscripted zombie fights to throw Clementine in danger and make this challenging.

Developers at Telltale Games have also noted that, considering an installment of a series that builds on death and despair, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier was a bit too colorful. By this, they are only hinting that The Final Season will go back to its root and adjust to a more worn-out color palette. AMC has already done it with logo for The Walking Dead TV series gradually following a more decomposing style after each season.

Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season First Artwork Revealed

When developer Telltale Games introduced the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead with a new vision with Telltale’s The Walking Dead in 2012, people just fell in love with the unique storytelling way of their episodic graphic adventure. Over the years, we saw the character of Clementine grow from a young girl to the kickass grown up in "A New Frontier" and now, with Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season headed this way, we have to say good-bye to the series.

Till the day Clementine was rescued by Lee Everett from her house, she has been through a lot of dire situations in that world taken over by zombies and now, we will see her in action for one last time at the end of this year.

Telltale Games also released a key-art for the title for fans to get an exclusive first look. We can see series protagonist Clementine with the young boy AJ, she took in under her wings to protect at all cost. She is older now and is grizzled by the brutality this world inflicted upon her. If you look closely then you will notice that the key-art above strikes a resemblance with the one released for the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead with Lee and Clementine on it.

Below is the Tweet from the official Twitter handle of Telltale Games as they announce the final season for their critically acclaimed series.

Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season is set to release later in 2018 with no fixed date yet and a first look of the game will be revealed on April 6 at PAX East panel. It was during last year's San Diego Comic Con, when Telltale had announced for a planned fourth season which will be the last one and will draw conclusion to Clementine's story. We must admit that it is really hard seeing such a great franchise finally ending but even harder to see a character like Clementine go.

The Walking Dead: Our World Gameplay Trailer

The creator-owned comic-book series The Walking Dead from Image Comics by writer Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Invincible) has done all sorts of wonders from its launch in 2003. When AMC television decided to adapt the book for television, the series have been breaking countless records on cable TV history and currently on its eighth season. Another spin-off show Fear The Walking Dead is growing its audience as well.

The franchise also spawned a couple of successful games for mobile devices and other platforms. Seems like, The Walking Dead is aiming for being the most adapted concept on various media. Following the insane success of the free-to-play mobile game Pokémon GO, The Walking Dead is coming soon with the AR technology for their upcoming mobile release The Walking Dead: Our World.

Developer Next Games have dropped a sneak peek gameplay trailer for upcoming The Walking Dead: Our World on YouTube recently.




Those who have already played the predecessor game employing AR technology could immediately relate the similarities between Pokémon GO and The Walking Dead: Our World, well, except for the end of the world part of course. Since the game is based on AMC television series, which means you may bump into Carl Grimes, Daryl Dixon, Glenn Rhee, Rick Grimes or Michonne cleaning up zombie hordes as well as yourself.

While you clear up your surroundings off the zombies, you will level up and be sure to check for new weapons according to their class and rarity. At the Games Developers Conference (GDC), The Walking Dead: Our World is expected to premiere along with a few other AR games. The game is open for pre-registration and hopefully will come out sometime later in 2018.

With Telltale Games' episodic survival horror take on the series, gamers on many platforms are already in love with the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead. Plus, another adventure of the undead world set in Washington is coming soon in Overkill’s The Walking Dead. Now-a-days, people are always busy with their cell phones and Next Games just brought the thrill of the action into their pocket and grasp at any time.

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.

Telltale’s Walking Dead Collection Announced

Developer studio Telltale Games has successfully mastered the art of episodic graphic adventure narrating through their acclaimed Walking Dead series and that is no news to the fans or the world. Then came two installments, a spin-off and an oncoming season is also in the line for 2018 release. Sometimes, we do wonder what it would be like if there was a collection of all the episodes from Telltale’s The Walking Dead series packed into one? It seems that we are not the one thinking about that.

Looks like, Telltale has also entertained the idea of a bundle where all 19 episodes from Season 1-3 and Michonne mini-series will be included along with The Walking Dead: 400 Days. They have taken an initiative of bringing their award-winning Walking Dead series into one place. Check out the trailer Telltale has released recently for The Walking Dead Collection.




Now, this is not the only exciting news. Every episode that came out before "A New Frontier" was released will be graphically enhanced to experience the horrors of a post-apocalyptic world to a new scale. To give us a better idea of how the visual experience will differentiate from the earlier installments from the visually upgraded version, Telltale has gave us a peek with some awesome side-by-side shots for comparison.

In 2012, Telltale's The Walking Dead made its debut, as one of the games of the year and that was really pretty impressive. It actually batched a couple of game of the year awards at the end of that year and they deserve full credit for that. Since the success of the original hit-season, in 2012, Telltale have released the Season 2 of the series and then released Season 3 later and now there is the Season 4 in development pipeline. Season 3, however, didn’t seem like their best shot. It had at least a major turnout and made us agitate for more.

It is no news the Telltale is finally bringing Clementine’s story to a close. The new season features Melissa Hutchinson to reprise the role of Clementine as well. The fourth season will also focus and lay emphasis on Clementine and thus we will see a conclusion to that saga. Telltale Games, however, may continue their story-telling venture into the world of The Walking Dead with newly developed storyline and new characters in future.

As the game celebrates its five years of success and inception since its debut, it has now and ever since then gained attention, popularity, fans and much more. The amazing turnaround of Clementine’s story is gradually moving to the end as the game comes to us next year in Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season. Without much ado about nothing and indubitably, we know that the game will once again stage an everlasting surprise for us.
