Today is the day for excited fans of the much-anticipated release of Overkill’s The Walking Dead as it sees the light of day on PC for North and South America, Europe, and the rest of the world. In celebration of this, publishers Starbreeze, Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games have also thrown in a rather short, but nonetheless, intense launch trailer showcasing some of the action players can expect to see.
For those who haven’t heard about this title, let me give you a quick summary – Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op shooter where players must stay together as their lives depend on it. You and the rest of the group partake in a host of missions to find survivors, secure supplies and ultimately survive, but in order to do that you must either be tactical, or you could do it all the fun way and face walkers head on for a little one on one Zombie encounter. Each character has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles, and background stories so it’s up to you which one suits you better.
Starbreeze is also hosting STREAMING DEAD LIVE!, which is a special launch celebration beginning today at 5:00 pm ET/2:00 pm PT over on Twitch. This special streaming event will have lots of familiar faces that include the likes of Shroud, Anne Munition, ANGRYPUG, and JGhosty. The event will be hosted by Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller.
Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be available via Steam on November 6 and you can order your copy of the game right now on Amazon if you’d like. For PS4 and Xbox One console owners, you don’t have too long to wait as Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be released on those platforms February 2019.
