Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op action game where players must band together on a variety of missions and raids to find survivors, secure supplies and stay alive. Use stealth to evade enemies tactically, or dismember walkers limb from limb with brute force and firepower. Each of the game’s four playable characters has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories.
Overkill’s The Walking Dead will arrive on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One on Feb. 6, 2019, in the Americas and Feb. 8, 2019, in Europe and other territories. Console pre-orders are available now digitally and at most major retailers.
